And the Froggy Goes to…

As 2010 comes to a close, naturally, we tend to reflect on the year that was…and what a year it’s been here at Froglix!  We’ve made a number of technical upgrades and changes, incorporated more video content into our postings and last (but certainly not least) we’ve welcomed our good friend Thurdeen to the Froglix fold as our newest writer.  Further, and most importantly, we have been introduced to a bevy of talented musicians from around the world all striving for the same goal…to have their voices and their music heard by a global audience.  We consider it an honour to have been able to play even a small part in making that happen.  It has truly been a tremendous year in indie music and we are looking forward to what we are sure will be an incredible 2011 with great anticipation.  However, before we jump ahead, we would be remiss if we were not to take one more look back at the year that was and offer up our own “best of.”

Ladies and gentlemen, it is a distinct honour, nay a privilege, to present the First Annual Froglix Music Awards!  Winners of this year’s “Froggy” awards have been selected by the listeners and readers with input for DMitch, Thurdeen and myself, of course.  With a year filled with so much excellent music it was indeed difficult to narrow it down…but with no more gilding the lily or anymore adieu I give the winners!

    Thank you ALL at Froglix – We, in camp Lemming, are THRILLED beyond words to be held in such high esteem and to find ourselves honored alongside some of the best bands ANYWHERE! As a listener to Froglix, I have grown to love Small City Calling, Killer Godzilla, The Skylife and many others. “Kiss You” by 28-200 has become one of my absolute favorite songs. When I think of all of the great bands and songs on Froglix, I am truly humbled indeed. Congratulations to our fellow honorees, to ALL of the great artists who make Froglix the awesome indie source that it is and to my fellow Lemmings. Continued success to to all and to Froglix in 2011. As for the Treading Lemmings, you can color us Buoyant!
    Peace,
    Quinn
