NOMINATIONS INCLUDE BEST POP SONG AND BEST POP ALBUM
Rising Kobalt/AWAL artist Taylor Grey has been named as two-time Nominee in the 16th annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs). Her single, ‘Miami (feat. Spencer Kane),” is up for Best Pop Song and her debut album, Space Case, is up for Best Pop Album. More than 400 innovative self-released and indie label projects culled from thousands of submissions worldwide, were nominated by fans and industry panelists in 96 Album, Song, EP, Music Producer, Music Video, and Design categories. The ceremony will take place on March 31st at New York City’s historic Lincoln center.
“I am so honored to be nominated for two Independent Music Awards amongst so many talented musicians,” says Taylor. “This recognition really cements my love for music and my confidence that dedication and passion pay off.”
Taylor Grey’s debut album, Space Case, was released last summer and features collaborations with Brad Simpson (The Vamps) and singer/songwriter Spencer Kane. The first single from the album, “Never Woulda Letcha,” and the follow up single, “Miami,” both have over 1 million views on YouTube. Space Case was produced by Josh Abraham (P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, Thirty Seconds to Mars, and Shakira), David Kunico (Dierks Bentley, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez) and Nico Stadi and demonstrates Taylor’s uncanny ability to sing of self-awareness and introspection, while maintaining a positive and bright melodic and rhythmic feel. Her most recent single, “Poison,” is perhaps her most honest and emotionally evolved track that explores and exposes her vulnerability as a songwriter. The song has been well received and has been played on national radio.
