What is Beyond Asbury? Here's the scoop...

By Gary Wien


Sent from the Asbury Music Awards Committee

When the Asbury Music Awards first started back in 1993, the goal was to acknowledge local artists and highlight the importance of the local music scene. The original idea was to keep the spotlight on new and emerging artists with the idea that artists who have been part of the awards for five or more years would be moving on to bigger things. This process would enable new artists to emerge and keep the scene as vibrant as ever. Beyond Asbury is a new segment of the Asbury Music Awards where we pay respect to artists that find themselves beyond the local area; they may be artists who have already achieved great success in the Asbury Music Awards and are no longer nominees or artists who find themselves playing more shows out of state or around the world rather than in local clubs.

We are honored to say that these artists launched their careers as part of the local music scene and will always remain linked to Asbury Park, and we are proud to acknowledge them here.
