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!!
