2013 Orange County Music Awards: Special honors announced

Back in the mid 1990s when I began writing my Orange Pop column for The Orange County Register, a young band known as Lit was among the first area bands I featured in my weekly column. Read on to  see the latest chapter in Lit's ongoing journey...

Lit will be honored at the OCMAs in March 2013
Each year the Orange County Impact Award honors a renowned local band or artist for their exceptional impact on the Orange County music scene. The OC Music Awards Producers and Academy members are pleased to present the 2013 OC Impact honor to local heroes Lit. From the release of Tripping the Light Fantastic in 1997 to The View from the Bottom in 2012, Lit is largely responsible for the mainstream popularity of American alternative rock in the ‘90s and have remained true to their artistic expression ever since. With chart topping hits and worldwide fans, Lit’s impact on artists, the industry and the listeners continues on.

Annually the Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes those individuals who have had a significant presence in the music community, working to further local music whether they are a musician or music industry professional. OC Music Awards is honored to present the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award to Carl St.Clair. In 2013, Music Director Carl St.Clair celebrates his 24th season with Pacific Symphony. During his tenure, St.Clair has become widely recognized for his musically distinguished performances, his commitment to building outstanding educational programs and his innovative approaches to programming.
