NARM will hang out their prestigious Independent Spirit Award at the Music Biz 2012 convention this coming May. This year, the award goes to none other than Brett Gurewitz.
"Brett personifies the independent spirit, inspiring countless punk and indie bands through his work in Bad Religion and helping many of them reach their full potential at Epitaph Records, including The Offspring, Rancid, and NOFX," said Jim Donio, President of NARM. "His creative entrepreneurship and commitment to thinking outside the box make him a strong player in today's music industry. We look forward to seeing what he does next."
