GiGhive Independent Artists presents
IAN Music Arts Awards

IANMA logo

GiGhive proudly presents its first annual Independent Artist Network for the Music Arts (IANMA) Awards. The IANMA Awards is unique in that while it honors excellence in all areas of the Music Arts, its primary focus is highlighting and stressing the importance of the music artist brand and the Music Categories that establish the foundation for the Arts.

It is the intention of Gighive and it's IANMA awards platform: to reverence excellence in the independent music arts and showcase them annually - ideally helping to cultivate more original, premium art of a higher standard and purpose.

The IANMA will not only garner artist awareness, but bring much needed attention to these independent music brands that typically fly under the mainstream media radar.

Our aim: to honor excellence in all areas of the Music Arts and to cultivate a higher standard, purpose and awareness of the independent music brand.

Artist brands are the doorways into the music soul
