An Australian icon, Jimmy Little’s legacy is as large as the country he lived in, running deep within the wider community. A proud indigenous artist who was always the first to give something back to the industry that helped him become a household name, Little’s legacy will be continued with assistance from Warner Music Australia with the Jimmy Little Grant.
An annual grant, it will be used to support managers of Indigenous artists with the aim to improve opportunities for Indigenous artists within the Australian music industry. The grant will be run in partnership with the Association Artist Managers (AAM), who already have a successful management mentoring program in place, but with emphasis on those managers of Indigenous bands and artists. This is in addition to the fine work for improving indigenous heath that the Jimmy Little Foundation is committed to.
