GIAN'S 2004 MUSE'S MUSE AWARDS
By Gian F - 12/07/2004 - 12:52 PM EST

ABOUT THE MUSE'S MUSE AWARDS

I created the Muse's Muse Awards to honor and celebrate the superior talent and extraordinary accomplishments of the music artists that I have reviewed throughout the year. The Muse's Muse Awards do not reflect, nor do they include, the contributions of other reviewers on the site. They are solely my brainchild, and my labor of love. That's why they are called Gian's Muse's Muse Awards.

Because Muse’s Muse is the ultimate songwriting resource and community, it is only appropriate that songwriters (and the songs they write) receive special recognition on this website. But this year, and for years to come, I will also acknowledge achievements in the areas that are intertwined with songwriting, such as musicianship and production skill.

In addition, the Muse’s Muse Awards will aid music and entertainment industry professionals in their search for quality songs and artists who are truly prepared, and deserving of commercial opportunities.

THE SELECTION PROCESS

I did not use a complicated process like the American Music Awards, or some political voting strategy like The Grammy’s to determine who would receive a Muse’s Muse Award. Aside from my “commercial” criteria requirement, I merely used 20 years of music industry experience and the abyss of passion that I have for good music to select the recipients. Please note, that while I refer to the recipients and the submissions as the “best,” the word best is used in the context of how they compared to the competing artists/songs reviewed in their respective categories, and therefore, warranted the selection.

With no further delay, it is my pleasure to present the recipients of Gian's 2004 Muse's Muse Awards...
