The ARIA Awards top off what has been a huge year for the Teskey Brothers. Last week Run Home Slow was also nominated for a Recording Academy Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical! The category recognises Paul Butler & Sam Teskey as the album engineers along with Joe Carra as mastering engineer. 

The Grammy nomination announcement followed four Music Victoria Award wins – including the Premier’s Prize for Best Victorian Album, Best Band, Best Song (‘So Caught Up’) and Best Regional/Outer Suburban Act.

Run Home Slow debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album chart in August and stayed in the top 7 for four consecutive weeks. The release week also saw Run Home Slow and their debut, Half Mile Harvest sit at #1 and #2 respectively on the iTunes Album Chart.
