In celebration, the show has announced a new recording initiative dubbed the 617 Sessions. Starting in May, 617 Sessions will give 10 local artists the opportunity to record their music in a professional studio.
“The goal with 617 Sessions is simple: Help artists make music,” says Boston Music Awards owner Paul Armstrong. “Beginning in May, we will provide 10 artists with an entire day of studio time, including engineers and studio assistants. Successfully chosen artists will also be given the chance to open the 2017 awards.”
