Other artists receiving CEA nominations for the first time include Country/Pop singer/songwriter Tana Matz, Hip Hop-tinged Reggae band Elementree Livity Project, Hard Rock crew Moonbow (featuring an ex-Afghan Whig and ex-Survivor cast member), soulful singer/songwriter Austin Livingood, Alternative Pop/Rock band Archer’s Paradox, Soul Rock group Black Pharaoh and ambitious, conceptual songwriter Allan Pray.

Sonic alchemist Dan Miraldi is releasing his new 6-song EP Devil At Our Heels as his 6th album on the 6thof… only kidding… it was released on September 10. During an acclaimed appearance at Roverfest in July, nearly 10,000 people were entertained by Miraldi and his band’s powerful performance which conjured the souls of rock, Americana, and power pop, past and present.
