The Independent Artist Network for the Music Arts Awards 2013 Online Event In 1958, a group of record executives, alarmed by the explosive success of rock ‘n’ roll – and the threat rock posed to “quality” pop – launched the Grammy Awards. Their aim: to nurture a higher standard of popular taste.

In 2013, GiGhive Independents Artists, alarmed by the explosive success and transition of mainstream entertainment to many online media portals; once havens of the “indie movement” and early adapters – launched the IANMA Awards. Its aim: to honor excellence in all areas of the Music Arts and to cultivate a higher standard, purpose, and awareness of the independent music brand.
