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 SonierDavid Shaida, and Nilima Chowdhury for winning our draw for 2 VIP tickets to the show.  (We caught Michael enjoying the show with his guest.)

Peter Linseman and Lily C

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:

Medicine Dog,
TJ Whitelaw,
Tomorrow Depends,
Avoiding the Afterlife.
…and the winner was:

TJ Whitelaw

Lily and Peter accepted the award on behalf of TJ, who was not able to attend due to a prior booking.
