It's hard to believe Whalie is turning five! Yes, the latest Whalie Awards production, designed to recognize and honor participants in the Southeastern Connecticut music scene, takes place on June 7 in New London's Hygienic Art Park.
Earlier this week, nominees for 40 awards were announced. There are 20 People's Choice categories - with trophies determined by public online voting - and as many Critics' Choice categories, wherein music biz professionals from across the country will vote for nominees based on songwriting, production and overall presentation.
The Whalies benefit New London Music Festivals, the nonprofit outfit behind several live music events including the I Am and Traditions festivals. To vote in the People's Choice Whalie categories, access iamfest.org. Deadline is 7 p.m. June 4. For more information, go to wailingcity.com.
