Well it's almost that time again! This is a great time of year for local music in the Delaware Valley as WSTW's Hometown Heroes gears up for another award show. In a way, it's the quad-state area's own version of the Grammys as local artists get recognized for their work over the past year.
The Homey Awards are awarded to achievements in local music in 2010. Eligible, albums, EPs and songs/singles were submitted to WSTW Hometown Heroes in 2010 (and played on the show)--from December 2009 through November 2010.
Nominations are being made as we speak, with winners announced the same night as the Grammys February 13th, 2011. I've been there to help announce the winners the past few years, and I had a blast doing it.
Some of the Homey Award categories include:
Artist of the year
Album of the year
EP of the year
Song of the year
Male/Female solo artist
Best new artist
There will of course be other created categories made through the nominations. I think past categories of this sort have included; Best Tattoo, Best Hair, or Best Voice. it's just an overall fun time that shouldn't be missed. Especially by YOU local artists! Be sure to tune into WSTW for Hometown Heroes Homey Awards 2/13/11.
Hometown Heroes plays the best local music in the Delaware Valley--every Sunday night from 8 to 10pm at WSTW 93.7FM, or at wstw.com.
