From Dave Dobbyn to David Dallas, the 20 artists battling it out for this year's Apra Silver Scroll award are as varied as they can get.

But Apra's Anthony Healey says they all have one thing in common: they're all good.

"These songs come from the new and old, the north and south and span all genres," he says.

"They are connected only by the fact they've been written here in New Zealand and each is, in their own unique way, excellent."

Voting on the shortlist, confirmed today, will take place from now until August 14 by Apra's 10,000 members.
