2 FEET MUSIC are very proud to announce that TAXI VIOLENCE, THE GRAEME WATKINS PROJECTand THE DIRTY SKIRTS have all been nominated for SAMA’s! Nominees were announced at this morning’s MTN SAMA 18 (South African Music Awards) Press Conference and we’ve received the following nominations:
TAXI VIOLENCE have received 2 nominations for their album “Unplugged: Long Way From Home” for “BEST ROCK ALBUM” and “DUO OR GROUP OF THE YEAR”. Says Jason Ling, bassist for Taxi Violence: “To receive SAMA nominations for ‘Best Rock Album’ and ‘Best Duo or Group of the Year’ is a great honour and we are very thankful. It’s a good feeling to be acknowledged as a band and for what we have been trying to achieve over the past seven years.”
THE GRAEME WATKINS PROJECT, who released their debut album “Corridors of the Mind” last year, received a nomination for “BEST ROCK ALBUM” along with “BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR” for their hit single “Music Affair”, which was directed and co-produced by BRIAN MASON and GRAEME WATKINS. “It’s a huge feather in our cap to be nominated, but on our debut album, it’s just beyond words! We are so stoked to be recognized by our peers in this industry and feel very honoured.” Responds an elated front man Graeme Watkins, on the 2 SAMA nominations.
THE DIRTY SKIRTS received a nomination for “BEST ALTERNATIVE ALBUM” for their latest release “Lost In The Fall”, which has arguably been hailed as their best album to date! “The band is really happy about being nominated for Best Alternative Album. We were really satisfied with the work we’ve put into “Lost In The Fall” and we’re quietly pleased that it’s received this recognition,” comments front man Jeremy de Tolly.
2 Feet Music wishes the nominees all the best at the SAMA 18 awards on 29 & 30 April at Sun City.
