So after weeks of holding back we can now release the nominees for 2013, starting tonight. Our regional music judges put a huge effort into scouting the top acts to represent all regions of the country in their respective genres.
Founder / Creative Director of SAMAs Richy Muirhead comments, “I am thrilled with the short list of acts for 2013′s awards. I think this is a great opportunity for new and old music fans to hear an eclectic bill of artists from all over Scotland. Its an exciting time for the SAMAs going into year 4, the music scene here is very much alive!”
