NAIRA is the North-American Academy of Independent Recording Artists; our goal is to acknowledge excellence in independently produced music from the USA and Canada.
A project 4 years in the making NAIRA is rapidly becoming the indie music world's answer to NARAS.
The debut issue of NAIRA's online magazine ( a high-res production in Adobe PDF format) will be available online in December 2005.
It will feature in depth articles and exclusive interviews with indie artists:
Glass Hammer (cover story article, and interview )
Neil Zaza (article and interview) www.neilzaza.com
Loreena McKennit (article and indie label profile) www.quinlanroad.com
Natalie Brown (artist spotlight) www.natalie-brown.com
Emily Richards (artist spotlight) www.emilyrichards.com
Glass Hammer fans on their e-mailing list will be able to obtain copies of the issue for free!
(so sign up!- it will be at least a 5 page article maybe 7 or 8 once the interview is added)
Glass Hammer fans may also wish to sign up for a NAIRA fan membership so they can vote for Glass Hammer in the first annual NAIRA awards, which will be given out in September of 2006.
Fan members can also nominate Glass Hammer albums for NAIRA's popular choice awards for Album of the Year and Artist of the Year
