For those of you who haven’t heard the great news yet, the local band Write Minded was recently awarded the Best Funk/Fusion/Jam Album for their album “Eye Above” at the 15th annual Independent Music Awards.
Pretty. Big. Deal.
The band, who formed January of 2015, has a unique style of music that flirts with a range of genres— everything from hip-hop, rock, reggae, funk, and soul, attracting all sorts of listeners. Their album “Eye Above” was recorded right here in our beloved Fort Collins.
Just so we are all on the same page and understand just what a big deal this award is, it is crucial I mention over 400 self-released and indie label projects were submitted from all over the world. The winning projects were chosen by top recording artist like Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, Slayer, The Kills, Lalah Hathaway…just to name a few.
So once again, from everyone here at Scene Magazine—CONGRATULATIONS Write Minded. Way to represent the music scene in Fort Collins.
