Last year's Public Choice Award Winner, the Ukrainian hip hop artist Alyona Alyona, is now a member of the jury of the Music Moves Europe Awards for 2022.
“I was an award winner last year and I also won the public choice award," says Alyona Alyona. "It was really exciting for me and I'm really happy that my country Ukraine was a winner last year. I will be a jury member of this edition, which is the tradition for every public choice winner and I'm very excited to be a part of it this year and I'm looking forward to study all 15 nominees and finding the winners of this year.”
Five artists will be selected as winners by an international jury (winning €10,000 each), with one artist winning the Grand Jury Prize (winning €10,000 plus a green touring voucher worth €5,000). All winners will be revealed at the Music Moves Europe Awards ceremony on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at ESNS in Groningen, the Netherlands.
All fifteen nominees are to be invited for a business education day, centred around best practices in the music industry, organised by ESNS and its partners; the live sector (Liveurope, Yourope and Live DMA), the recording industry (IMPALA and Digital Music Europe), the International Music Managers Forum (IMMF) The European Music Exporters Exchange (EMEE).
Coinciding with the news, Denise Chaila also revealed that she has a brand new EP coming out this Friday. Keep an eye on hotpress.com for more details.
My “It’s a Mixtape” EP is coming out this friday the 26th of November. Armour, fire, braggadocio, a very confusing title, maybe some world of warcraft and dancehall references side by side— who knows? You will on friday!
