2010 Linescratchers Staff Pick
Mayan Fox – Outfoxed

This year, the staff at Linescratchers have chosen Mayan Fox as our 2010 Staff Pick.  We determined that the Staff Pick would go to an exceptional artist or group who was not selected by the voting process, but who ideally exemplify the values and mission of Linescratchers.  Mayan Fox has developed a strong following in Australia, where Mormons are a smaller minority than here in the United States.  They have a unique sound that is an impressive blend of many cultures, and released a well-produced and exciting album in 2010, Outfoxed.  Lastly, they are a very socially conscious band, bringing much-needed attention to important causes such as the issue of modern slavery caused by irresponsible trade.  We hope to see more from Mayan Fox in the future, and you can read about it right here on Linescratchers.

Winners will receive:

  • A free merchandise design by Joseph Mecham, graphic designer
  • The graphics above for use on their website
  • And of course, the bragging rights and the award

Thanks to all who voted and spread the word about Linescratchers and the 2010 Linescratchers Awards!

7 Thoughts on “Winners of the 2010 Linescratchers Awards

  1. There is one fairly major mistake in my CD, if anyone catches it, you win, because nobody has yet.

  2. You spelled it “Cannon in D” instead of “Canon in D.”

  3. Wow! What an honor! Thank you for the nomination and for all the effort put together to involve musicians, fans, listeners and visitors! I am deeply grateful for your work and your passion for music!
    I’m off to share the news!
    keep up the good work!
    Sincerely,
    Australis

  4. You’re welcome man… you deserve it.

  5. I actually did that because my nephews name is Cannon, it was an inside thing.

  6. Hmm… how about an over-reliance on under-the-saddle piezo acoustic pickups?

    Oh no I didn’t

  7. I don’t know what any of that meant. haha
