The 2022 Powered By Rock Music Awards Ceremony presented by Reverend Guitars and The DIY Rock Career
Welcome to the 2022 Powered By Rock Music Awards Ceremony Presentation presented by Reverend Guitars and The DIY Rock Career.
I’m Isaac Kuhlman, and I’m your host for this evening. I personally want to thank you for joining us to help shine light on the rock music scene and to celebrate the music from 2022.
I hope whether you agree with the selections and winners or not, that you go listen to the music and appreciate the hard work each artist has put into their craft.
Over the last few years, I have spent a lot of time getting to know a lot of great people in the rock music community, and it is my mission to help promote bands, artists, labels, companies, organizations and even the behind-the-scenes folks who make the world a better place through rock music.
That’s what this ceremony is all about, and I wanted to make sure that, if nothing else, the bands and artists themselves knew how much the world, including myself, appreciate them.
Normally, we would hold this ceremony a little earlier in the year, but due to other projects taking precedence, this was pushed back a few weeks. Sorry to keep everyone waiting so long.
Our company’s mission is not to just highlight the bands that get played on RADIO often. We are incredibly fond of digging around to find good music through small labels and independent artists.
We write about these bands, we talk to them, we try to get to know them. Why?
Simple - there is a LOT of great music that you are missing out on if you only listen to the radio.
I know I would have never become the music fan I am today if I just followed the mainstream music scene.
The nominees tonight are a collection of bands from various genres of rock music who have combined to put out some absolutely brilliant music from the past year.
I really wanted to make sure that not only do they get recognized for doing so, but I also wanted to try to make it possible for others to understand more about these bands and their music while also seeing that they HAVE won an award for their contributions to art.
Without music, the world is a very quiet and boring place.
It’s been absolutely incredible to see live music and rock music have a resurgence over the last year in various ways with new festivals popping up to new labels, new bands, and renewed scenes cropping back up all over the world after having to sit out the good part of 2 years due to the pandemic.
With that said, I thank you for joining me tonight to celebrate all the fantastic artists and their music from 2022. Let’s start the show!
