Of all of submission we've received we would like to take this time to recognize a few select artists whose work has set a higher standard of Production Excellence. The below are just a few of the items IMD looks at when reviewing your work:
Congratulations to the below winners!
Lena Fayre - Oko
Los Angeles based Lena Fayre delivers a superlative bland of music via this stunning debut collection entitled "Oko" In her own words "Oko marks the beginning" and is a direct extension of herself during the time of it's conception. "It helped me to push myself, and realize what I needed to do now." All songs on "Oko" are grooving, impassioned, soulful and sonically entertaining. In many respects "Oko" showcases the pinnacle of Modern day Alternative Pop. What's more Fayre's striking look, persona, and overall mystique will demand your attention, but it's it's her amazing voice that sealed the deal for me personally. All this and more make "Oko" by Lena Fayre my 2014 "CD OF THE YEAR."
Bigg Redd - Do You Qualify
Louisiana based Josef “Bigg Redd” Arline brings us his amazing blend of Creole Soul via this amazing 13 track CD entitled Do You Qualify. I've never heard one artist touch so many genre's before - so effectively and so effortlessly. From Delta Blues to Motown to Classic Americana to Reggae and even Saloon Jazz to Jazzy Pop, Bigg Redd Arline remains one off the hottest undiscovered talents I have ever heard.
2 The Nines - Oblivion
Oblivion by "2 The Nines" is an amazing Cinderella story based out of Los Angeles, California. It's 2 core members (T.J. Runnells, Nick Midulla) spent years carefully crafting this 13 song catalog in their basement with nothing more than a guitar, microphone and a beat box. The final result is an amazing collection of songs that combine world class songwriting, with breathtaking performances. Throw in strong marketability, good chops and a producers touch make this debut CD from "2 The Nines" one of the best Independent productions I've ever heard - period.
J.J. Crowne - Songs of Innocence and Experience
Amazing songwriting, passionate vocal presence, and music that is straight from the heart J.J Crowne delivers via this impressive 12 song catalogue. Songs of Innocence and Experience remains one of the best self produced productions I have ever heard.
David Silva - Moorpark Oasis
World class songwriting, superb musicianship, music that is pure, genuine. Trust me when I say you can't fake this stuff folks.Moorpark Oasis by David Silva remains one of the best American productions I've ever heard.
Drum Dynasty - Drum Dynasty
Fully loaded 2 CD set, with excellent musicianship, amazing sonic layering, and a production value that belongs in IMAX theatres.For only 13 bucks - need I say more!
Tim Miller - Adelaide
Bravo to Tim Miller for not only releasing a well crafted, emotionally charged collection of music, but also paying a little extra to record it on Analog tape for a warm and smooth sounding feel.
