The Great Unknowns nominated in the 12th annual Independent Music Awards
We’re pleased to announce that Homefront has been nominated for an Independent Music Award in the Best Alt-Country Album category. We’re honored to be considered for an award by an organization whose judges include extremely awesome folks like Tom Waits, Shelby Lynne, Brandi Carlile, and Suzanne Vega. If you are so inclined, you can even vote for us to receive the additional Vox Pop award.
New tune: Off My Back
Another new song and an extra special video featuring Becky & Avril with the awesomely talented Stefan Custodi (bass), John Seebach (mandolin), and Alex Sens (dobro). Live at IOTA in Arlington, Virginia.
