    Last Conservative w/ The Divisions Initially calling themselves the Conservatives, this Buffalo group formed in 1997 and performed in and around the Buffalo area. After releasing several cassettes and EPs in early 1998, Last Conservative released their first single, "Cardboard Soul," on the Mary's Lounge Records compilation MLR-1. This was followed in early 1999 with the second single, "Don't Touch Me," which garnered much airplay on Buffalo and college radio stations. The band's fan base slowly grew as comparisons to Counting Crows and Our Lady Peace did not hurt the group. In 1999, the band released their first album, Unremarkable. This was followed by more touring both in the United States and Canada, including a showcase performance at the North by Northeast Festival. After a three-song EP, My Old Self, was released in early 2001, the band returned to the studio with producers and engineers who had worked with another Buffalo group, Goo Goo Dolls. In 2002, These In-Between Times was released on LC Music Group. Last Conservative has opened for Ours, Nickelback, and Gigolo Aunts, as well as sharing the stage with Jimmy Eat World, Cold, and Sum 41, among others. The band followed up These In-Between Times two years later with On to the Next One, which was produced by Robby Takac (Goo Goo Dolls) and issued on Good Charamel. Pretty New Things then appeared in August 2006.

    Smile Empty Soul w/ Bridge To Grace, Saint Ridley, Super Killer Robots, & Lost Elysium! Smile Empty Soul is a heavy alternative trio formed while its three members were still in Santa Clarita, California high schools. Led by singer/guitarist Sean Danielson, the band also included drummer Derek Gledhill and bassist Ryan Martin. After honing their sound with numerous hometown gigs, Smile Empty Soul began venturing to the Sunset Strip, and eventually passed a demo to Todd Parker of the Los Angeles indie ThroBack. That exposure led to a deal with Jason Flom's Lava imprint, which was expanding in the wake of early signee Kid Rock's white-hot success. The trio hooked up with producer John Lewis Parker, who was at the helm for their self-titled debut, issued by Lava in May 2003. With its screeching guitars and Danielson's rage-filled vocals, the album was indebted to the alternative sounds of the early '90s. Vultures, Smile Empty Soul's third record (the band's sophomore outing, Anxiety, was scheduled for release in 2005, but a split with Lava kept the album from seeing the light of day until the band released it through their own MRAfia Records label in 2009) hit the streets in 2006, and was followed by the aforementioned Anxiety. Their fourth full-length, Consciousness, arrived in 2009, followed by 3's in 2012. http://www.smileemptysoul.com/

Our winners list will first be available at the ceremony, then posted online after! --- About the ALL WNY Music Awards: It's not a matter of who wins & loses, this is an attempt to bring the scene together and give recognition to those who put good work in. What you 'win' is having other people notice your band or organization. If someone likes other acts similar to yours, and sees your act associated with them, it can help get yours noticed as well. If someone is looking to get some new gear or things for their band, there's a posted list of places you can check out in the area. That's the thought behind it, not popularity or seeing who is the best in any way. It's all for fun, we are not in a competition our neighbors in the same scene. Each year we give out certificates to the Top 3 in votes for each award, along with some 'Judges Picks' from friendly organizations in the local scene. Voting is counted through online polls, each person may vote once in each of our 50 categories :) If you have ideas/suggestions/or would like to help out in any way let us know! We want to hear everyone's ideas on how to make this help everyone it can :)

For Uh Huh Baby Yeah!, conflict is all part of the bigger equation. "We've seen so much turmoil and for the longest time it was hard to rise above it", says singer Kevin Fletcher, "And it shows in our music. We're coming back harder, faster, heavier - this is a side of us you've never seen." http://uhhuhbabyyeah.com/ http://www.killmatilda.com/

    Hollywood Logan's Legendary Drifters (Two Shows!) The Legendary Drifters have been hailed as the best of its genre on the music scene today! They reflect the entire Legendary Drifters' presence in the music industry, and weave a blend of nostalgic magic with on-stage excitement. The Legendary Drifters story began with their first Atlantic Records recording "Money Honey" in 1953. From 1959 through 1964, The Legendary Drifters made musical history, setting musical trends for the nation and the world to follow! In 1959, The Legendary Drifters presented their first million record seller, "There Goes My Baby," which was followed by the two-sided Smash hits "Dance with Me" and "True Love." January, 1960, saw The Legendary Drifters hit the charts with the fantastic sounds of "This Magic Moment." In the summer of this same, everyone was humming and singing the song that would become The Legendary Drifters second million record seller "Save the Last Dance for Me." "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "Up on the Roof," on the same album, became their third million record sellers with the exciting follow-up "On Broadway." The group's fourth million record seller, "Under the Boardwalk," was followed by "Sand in My Shoes" and Saturday Night at the Movies!" The Legend continues today, as the group is now headed by the sweet tenor voice of Lee Logan. Lee has had the pleasure of singing with the legendary original Legendary Drifters for almost 40 years and has traveled the world over singing these timeless hits! Logan is joined by Yohan Harbin, Jerry Hendrix and Ed Collins and together they have formed one great team, vowing to never let the magic die! Come and share the most electrifying experience in the entertainment world today, enjoying rave reviews worldwide.

    Daily Grind w/ Wacko Fest, Kill The Clock, Forever The Athlete, No Vacancy, & Tribute To Our Youth Sly guitar riffs and warm drums resonate through the Hard Rock Cafe as Daily Grind plays a headlining set in their hometown of Pittsburgh, PA on December 27th, 2013. Loyal fans move closer to the stage to listen to and sing along with the suburbanite storytellers' fusion of alternative rock and hip-hop. On stage are the core of Daily Grind: Brad Hammer on lead vocals and guitar, Myles Mahoney on lead guitar and vocals, Matt Majot on bass and vocals, and Chris Petteys on drums. During a basement session in early 2013, the song "Don't Forget Me" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers lit the spark for these four spirits to become one cohesive unit. Daily Grind hit the Pittsburgh scene hard with a new lineup of original songs shortly after. Ranging from hip-hop to hard rock, their biggest musical influences include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, Incubus, Biggie Smalls, and a slew of other classic and modern acts. Daily Grind is independently producing their debut album "The Green Plan" for release in mid March before setting off on their first national tour. Tour stops include New York City, Denver, and Los Angeles, with over 50 shows in under three months. For videos, music, and tour dates check out Daily Grind's website at www.dailygrindmusic.com.

    Shane Jacob Philips Social Justice and Peace is Shane Philips’ latest release in two years and is a departure from his last three albums that were rooted deeply in traditional soul. Searching for something more, Philips decided to immerse himself into a community of folk artists and was able to focus his songwriting around stories that spoke to his life growing in a farm town and countless other events that would eventually shape his life as he traveled around the world. Philips eventually found himself at a piano in Nashville Tennessee where his roots in soul finally found convergence with the narrative he was searching for in folk music. After the death of his father, Philips tumbled fast a furious into an abyss where he found himself heart broken from the breakup of a seven year relationship, bankrupt and in jail. The universe would eventually bale him out with a job that eventually proved more than a paycheck. It was the vocation of working with homeless youth not very much younger than him. Life experience would prove indispensable. Two years later Philips’ caught his wave to Africa where his travels would complete his father’s wish at the top of Kilimanjaro. Frostbite from that summit would not hold Philips back. He would return to North America with a sense of urgency. His music would have to be relevant to himself before anyone else. His Actions would have to speak louder than words. His “Walk For Water” would galvanize the spirit and at that moment Social Justice & Peace was born. Social Justice and Peace does what it says. It speaks to ideas that used to unite the world but now divide us. Philips with a voice truly beyond his years tells a story that music of today rarely talks about. His message asks us to look inward and act outward with the idea that love is the universal fabric that holds humanity together. Shane Philips has performed throughout Europe and North America with notable shows at the San Francisco Folk Festival, a guest singer with the Wooten Brothers in Nashville, TN and a participant on the NBC show "The Voice".

The two combine their musical talents in 2009 after their gardening business went under during America's economic crash. They sold their belongings to live on the road, and they've never looked back. Red is a life-long musician who has been writing music and performing in bands for most of his life. Sami is a professional dancer who has translated her embodied sense of music in an unconventional way; she sings, plays the keys and drums simultaneously. http://www.callowmusic.com/ "Their albums Orb Weaver (2012) and Blue Spells (2013) are elegantly dark and sonically searing collections of songs that create rock operatic overtures with shadowy vocals flowing over the memorable, echo-latent instrumentation. Callow is a chillingly talented duo who has committed their lives to creating music, and influencing audiences with their heavy and vivid art songs." - Jordannah, Deli Mag SF “Callow = Band of Horses + Roky Erickson + Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. What punk rock would have been had it evolved from The Velvet Underground’s airy slowness rather than their minimalism.” - SLUG Magazine "Callow's sound is haunting and beautiful, with angst and tension balanced with primal minimalism." - San Francisco Chronicle

    Aaron Carter w/ Andrea Godin, Roger Ortega, Evident Truth, & Breckenwood The youngest male solo artist to have four Top 40 singles, pop sensation Aaron Carter began his career in show biz at the tender age of seven. Over the next five years he made a name for himself as an energetic and charismatic performer, both onstage and on albums such as his 1998 self-titled debut and the following year's Surfin' USA, both of which were successful in Japan and Germany as well as in the States. A single on the Pokemon: The First Movie soundtrack, opening gigs for the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, a biography and video collection, and appearances on Nickelodeon set the stage for his third album, 2000's Aaron's Party (Come Get It). The party continued on Oh Aaron, which was issued in summer 2001. Successful tours with both the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears kept him busy into the next year, but by the spring of 2002 he was back in the studio again. Calling on several big-name pop producers, Carter put together Another Earthquake! during the year and released it that fall http://aaroncartertour.com/

    O-Town In 1999, ABC began airing one of the first reality shows in major network history, “Making the Band”, which chronicled the formation and rise to success of the boy band, Otown. The public tuned in to watch as Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Ashley Parker Angel, & Dan Miller signed with Clive Davis’ J Records, released the #1 singles “Liquid Dreams” and “All or Nothing”, and achieved platinum success with their debut album. Despite their success, the band broke up in 2004 both to escape an unfair record contract and to pursue individual endeavors. After a crash course in the entertainment industry in their early twenties, the guys have enjoyed branching off into different facets of the entertainment business. Their first experience left them with a desire to become more educated, seeing first hand how incredibly complicated (and sometimes corrupt) the industry can be. And now, after 10 years apart, Trevor, Jacob, Erik, and Dan are reuniting as friends with a renewed passion for making music together again. “This one’s for the fans and everyone who supported us from the beginning.” -Otown http://www.otownofficial.com/
