The Highlights And Winners From The 2018 Boston Music Awards
The House of Blues Boston was brimming with talent last night as the 2018 Boston Music Awards commenced. The evening was chock full of notable moments including local favorite Cousin Stizz being named "Artist of the Year" and "Hip-Hop Artist of the Year." Aubrey Haddard doubled up on the metal with "Singer-Songwriter of the Year" and "Vocalist of the Year." We were thrilled, but not surprised; we knew she was going places after taping her Live at Fraser performance in April.

Bands You Should Know — Paper CitizenClaire Gohst was 18 and living in Singapore when she left school to pursue music full-time. She started out playing the violin and singing with different bands, but it wasn’t long before she made the decision to move to Boston and form the indie rock project Paper Citizen. And her 2016 debut EP, Postcards in Transit, uses deep-seated songwriting to shine a light on the emotion and uncertainty that come with unfamiliar experiences. After moving to a new country to pursue a lifelong dream, Gohst was more than qualified to unpack the sensitive material.

Grand Ideas, Rock Wizards, And The Silent Scorn Of Van Morrison: The Inspiring Dumb Confidence Of Ryan H. WalshJamaica Plain is dreamy in the rain. The gray sky in late summer accentuates the greens and blues of Jamaica Pond. The white and red brick apartments across Jamaicaway loom over the pond with a gentle confidence. Most of them are three story buildings with pretty balconies; shades of indigo and yellow florals pop in the sky. There’s a zesty, fresh taste to the Jamaica Plain air, certainly the purest in all of Boston. It’s unlike any other neighborhood in the city, and it's an idyllic place for a creative.
