Now is your chance to recognize the Holy City’s top musicians from the past year: It’s time to weigh in with your picks for the 2021 City Paper Music Awards.

DEADLINE EXTENDED! Nominations are open at until Sept. 28 Oct. 1!

Charleston musicians have not let a global pandemic stifle their creative spirits, they’ve continued to produce creative, catchy tunes across all genres. We’ve even had a cautious return to in-person shows at venues across Charleston that were forced to shutter last year.

The City Paper Music Awards are the Charleston music community’s chance to honor the year’s best local musicians and creative minds across a variety of categories including Artist of the Year, Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, Studio/Producer of the Year and more.

Winners will be announced in our annual Music Awards issue in November.
