Harrison A Hit In Prog
"This year many new faces got votes and finished as winners or runners-up," said Dave Constantin, managing editor of Enter Music Publishing. “Artists like newcomer Arin Ilejay of Avenged Sevenfold, who won ‘Rising Star Of The Year,’ led a field of young drummers who entered the running for the first time.”
A wide range of styles were represented in the hand percussion categories with Karl Perazzo of Santana taking “Percussionist Of The Year.” Umphrey’s McGee percussionist Andy Farag won the “Rising Star” award, and Jesús Diaz captured two awards for “Worldbeat” and “Percussion Clinician Of The Year.”
