Spottiswoode’s Piano 45 Nominated for 2011 Independent Music Award!

February 15, 2011 – Independent music fans hungering for diversity can take heart. Renowned for celebrating artists who follow their own muse, Music Resource Group (MRG) announced the Nominees of The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs), the influential awards program for independent bands and fans.
Representing the broad spectrum of today’s global independent music scene, the more than 300 Nominees in the nearly 70 Song, Album, Music Video and Design categories were culled from submissions from North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Europe.
The 10th IMA Nominees are an eclectic mix of rising stars including Strawfoot (Alt. Country Song), Hemoptysis (Metal/Hardcore Song), and Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three (Americana Album); and established talent including telecaster virtuoso, Jim Campilongo (Instrumental Album), experimental multi-genre artist, Flying Lotus (Music Video and Dance/Electronica Song), and indie rockers, Ra Ra Riot (Pop/Rock Album). Perhaps better known as major label acts, this year’s Nominees also include former Hole bassist, Melissa Auf der Maur (Indie/Alt./Hard Rock Album), and singer/songwriter legend Jackson Browne with David Lindley (Live Performance Album).
Winners will be determined by a panel of 62 influential artist and industry judges including Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, Suzanne Vega, Aimee Mann, Pete Wentz, Bettye LaVette, Seal, Adam Duritz, Ozzy Osbourne, Arturo Sandoval, Martin Atkins, Andrew W. K., Shelby Lynne, Kevin Lyman (Warped Tour), Bill Bragin (Lincoln Center), Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone), Pat McGuire (Filter Magazine) and Evan Schlansky (American Songwriter) and will be announced in March, 2011.
