So last year, I had decided to add the Canadian Juno Awards nominations and winners list to the content being presented over on my lifestyle website “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken”. Since they had a Metal and Rock category, I also decided to offer up an edited post of the winning artists here on PiercingMetal.com – This year I felt that it would be fun to also add those same category rundowns from the nomination process for those readers who might be fans of these artists. I’ve even added the Alternative category in for good measure. Take a look.
Hey there my friends, I am here once again to share some music awards winners rundown from the recently held Alternative Press Music Awards. I shared this information last year as longer tenured readers might recall and it doesn’t hurt for more to learn who is getting awards for the work that they do in music. Truth be told this kind of music awards show is more in tune with what we cover here on PiercingMetal than the Grammy Awards are so let’s get down to business. I’ve left the nominees in the list as well so you can see who the winners beat out.
Best Vocalist: Winner: Lynn Gunn (PVRIS)
Ben Barlow (Neck Deep)
Cody Carson (Set It Off)
Derek DiScanio (State Champs)
John O’Callaghan (The Maine)
Keith Buckley (Every Time I Die)
Best Guitarist Presented By PRS: Winner: Jordan Buckley (Every Time I Die)
Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan)
Claudio Sanchez (Coheed And Cambria)
Reba Meyers (Code Orange)
Steve Menoian (I Prevail)
Teppei Teranishi (Thrice)
