New Times / New Times Music Awards

The New Times Music Awards return!

Songwriters, musicians, performers, and bands, it’s once again your time to shine. The sixth annual New Times Music Awards are now accepting entries in six musical genre categories (including an “open” division), a songwriting competition, and an album of the year competition. The genre winners must be available to perform during the Thursday, August 29 live judging competition at SLO Brew. Here’s the scoop.

You can enter up to three original songs in each of the following categories: Country/Americana/Folk, R&B/Blues, Rock/Alternative, Hip-Hop, and Open. You may also enter up to three original songs in the songwriting competition (lyrics must be included). And you may enter one album released between July 7, 2013 to July 7, 2014, for the album of the year category. Each song or album entry costs $10. Entry deadline is Monday, July 7, no later than 5 p.m. You’ve got one month, people! Enter online by following the link on the New Times website at newtimesslo.com.

A Readers Choice Award will be voted on between July 31 and August 11.

Winners in the six genre categories will play a live-judged show at SLO Brewing Co. on Thursday, August 28, with one act crowned for Best Live Performance. Winners of the songwriting and best album categories, as well as runners-up in the genre categories, will receive their awards that same evening.
