Established in 2000, the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) has been helping Australian musicians to distribute and promote their music on community radio stations around the country.
Amrap is funded by the CBF and managed by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA).
It provides musicians with a range of free services to help them build their audiences, and identify where their music is being played (through Airplay search) to more easily target their promotions and touring.
The service is also free for all Australian community radio stations, music directors and content producers to promote new Australian music through their programs.
In 2019/20, Amrap worked with Indigtube to launch First Sounds, a compilation showcasing new and emerging First Nations artists.
“Getting all 17 tracks from my latest release ‘Chance To Love’ played on stations across the country probably wouldn’t have happened without Amrap. Discovering Amrap was a game changer for me”. – Ben Mitchell, a singer/songwriter from Healesville
Part of Ben’s album launch and touring schedule included interviews and in-studio performances at community radio stations.
