Heartfelt congratulations to all our winners – you’ve earned it! But we’d like to say thanks to every single one of you for your passion for independent music, and for your dedication & commitment to staying true to your hearts by taking control of your own careers and musical futures. If we could give each and every one of you an award, we would. Truly, you guys are awesome and we love you (aww, we’re getting all teary, and it isn’t even New Year’s Eve!).
See you in 2013!
