Jacqueline Auguste and Andy Ramjattan of Across The Board took home three Indie Music Channel Awards at the iconic Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on April 28th, 2019. The Indie Music Channel celebrates independent musicians from all genres across the globe, supporting excellence in recording and performing arts and providing opportunities to showcase and celebrate the unsigned artists and the immense pool of talented musicians on the international music scene. The project was created by Emmy Award-winning media entrepreneur and television host, Christopher Ewing.
Across The Board took home three awards for work on their album “Sonic Boom” including “Best Rock Band”, “Best New Band” and “Best Rock Video” for their song “No Curtain Call”, produced by MC2 Music Media in Toronto.
“We had such an incredible time in Los Angeles networking with other independent musicians and attending the Indie Artist Summit. From a composer who took a rock band, choir and full orchestra and created an epic orchestral album, to a 16 year old pop sensation, to an alternative rocker from India, and an incredible classical producer, who created a collaboration across genres, (there was) such amazing talent in this group of award-recipients.” – Jacqueline Auguste
The “Indie Music Channel” awards is an annual event, held in Los Angeles, and judged by a panel of experts from across the industry–production & engineering, artist management, mainstream radio and television, and grammy-winning artists and producers.
