It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
The SBS contest for 2019’s BEST NEW SOUND gets underway officially on Dec. 18th this year! Nominations are rolling out in no particular order between Dec. 6th – Dec. 15th, then we give all the artists/bands a couple days to rally the troops to come out and VOTE for their favorites from Dec. 18th, all the way up to midnight on Dec. 31st. We’ll have all the details posted up for you on how to vote, where and when, once the nominations have all been announced online.
Until then, join us in congratulating our Day 3 nominee – none other than artist Ete AhPing, a man whose gift for radiant subtly, heartfelt lyricism, and brilliant musicianship definitely did not go unnoticed by us here at SBS. With his latest record/fourth solo album You Don’t Fit In But You Belong, Ete displayed an amazing hybrid combination of the past & the present throughout his album, creating a wonderful set-list of songs that was like The Beatles fused with Death Cab For Cutie, and full of material that speaks strongly to the head and the heart. For the stunning songwriting and wonderful execution that brought a whole record’s worth of beautiful ideas and remarkable tunes to life that captivate the mind every bit as much as they soothed the soul – no list of ours could be complete without Ete AhPing’s contribution to music this year and a much deserved nomination to our 2019 top ten list.
