For those who missed out on the very first LIAR Awards here’s a little recap. Our nominees were online since Christmas Eve and on New Years Day we announced the winners online at Facebook from 7pm.
A total of 57 artists and creatives were nominated for our 16 Awards. Sydney songtress MYLEE GRACE was nominated in four categories and we also had 15 artists nominated in the LIVE ACT Category. We awarded specialty awards to a LOCAL LEGEND; MARK GERBER, an EXPATRIATE AWARD which went to talented music maker JONTI and we also made GERLING our first WALL OF FAME inductees.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the Awards. Please help spread the word about these talented people by sharing their links, music and videos through the many Social Networks available out there today.
Here’s to a great 2012 for Independent Music Culture in Sydney and across Australia. See you in December!
