KINGSTON rapper Jay Chase, also known as Phreaze, will be walking the red carpet in Sydney this week after being named as a finalist in the 2012 MusicOz awards.

Each year, the awards highlight up and coming musical talent in 18 musical categories including singer, songwriter, alternative, blues, country and pop.

For the first time, the 29-year-old has been nominated as a finalist in the urban category.

"The MusicOz awards are the biggest independent music awards in Australia, so it is very huge to be included as a finalist," Phreaze said.

"My song Let Me Go featuring Joseph Gatehau from X Factors 3 Wishez was submitted into the MusizOz awards in the urban category.

"It was then judged by an esteemed group of Australian music industry professionals titled the MusicOz judging academy.

"I am very humbled and honoured to have been chosen by such an elite group of industry professionals."

In the urban category, Phreaze is up against 38 other artists for the chance of winning a record deal, live performance on television, studio time as well as musical equipment.

The singer and song writer is currently finalising her recordings for her first solo debut album, which will be sent to America for mixing and mastering this year.

She has also signed on with Powermouth Entertainment as her management company for her album.
