Too Slim & the Taildraggers/Alexis P. Suter Jimi Award Recipients!!
It’s that time of year again – The Annual Blues411 Jimi Awards!
What started as a small web site for promoting and supporting blues artists, now has turned into a force for good that keeps blues artists and their music in the spotlight around the world, under a very big tent.
While we cannot give an award to, or nominate everyone, we try our best to spread the love around in keeping with our mission statement. We believe that we are where The Blues Thrives.
We have created Award JPEG’s for all nominees & winners at our SmugMug site (click here). They are perfectly sized to use for Facebook cover photos. Feel free to download and share with pride!
So starting us off in our traditional manner, we would like to offer a toast to everyone we have meet this year, artists, fans, new friends and those of you who have stood by our side and supported us over the five years. Let us raise our glasses and enjoy our winner in the drink category.
Rock blues – Blues rock…whatever, we can split hairs over a Bacon Manhattan at the Roasating Room later. Now let’s see who takes home the Jimi Award. And there really is a difference between the two categories.
Rock/Blues Release of The Year:
Too Slim & The Taildraggers: Blood Moon
Women sang them Blues – Vocals are the very root of the blues, as it is a spoken art form in it’s origins. These ladies can make you cry, laugh or make you wanna rock it all night long. Here we honor the instrument known as voice and the ladies who bring it. Out of these great choices comes our winner and she never fails to deliver the goods with deep down soul and passion that elevates all around her.
Alexis P. Suter
NEW – 20 feet or so from stardom This is a new category. It honors those artists who are not the front liners, the ‘stars’ those folks who sing background or harmonies, or play with a variety fo bands when needed because they are that good and are in demand. Our winner this provides a certain kind of light to the stage and please remember all these folks are worthy of your love and support.
20 Feet Or So From Stardom Award:
Vicki Bell (Alexis P. Suter Band – vocals and more)
