holly golightly, gemma ray win at independent music awards

Holly Golightly and Gemma Ray were among the winners of the 9th annual Independent Music Awards, announced today. Dirt Don’t Hurt, Holly’s 2008 album with The Brokeoffs (aka Lawyer Dave), was named Best Americana Album, while Gemma’s excellent Lights Out Zoltar! was crowned Best Eclectic Album (a rather nebulous category, but well done all the same). Among the other women who won were Brody Dalle’s Spinnerette for Best Pop/Rock Album (Spinnerette), Danielia Cotton for Best Live Performance Album (Live Child) and Daisy Chapman for Best Cover Song. Her winning version of Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ can be heard here.

See the full list of winners here. And don’t forget, the new Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs album, Medicine County, is out at the end of March.
