Nominations are open for new Sound Music Awards celebrating Liverpool’s music scene
Nominations are now open for a new music awards ceremony, due to take place in the city center later this year.
Local independent music company Sound Music Group kicked off their new project on February 10 with a preview event. Taking place in November 2022, the prestigious Sound Music Awards aim to celebrate Liverpool’s music scene and industry efforts over the past 12 months.
Nominations are now open, and the results will be revealed at a swanky new ceremony, called the Sound Music Awards, at a yet to be announced downtown location. The live event will feature a number of acts and performances from local artists, while offering the city’s rising stars the opportunity to step into the spotlight.

Since the awards launched, there have been over 2,000 nominations, including for established and emerging artists like Liverpool favorites Red Rum Club, Jamie Webster, RATS, Bronnie and many more. Audience members can now name their favorites from the past 12 months in each of its 11 award categories.
From the nominations, there will be a compilation of shortlists for each category. The public will then vote for each category, which will decide the winners later this year. As an organization, the Sound Music Awards will have no say in who is nominated or who wins, ensuring the project remains one for the people of the city.
Event director Tom Woolman said: “Over the past month we have secured four artists from across the Liverpool music scene to perform live at our awards ceremony on Thursday 3rd November. Our new location will be announced very soon.
“The Sound Music Awards present more than an awards ceremony, we recognize and build an inclusive community of diligent musicians and music professionals.”
