The 5th Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMA) were held on Friday, July 23rd at The Phoenix Concert Theater, with almost 1000 people in attendance. The evening featured a broad spectrum of the most talented artists across many genres.
Congratulations to Michael Sonier, David Shaida, and Nilima Chowdhury for winning our draw for 2 VIP tickets to the show. (We caught Michael enjoying the show with his guest.)
When TIMA creator Daniela Oliva asked Peter Linseman to get involved, he jumped at the opportunity to support the Toronto Independent Music Scene. As a result, the Best Young Songwriters Award was sponsored and presented by S.A.C.’s Toronto Regional Writers Group hosts, Lily C and Peter Linseman. The S.A.C. awarded the winner with a one year free membership and Music Mentor Productions provided a $250 voucher of recording time.
The nominees for Best Young Songwriter(s) were:
Avoiding the Afterlife.
…and the winner was:
TJ Whitelaw http://www.tjwhitelaw.com/.
Lily and Peter accepted the award on behalf of TJ, who was not able to attend due to a prior booking.
