2019 Independent Blues Awards Voting Starts NOW!
Making a Scene Presents the 2019 Independent Blues Awards!
Congratulations to all the nominees!
The 2019 Independent Blues Awards nominations are now in and ready for you to vote on. We do things a bit different than other awards in that we give you the opportunity to explore and experience artists and music you may not be familiar with.
In order to maximize you experience we highly recommend that you sign up for a FREE Spotify Account. We use Spotify players and links throughout the voting ballot so you can listen to and explore the nominated artists. This helps the artists as they get paid for their played songs, but it also helps them get into the Spotify Matrix so they can be discovered by other listeners on Spotify.
It would help them even more if you create your own playlist in your spotify account and add all your favorite songs and artists. Share this playlist on facebook, twitter and with your friends! Being added to spotify user playlists elevates an artists status on Spotify!
As you go through the ballot we use a simple link format, The link attached to the artist’s name will take you to their website, The Link attached to the CD Title will take you to a Spotify playlist for that CD and the Buy Link will take you to Amazon.com if you want to purchase either the physical CD or mp3 downloads. By using these links even if an artists does not win, they will receive a large benefit from their nomination!
This year we have added the “Best Producer” category to honor and recognize those who work behind the scenes to shape the recordings we all know and love! You can listen to their work as well as look at their credits. \
For the Song nominations, We have created a spotify playlist of all the nominees in the category that you can listen to. Then you can choose your favorite song in each category.
If you take the opportunity to use this ballot as intended this can take some time, which is why we are extending the voting till Midnight on August 1 2019! We have also placed a preview of the ballot below so you can explore our nominees before you commit to actually voting. Once you start voting, all the links are in the ballot just in case you want to revisit any of the nominated artists.
