NASHVILLE, TN (May, 2012) – Label services company, indieExtreme (www.indieExtreme.com) are excited to announce that clients McKnight & Bogdal and Nick Verzosa have been nominated, and made it to the second round ballot for the A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) Libera Awards. The A2IM has partnered with the revolutionary digital promotion platform Official.fm to bring us their first annual Libera Awards ceremony for independent musicians and labels. The variety of the awards given includes Independent album of the Year, Independent Label of the Year, Music Supervisor of the Year, Road Warrior of the Year, and the Creative Packaging Award. Nick Verzosa has been nominated for the Up and Comer award as well as the Road Warrior award which is in reference to his state of nonstop touring. McKnight & Bogdal have been nominated for the Up and Comer award as well. In being nominated, McKnight, Bogdal, and Verzosa have once again been recognized for displaying superior talent, industry acumen, and unparalleled passion for spreading the gift of music.
In the second round of the awards, the nominees will be hand selected and pared down by esteemed experts in independent music, whom represent all walks of the industry. From there, the selection will be narrowed down to five finalists for each category, from which the A2IM members will cast their votes to determine the winners. Both of these acts will enter the second round, hopefully move into the final round and Label leave with the spoils. In this case though, no one comes up empty handed. The awards are prestigious, but more importantly the event serves as a promotional vessel for these independent artists in helping them spread their music.
Stay tuned, the award winners will be announced in New York City on June 1st.
