The 2014 RFT Music Awards Nominees



It is that time of the year again! Each year, we at RFT Music HQ present the RFT Music Awards, an annual celebration of the best and brightest musical acts St. Louis has to offer. The nominees are chosen by a panel of venue owners/employees, promoters/talent buyers, record store staff, dedicated die-hards and various other musical minds from organizations all over the city -- and then the winners are chosen by you, the readers!

Many of these musicians will appear at the RFT Music Showcase, to be held this year on June 7. Important: If you are one of this year's nominees, please fill out this form by April 30 in order to be sure you are included in our coverage.

The polls will open for voting at the beginning of May. Congratulations to all our nominees!
