February 24, 2016 – The Independent Music Awards (The IMAs) today announced the results of The IMA 14 Vox Pop poll, the fan-determined portion of the prestigious international program for independent artists and releases. This year’s 'Voice of the People' favorites differed from the judge determined winners by a margin of more than 80%.
Fan favorites including Megan Slankard, We Were Superheroes, Brad Lee Schroeder, Jazzation, Celso Salim Band and KATE & JOE BB are among this year's Winners not selected by the Artist and Industry judging panelists which included Amanda Palmer, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Lila Downs, Chris & Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers), Lunice, Jane Monheit, Suzanne Vega, Meshell Ndegeocello, Melissa Auf der Maur, Sharon Jones, Shelby Lynn, Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone Magazine), Terry McBride (Nettwerk Records) and Jason Olaine (Jazz At Lincoln Center) among many others.
Vox Pop voting began in March 2015, when more than 400 nominated self-released & indie label Music, Video, and Visual Arts projects from around the world were announced. To date, nearly 500,000 fans have championed their favorite established artists and rising stars in The IMAs Vox Pop poll. Click here to see the complete list of the Vox Pop 14 winners.
“What makes a work of art a winner? It's simple - someone has to love it," said Martin Folkman, Executive Director of The Independent Music Awards. "The discrepancy between Judge selected winners and Fan favorites illustrates that not only is art subjective - but how critical fan support is to any artist's success. Ultimately, The Independent Music Awards is not about winners and losers. It exists to help exceptional independent artists and releases find new supporters - both in the industry and among music consumers. This way everyone wins. And why new features added to The 15th IMAs will help Artists connect with fans from the moment they enter their new Song & Video projects," Folkman said.
