Screen Music Awards: The Drover’s Wife, River and New Gold Mountain clean up

The APRA AMCOS Screen Music Awards returned last night, with several female composers taking home top gongs.

Composer Salliana Seven Campbell has taken home a well-deserved Feature Film Score of the Year for her original music for Leah Purcell’s The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson.

Campbell, a multi-instrumentalist and arranger, used fiddles, banjos, mandolins, piano and electric guitars to create a raw soundtrack to match the film’s Western genre and powerful energy.
