AWARDS

The consistent high quality of Silver Wave recordings is well documented by the numerous awards our artists have received throughout our history. Starting with the GRAMMY’s, the most widely recognized award in the music industry, we have five GRAMMY Winning recordings out of ten nominations. 

 

The Native American Music Awards (NAMMY) were established in 1997 to honor many categories of Native music. Silver Wave artists have been at the top of the winners list with Joanne Shenandoah winning 10 NAMMY’s over the years, more than any other artist. Robert Mirabal has twice been Artist of the Year, and Mary Youngblood has 5 NAMMY’s, proving Silver Wave artists are truly the best in the genre. In 2007 Joanne Shenandoah was honored with a NAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

The INDIE Awards are presented by the Association For Independent Music (AFIM) and are known as the Grammy’s of independent record labels. Silver Wave has won 5 INDIE awards, along with many nominations, showing our strength as a leader among independent record labels. Here is a select list of these and other awards we have received over the years.
