On January 18, 2021, Stonedef Records, Inc., announces that The JPF Music Awards (Just Plain Folks) were announced on December 28, 2020 and that Billboard hit singer/songwriter Fawn® won Best Dance Album, Best Dance Song and placed in the runner-up and finalist positions in three other song and album categories.

Due to COVID – 19, the JPF Music Awards were announced on December 28, 2020 online on the JPF Music YouTube channel at 8pm EST. Winners, runner-ups and the top four album finalists and top six song finalists in each category were disclosed within a two hour and eighteen minute program by JPF Music Organization founder Brian Austin Whitney.

There were 4,203 judges from around the world listening to 71,700 album entries and over 230,000 song entries, with a multi-genre mix of music categories, 63 song categories and 75 album categories.  Fawn® won Best Dance Album, “Idiosyncratic” and Best Dance Single, “Small” and won runner-up for Best Holiday Song, “Christmas Time”, the finalist positions for Best Alternative Song, “Over” and Best Holiday Album, “Angels We Have Heard On High.”

Fawn® said: “As a songwriter and independent artist, having this type of recognition is such a blessing. When I learned about the odds of winning or placing in the top five categories, I was blown away. These honors I’ve been given, are from real world listeners and that means a lot to me. I am indebted to Marty Panzer and Pat Pattison for their lyrical mentorship and John Bettis for his encouraging support over the years. I am so grateful an organization Like JPF Music exists. They are a light at the end of a very long, dark tunnel.”

At the online JPF Music Awards, Whitney said: “If you’re a nominee and you don’t show up in the finals tonight, don’t feel bad. It was harder to get a nomination in our awards by the sheer number of entries than it is to get a nomination in the Grammys, so it’s a big achievement.”

If you happen to be in the top six or the top four, I hope that you’ll celebrate! For the first time ever, we have an Honorable Mention category for songs or albums that just missed getting into the top finishers by a single vote or less. 2020 has been rough on everybody and I think this was a great way to have a really positive and upbeat ending to the year. We want to bring as much positive attention as we can to these talents.”
