Local band Stranded is also receiving some highly deserved recognition. Stranded’s recent song, “Angel’s Bridge” is a finalist in the 2021 New Mexico Music Awards under the Modern Rock category. The organization plans to announce the winners on May 23. As Carlsbad continues to re-open, we look forward to seeing Stranded and other local bands back in concert.
Congratulations to band members Mike Ybarra, Raul Ortega, Jason Vigil and Dario Velasquez. The song is about losing a loved one, but being hopeful about seeing them again. For a list of all nominations, please visit http://www.newmexicomusicawards.com/2021-nm-music-awards-finalists/
