The Best Of 2015 Pt 2 Playlist & Streaming Player


DGS-Happy Thanksgiving(1) This week we’re covering the final portion of our Best of 2015 series, highlighting the rest of the artists who will be nominated for this year’s Golden Fork Awards. The history of the GFA goes back to 2009, similar to how this radio platform was birthed, by awarding great artists for their creations over the past year. Yes, it’s in many ways a direct response to what the Pop and mainstream music world has ignored for decades via the Grammy’s.

However, I am very proud of one of my all-time favorite artists who, after 7 album releases, is starting to catch on with a broader audience and was nominated for a Grammy this year: Brandi Carlile. You will notice that most of the rest of our collection were not nominated for the big pop trophy, but certainly worth the acclaim.
If you feel like an Indie musician, unsigned band or DIY artist who released something this year was left off of our list, let me know in the comments below.

Ballots for our upcoming Golden Fork Awards will be coming soon. Get in on the early voting by subscribing to our mailing list on the left.
