This prestigious award will be handed out at the upcoming IndieHeaven CIA Summit2008 conference March 29, 2008.

With so much upheaval in the music industry as of late, it seems that "indies" are creating their own momentum. Indieheaven founder and CIA Summit Director Keith Mohr has established a webspace for indies to grow and learn together. Working diligently behind the scenes for the past 10 years perfecting his vision of bringing these artists together for the purpose of "true" networking instead of just a running "friendslist". He encourages them to "go deep" as well as wide. "I don't think i've ever seen anything like it before." quotes yshwa4life, "Keith is quite a guy, he really cares about my mission and the friendships I'm making are sure to last a lifetime." "It's all about real relationships with real people."

yshwa4life has an EP titled "In the Beginning" available only at indieheaven. It was mixed in a studio in Schenectady, NY and mastered by Mohr in Tennesee. He has been in "creation mode" as he calls it, for a couple of years with about 30 songs to date but is just now releasing his first official project and is pretty excited about it.

"I believe that momentum breeds momentum (a Keithism) and it seems to be gaining speed." "I so much appreciate Keith and everybody over there on "the boards".

Mr Mohr also states, "It's important to recognize and applaud the efforts made in recent years by artists who are independent. By providing them the recognition they have earned, we hope to increase their platform and awareness. There are many independent artists who are doing an incredible job with their music and most importantly their mission. We look forward to the awards being a part of our annual artist's conference."
