D Grant Smith presents a Golden Fork to Iron & Wine back in 2009.
After a 2 year hiatus, the Golden Fork Awards are back.
This year we’re celebrating the new music from indie and emerging bands like Trevor Hall, Dry The River, Dick LeMasters, Ronnie Fauss and others. You decide who had the best album, who was the best artist, best band, and best Feature Artist from 2014.
Cast your votes HERE.
The Golden Fork Award is a democratic means of awarding artists a prestigious congratulations from you the fans for music produced in a given year. The nominees came from regularly requested music and artists from this past year. Write ins are also welcome in each category.
Our Golden Fork Trophy, presented to winners each year. You pick the winner. That’s Democracy in action.
What do the winners get? The satisfaction of a fan-based award and the potential to have one of these on their mantel (or trophy case or what-have-you).
While the Grammy’s are being buzzed around, there are only a handful of “judges” who decide who gets that. Yes, that’s a notable recognition for success. But you the fans are left out of that conversation.
Our platform is all about connecting fans with emerging indie bands and artists, many of whom are working on their own to grow their platform. Help them take their music a step further. Vote now for your favorite artists featured this year.
Nominees this year include Jenny & Tyler, William Fitzsimmons, Wendy Colonna, Dry The River, Manchester Orchestra, James Vincent McMorrow, Trevor Hall, Ronnie Fauss, Dick LeMasters, Chuck Ragan, Fink, Matthew Mayfield, Ayron Jones & The Way, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Rah Rah, The Infatuations, and The Both.
