Search
The Industry Source for New Age, World, Ambient, Electronic, Solo Piano, Relaxation, Instrumental and many other genres of Music

The broadcasters have spoken, the votes have been tabulated and now ZoneMusicReporter is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 ZMR Music Awards. Congratulations!
SPECIAL NOTE: A change was made to tie-breaker rules and posted at the start of the award process. This change should have a full year to be publicized but has only been known for a couple of months. Since a year has not passed, for this year only, ties will not be broken. The new rule will take affect starting with next year's awards. The three affected categories will have co-winners this year.
