RADIOMILWAUKEE Triple A WYMS held its annual MILWAUKEE MUSIC AWARDS SHOW YESTERDAY (12/4) at the station’s studio complex.
FIELD REPORT was the only band to win multiple honors this year - Album of the Year and Critics’ Choice awards for its highly acclaimed sophomore record Marigold - and was also named Band of the Year.
“MILWAUKEE music exploded in 2014,” said APD JORDAN LEE. “FIELD REPORT broke out nationally, SYLVAN ESSO’s album was one of the most critically acclaimed freshman releases of the year and VOLCANO CHOIR toured the world. All this happening on the national scene, while here at home so many great bands are coming into their own and releasing great records. While the award results reflect our listeners’ favorites, there were no shortage of close calls on this year’s ballot. MILWAUKEE should be proud of what’s going on in our music scene.”
