In addition to the NEMA’s, there is also an award being given specifically to an outstanding musician under the age of 21 (Friday, February 21).  It’s called the RADAR (Rising Artist Detection and Recognition) Award and CT has TWO nominees for this as well.  They are Sarah Barrios and The Meadows Brothers.  Only one of them can take this award so I am rooting equally for CT!  Congrats to you both for your achievements and your nomination.  You can see who else has been nominated here:

Last year, Jennifer Hill and the women of CTAintsobad.com (Jenna and Jess) went to the awards.  We had a BLAST.  I encourage all of you who are nominated and your friends and family and, well, everyone in the state of CT to come to the ceremony.  Let’s represent.  Our musicians have worked so very hard and this is an honor for all of them.

Here are just a few pictures from last year’s awards.  Get there this year!!

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!
