Continuing to shine a light on emerging talent on the Scottish alternative music scene, the SAMAs have spent this year celebrating bands from across Scotland at a number of intimate gigs, but will now turn to the public to award the best on the scene in 2015.
SAMA’s founder Richy Muirhead said: “The shortlist is extremely strong this year, with nominees from every corner of Scotland. There is a huge surge in nominations for new bands which goes to show that Scotland is forever churning out new and exciting talent. I think this year’s main event will be one not to miss – it’s our sixth birthday, so we’ve got a few surprises and crowd-pleasers up our sleeves. Stay tuned.”
