SRL Independent Music Awards 2018 - Best Pop Music Video 2018 - Drew Sestito

Making his debut in 2015 with his debut single, "Stitched" and EP, "Empty Pockets", Drew Sestito was quick to cement his name in the minds of pop music fans, critics and industry insiders. "Empty Pockets" is a 5 track album that displays a unique and very much appreciated approach to the genre right from the instrumentation and lyrics to the overall feel of every song. Drew became one of the top new artists to watch on Philly's local independent (indie) pop music scene and one of the most talented from the region in a very long time. He continues to write and release new records regularly and has already started building a solid repertoire of songs that are guaranteed to take him to the top including new tracks like "T.O.O" and "Girl With the Flower Tatoo", which have been hailed as some of his best recordings so far.

SRL Independent Music Awards 2018 - Best Pop Music Video 2018 - Trevor Ohlsen

Born in Iron Mountain, a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, USA, Trevor lived a simple ordinary life. Around the age of ten he asked his dad if he could get a guitar, and at the same time started taking piano lessons. He fell in love. Music started taking over his life, and he was completely okay with that. Fast forward nearly ten years, two independent albums, two singles and countless gigs along the way, here we are. Trevor is currently living just outside the Twin Cities pursuing music full time, working on a new EP and building up a following. He is still an independent artist but has no doubt that one day he'll sign a deal with a reputable record company.

SRL Independent Music Awards 2018 - Best Pop Music Video 2018 - Hannah Gill

Hannah Gill & The Hours combines '70s lo-fi pop and rock with contemporary soul and blues and transforms them into sweet and sultry songs that overflow with passionate feelings. Steered by the creative direction and voice of soulful 19-year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter Hannah Gill combined with skilled guitarist, songwriter and arranger Brad Hammonds, the group offers up music with contagious melodies and mindful lyrics. Each song presents a thrilling story about how humans connect through their experiences and reveals the intrepid singer’s intimate perspectives on love, loss, longing, hope and transformation. Gill’s lush voice, Hammonds’ sparkling fretwork and both members’ background in improvisational jazz give the duo’s hypnotic recordings and dynamic live performances otherworldly gravity. Hannah Gill & The Hours’ debut EP, The Water was released on iTunes on the 13th of May, 2016.
