The loss of life and livelihood due to the pandemic has been staggering. For the music industry, which largely depends on live performances including concerts and festivals, the lockdown has handed a heavy blow. In these dark times, we wanted to find reason to cheer for the independent music community by recognizing the work of deserving talent. This idea is at the core of The Indies, an award to celebrate the best music released by the artists and bands. As much as awards are a platform to applaud and reward good work, they are a reason for all of us to get together and celebrate. Drum roll for The Indies 2019, please!
The Indies is an attempt by a small group of people to bring some cheer to this small section of the music industry and it is a result of pure passion and love for music.
