Every last one of you put out incredible music for us to listen to over the past year and I personally couldn’t thank you enough. There are reviewers that listen to music once, and put it away forever; but you know that’s not me, nor has it ever been. Your music, will remain a part of my life for the rest of my time on this floating rock we call Earth…as I’m sure it will be for many, many people out there. I can tell you that firsthand because your FANS are absolutely INCREDIBLE!
I want to thank each and every one of you who voted….this was a turnout beyond all expectations in terms of how FLOODED my e-mail inbox was every day with your votes and support. Heartwarming for a guy that spends his life dedicated to the indie scene; you guys came out in MASSIVE numbers to support your favorite sounds of 2014. It would seem that there are definitely a ton of people out there that believe in these bands as much as we do here, and again, THANK YOU to you all for voting.
