Voting is now open for the first ever Liverpool Music Awards.
The judges scrutinised all of the nominations, shortlisting three in each category, and these were announced at the launch party at Erics on 10th October.
The fantastic news, as far as we’re concerned, is that Liverpool Acoustic Live has been shortlisted for the Live Music Night of the Year.
So… if you get the chance, please follow the link, register, and vote – it would make us very happy to know that the acoustic side of the Liverpool music scene is being recognised alongside the indie, pop, dance, rock, and classical music. And it’s really easy to register using your facebook or twitter login.
UPDATE – Voting closed at midnight on 2nd November.
Many people dismissed the Liverpool Music Awards before they’d even started, so it’s great to see such a wide range of music and genres represented in the list of nominations.
We thought we’d reproduce the categories and nominees here, along with helpful hints where some of our favourite acoustic artists are involved.
ONE TO WATCH
Hosting the awards night at The Dome is BBC Radio 2 DJ Janice Long, and there will be performances from chart-topping band Lawson, Liverpool indie popsars The Wombats, X Factor finalist Craig Colton, MOBO Unsung Award winner Esco Williams, plus more acts yet to be announced. Money raised on the night will be in aid of Youth Music charity.
