ROCKWiRED.COM ANNOUNCES THE NOMiNEES FOR THE 2013 ROCKWiRED RADiO MUSiC AWARDS!!!
Frank Waln, Saint Motel, Wayland and Another Lost Year Dominate The Nominations For This Years Rockwired Radio Music Awards.
(Albuquerque, NM - December 17, 2012) Rockwired.com has just announced the nominees for its 2013 Rockwired Radio Music Awards season. For the past seven years Rockwired has celebrated the very best in independent music by letting the listeners pick the top artists that have been featured on Rockwired.com's programming in the previous calendar year. “This year's nominees truly reflect the diversity that we pride ourselves on here at Rockwired.” says Rockwired founder Brian Lush. “We've got metal, we've got hip-hop, we've got contemporary American Indian music and Jazz. It was a exciting year with our expanded programming and the nominations proudly reflect that.”

Some of the top nominees this year include Saint Motel( Best Band, Best Recording LP "Voyeur" and Best Song "1997"), Crash Street Kids (Best Band, Best Recording LP "Sweet Creatures" and Best Song "Sad Julia"), Another Lost Year (Best Band, Best Recording LP "Better Days" and Best Song "War On The Inside", and Wayland (Best Band, Best Recording EP "Welcome to My Head" and Best Song "WelcomeTo My Head"). A complete listing of this years nominees can be found at the  bottom of this page.

The artist with the most nominations this year is the American Indian hip hop artist Frank Waln with four nominations including Best Male Artist, Best Recording (EP) for Born Ready, Best Song for Hear My Cry and Best Recording By An American Indian Artist/Band.

This years proceedings include two new categories – Best Jazz Recording and Best Recording By An American Indian Artist/Band. “We are happy and proud to introduce these two new categories Jazzed and Blue has been quite a coup for the website. The same can be said for Aboriginal Sounds. Both shows have broadened the palette of sound that one can hear at Rockwired.

Lush also admits that the Grammyฎ's recent decision to do away with its Native American Music category was a factor in instituting the category for Rockwired. “It's a slap in the face to ignore the musical achievements of Indian people. There are a lot of great Native artists out there and they deserve recognition.”

The polls for the Rockwired Radio Music Awards are now open. Listeners can cast their vote at http://www.rockwired.com/2013rockwiredballot.html. The polling is provided by Micropoll and will be available until February 22. Voters can only vote once per IP address. The winners will be announced in a special 90 minute podcast on Rockwired.com on March 5, 2013.

   ABOUT THE HOST:
http://www.rockwired.com/brian.JPGBRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn't looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED's way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. "Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable." says LUSH "But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I'd be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I'm the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions."
