Some great news this week. Trace has been nominated for an IMA (Independent Music Award) in the Best Alt Country Song category. It’s an international award which makes it particularly special, with some pretty esteemed judges taking part including Tom Waits & Kathleen Brennan, Slayer and Amy Lee. Trace, which ironically I had originally written off, seemed to be the song everyone dug from last year’s 7″ Hank Volume 1. Recorded with Trent Crawford in his little studio on the NSW Central Coast, it also features the vocals of the extremely talented Tori Forsyth who is killing it right now. See below some more detail about the awards and below a link to the fan component where you can have your say.
