Congrats Switchfoot! For the second year in a row, the guys have picked up the “Artist of the Year” award at the San Diego Music Awards. They were also nominated for “Song of the Year”, but lost out to Delta Spirit. (A FANTASTIC indie band – be sure to check them out!)
Delta Spirit, which was formed here in 2005 and since relocated to Long Beach, also won for Song of the Year (for “California”), a category that included such high-profile nominees as Mraz, blink-182, the Grammy Award-winning Switchfoot, and leading Christian rap-metal band P.O.D., one of seven acts that to perform during the awards fete.
Delta Spirit, which is on tour, was not present to accept its awards. Neither was Switchfoot, which won the Artist of the Year award for the second consecutive year.
Congrats on another well deserved honor Switchfoot!
