HOT Spotlight…The New England Music Awards


CT’s Guide to Voting Local

Voting closes MARCH 15

The nominees for The New England Music Awards have been announced.  And our local CT musicians were shown a lot of love.  Now the object is to cash those nominations in for wins for the Nutmeggers!  “I want to vote, but I don’t know some of the bands.  How do I know which artists are from CT?”  We here at LBR are going to help you out with that!

With that in mind, the following are all the CT bands that are nominated for awards in their respective categories along with their self-proclaimed genre as well as links to where their music can be heard.

You should note that, with your help, we can make this happen.  While CT has been represented in a few of the categories, states like MA have multiple entries in each category.  This will likely split the competition.

Voting is easy.  The ballot itself is on-line and simply requires a click on the musician you are selecting.  Please note…As you peruse, don’t actually click until you are ready because it will register the vote immediately.


CT is in it to win it!  Vote often and tell your friends!!

Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez – lsg Original

Lover of music and the visual arts, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez is the insanity behind lsg original photography. lsg specializes in artist and performer photography. She’s had the honor of photographing national bands such as Weezer, Snoop Dogg, A Simple Plan, Paramore, Whitesnake, Wye Oak, and The Antlers along with countless local bands and performers.

Hailing from Hartford, CT, Lisa is a life- long music connoisseur. Growing up, her mother exposed her to everything from The Stones to Simon and Garfunkel to Earth, Wind, and Fire to Loretta Lynn…and everything in between. No genre was left unexplored in her vinyl collection. She saw her first concert at 14…Rod Stewart at the (then called) Hartford Civic Center. Thirty years later, it’s still her favorite pastime.

Lisa has two kids (grown!) and a day job. Her loves of music and photography have melded into a second career. And her love of CT keeps her promoting and pushing for local artists and performers. Lisa spends the greater part of her free time seeing and shooting live bands, performers, and artists and art work…and purchasing vinyl!
