The work of Silverchair's, Daniel Johns, has received further accolades in this year's APRA Awards which recognize achievements in Australian songwriting.
In addition to making the shortlist for "Songwriter Of The Year" and "Most Performed Work", Daniel has had two of his songs ("The Greatest View" and "Without You") make it into the top five contenders for "Song Of The Year". He is the only writer to receive multiple nominations in this category.
Both of the nominated songs were among the singles lifted from Silverchair's album "Diorama". The disc is currently back in the Australian top 20 more than a year after its release following Silverchair's recent acclaimed national tour.
Daniel Johns is currently overseas and is about to embark on a series of international concerts with his band. He will be unable to attend the APRA Awards (which happen in Sydney on May 19) but a spokesperson said he was "very pleased" to have his work recognized by fellow Australian songwriters through these nominations.
