Shailer Park's Jack Giess, 17, is the face behind Tokyo Twilight.

On Tuesday night Jack not only received the award for his electronic track, Little Things, featuring DVNA, he also performed as part of the awards showcase.

Acting mayor Cherie Dalley congratulated Jack. "We were thrilled to have three Logan artists included in this year's awards and are especially proud about Jack's win," Cr Dalley said.

The night also included Logan artist RIVAH (Bec Laughton) and Kitch (Tu'uga)/Jungaji, a former Logan resident.

RIVAH was one of the finalists for the $10,000 Billy Thorpe Scholarship which was awarded to Pool Shop and Kitch (Tu'uga)/Jungaji was nominated in the Indigenous Award category.

"It is a credit to our city to have three artists heavily involved in this year's QMAs and especially to have Tokyo Twilight take out one of the main categories," Cr Dalley said.

"It is one of the reasons why we are throwing our support behind Logan Live Music Month in July as we have some wonderful musical talent in our city which deserves to be showcased."

As well as winning an award, Jack also wowed the crowd with his performance when he took to the stage with performers including Amy Shark, DZ Deathrays, Clea and Emma Beau.

Jack said he would keep up the hard work and produce more singles and eventually an album.

"I've put out two singles already and got a few new singles I'm working on," Jack said.

"I like to work on the go and I feel my most creative when I'm sitting on a bus or train."

Jack said his music was more mellow than traditional electronic pop describing it as "ambient electronic pop".

More than 70 judges from across Australia crowned 23 winners from songwriters at the QMAs held at the Brisbane Showground's Royal International Convention Centre.
