Austin Chronicle and SXSW present The 37th Annual Austin Music Awards Many Sounds · One City proceeds benefit the SIMS Foundation and HAAM

The Austin Chronicle, SXSW and Louis Black Productions are proud to present the 37th Annual Austin Music Awards on Wednesday, February 27, 2019.

For 36 years, this institution has celebrated the Austin musicianship that the city is known for the world over. This year’s roster follows suit, featuring genre-spanning talent that includes buzzworthy Austin-based psychedelic soul outfit BLACK PUMAS; singer-songwriter JAKOB DYLAN, most known for his years as frontman of rock band The Wallflowers; JOHN DOE, co-founder of LA punk band X, an exploration of rock, punk, country and folk; TOMAR WILLIAMS from soul group Tomar & the FC’s; rockabilly and country music artist ROSIE FLORES; the foremost provocateur of tango in Austin, GLOVER GILL, of Glovertango; three-time Austin Music Hall of Fame inductee as well as former member of the True Believers with Alejandro Escovedo, JON DEE GRAHAM; tango orchestra comprised of various Austin-based musicians, TOSCA; Austin’s own ever-vibrant soul, funk, blues and jazz outfit THE PETERSON BROTHERS; India-born, Austin-based rapper ABHI THE NOMAD, who released single "FLUSH" at the start of the new year; and the renowned DJ MEL, widely known as “Obama’s DJ” after performing the 57th Presidential Inauguration.

This year, homage will be paid to the late MC Overlord, known as Austin’s hip-hop pioneer. Donnell Robinson, aka MC Overlord, was the recipient of nine Austin Music Awards throughout his career and passed away in 2018 at age 49. His legacy will be honored at this year’s event via a special tribute by SMACKOLA and DJ CRASH of Dirty Wormz, TEE DOUBLE, TRAYGOD THA MC, BAVU BLAKES of Hip-Hop Hump Day, the MC Overlord Collective, and GROOVELINE HORNS.

CHARLIE SEXTON returns as Music Director with House Band members: MICHAEL RAMOS, JOHN MICHAEL SCHOEPF, RICKY RAY JACKSON and RAMY ANTOUN.

The Townes Van Zandt Songwriter Award is to be presented by BRITT DANIEL to singer-songwriter ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, and the Margaret Moser Women in Music Award to be presented by STEVE WERTHEIMER to DIANNE SCOTT, long-time musician champion.

Austin’s international music reputation has been forged by the best artists, bands, and industry masterminds. Four decades after its fruition, the Austin Music Awards continues to honor them as well as the local music community that have brought them to the forefront. This history-making event recognizes Austin’s outstanding live music achievements of the previous year as voted on by the Austin Chronicle readers in the annual Austin Chronicle Music Poll.

As always, stay tuned for a special guest to be announced day of show!
