We are really pleased that our new album, Living By The Minute, cracked the Top 100 of the Americana Music Association (AMA) Americana Terrestrial Radio Chart this week, climbing to #98 in the album’s 7th week of radio play. Plus, we’re in the top 18% of albums being currently spun on the Americana Terrestrial Radio Chart. On the AMA Americana Internet Radio Chart, we jumped to #85 and are in the top 17% of albums being spun on internet Americana radio. The tracks “Let It Out” and “A Man Who Believes His Own Lies” are the most spun singles from the album, so far.
We have to give a special thanks to our friends in Goshen, Indiana at 91.1FM The Globe – where Josh Hoyer and the Shadowboxers are #4 on their playlist and tied for #3 in spins last week!
Music from Living By The Minute is now being spun on Americana radio stations in Minneapolis, Washington, St. Louis, Columbia, Colorado, Nevada, California, North Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut, Michigan, Maine, Tennessee, New York, Alabama, and Florida, as well as several countries in Europe.
Last night was a great night for the band! Josh Hoyer and the Shadowboxers won Best R&B/Soul Artist and Album of the Year for our debut album, Josh Hoyer and the Shadowboxers, at the 2015 Omaha Entertainment Awards held at the downtown Omaha Hilton hotel.
Past winners of the OEA Album of the Year award include Bright Eyes, Cursive, Matt Whipkey, Icky Blossoms, and other great Nebraska artists. We’re honored to be included in this group!
The Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards (OEAA) recognizes some of the most talented artists and entertainers in the Omaha area. Voting for the awards is separated into three genres: Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Live Music. The show features live performances from current OEAA nominees and announces the winners in each of the 45 OEAA categories.
Our friends at Blues Blast Magazine just released their February issue featuring Josh Hoyer on the cover, an in-depth interview with Josh, and a really great review of our new album, Living By The Minute.
“It’s not old-school Memphis, Detroit or Chicago, but modern soul blues for modern times. Hoyer delivers on all counts: Fresh tunes, solid rhythms and a message worthy of being heard.” – Marty Gunther, Blues Blast Magazine
