Tom's Story is Jack Daniel's Future Legends Chosen One

A Chosen One has been crowned at the 2018 Jack Daniel's Indie Music Awards at Whitespace in Makati City last Friday (06/29).

Alongside the Jack Daniel's Future Legends Top 3 Oh, Flamingo! and She's Only Sixteen, post-rock trio Tom's Story took the title of Jack Daniel's Future Legends Chosen One and the Jack Daniel's Future Legends Chosen Indie Music Video award for 'Dream/Catcher,' presented by MTVph. The video features a cameo of the band performing at the Bandwagon Music Market in 2016.

Thank you so much for believing in us, thank you for supporting us and our friends, in our fellow musicians, and most importantly, thank you for believing in your fave local artists, whoever they may be, wherever they may be playing, and whatever art they're creating."

- Tom's Story

The 'Mugatu' act blew away the crowd earlier that evening with a stunning performance with A Spur of the Moment Project labelmates tide/edit and Run Dorothy, as voices of the audience sang along to the instrumental band's live music.

Following a fierce performance by rock act Flying Ipis, singer-producer BP Valenzuela won the Jack Daniel's Future Legends Chosen Indie Maverick award, presented by Esquire Online.

The Squibs were awarded with the title of Future Legends Chosen Indie Rebel by Jack TV.

Jam 88.3 took the stage to present the Jack Daniel's Future Legends Chosen Indie Song to She's Only Sixteen for 'Magic.'

Sandwich frontman Raymund Marasigan presented the award for the Jack Daniel's Future Legends Indie Prod Group as chosen by Bandwagon and awarded the title to Gabi Na Naman Productions, the team behind DAMA: 3D (Johnoy Danao, Ebe Dancel, and Bullet Dumas), Secrets: Aia de Leon, Kitchie Nadal, and Barbie Almalbis, Joey Ayala's Mandiriwa, and most recently, IISA

"Sandwich started our little indie prod nights back in 1998 when local bars refused to book unknown indie bands," Marasigan shares with Bandwagon. "We had SUNDAY GRABE SUNDAY in Mayric’s and a couple of years later-PLAY 4 SERVE in [Saguijo] so we could invite our friends to play with us. I’m thankful that there are a lot more prod groups today catering to different bands and fans. Keep the fire alive folks!"

Past Chosen One alumni Farewell Fair Weather and Mr. Bones and the Boneyard Circus graced the stage ahead of a joint performance by Top 7 acts from Ube, The Squibs, and The Brat Pack.

Soul Adventurers Franco closed the evening as the guest headliner of the awards show.
