Progressive Music Awards 2014 Are Go. Nominees Announced...

Vote now @ awards.progmagazine.com

Prog Magazine is proud to announce its third annual Progressive Music Awards presented by Orange Amplification.

The 2014 awards will be hosted at the prestigious Underglobe, beneath Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, a venue which plays nicely on progressive rock’s rich theatrical vein, on Thursday September 11, and hosted for the third time by one of the world’s most respected news broadcasters and journalist Gavin Esler. You can vote for your choice of the nominees at: awards.progmagazine.com.

Transatlantic and Dream Theater lead the way with four nominations each and go head-to-head in three categories - Album of the Year, Band/Artist of the Year and the Storm Thorgerson Grand Design Award - and this is made all that more interesting with Transatlantic drummer Mike Portnoy being a former member of Dream Theater! Meanwhile, last year’s Prog God winner Ian Anderson is nominated for three awards, as is Anathema, Haken, ex-Marillion singer Fish and Bigelf.

Jerry Ewing, Prog Magazine Editor, says, “I think more than ever, the depth of quality of the music from the wide spread of artists represented in this year’s nominations both further enhance the fact that progressive music is flourishing and, perhaps more pertinently, progressing as a force in the modern day musical world. It’s been great to see the Progressive Music Awards help convey the progressive message to the masses whilst simultaneously allowing the faithful to rightly celebrate their deserving heroes.”

In its short but illustrious history, The Progressive Music Awards has received both critical and public acclaim for acknowledging and celebrating one of the most successful but unsung genres of music. Previous award recipients include Rick Wakeman and Ian Anderson as Prog Gods in 2012 and 2013 respectively, along with other million-selling rock legends such as Genesis, Carl Palmer, Rush and Hawkwind’s Dave Brock also being recognised. It has also awarded up-and-coming artists such as TesseracT, Sound Of Contact and Big Big Train who have all gone from strength-to -strength since picking up awards.
