Quotes :
Mike Batt - Chairman, Dramatico "I've always been happy that my music is released on an independent label, - and to have IMPALA recognise our work is truly thrilling. I'd also like to say that the small team at Dramatico have been brilliant in helping me achieve this unexpected but very much appreciated international success".
 
Luke Concannon, Nizlopi "It's great to have won this award from Impala. The right to play, sing and say what we want, and to put our music out ourselves is very important to us. May many more successes come from this independent scene!"
 
Alison Wenham, Chairman and Chief Executive, AIM "The IMPALA Awards are to recognise, and to thank the artists and the record companies who produce such great music. They help to spread the word across Europe, and promote the grass roots of the indie sector, as well as the international stars independent companies regularly produce."
 
Emil Joergensen, Chairman, DUP, Danish Independent Record Labels: "Achieving an Impala award can be the first step towards increased interest from colleagues in the music business, hopefully inspiring new collaboration across the European borders. It's great that local artists from a small country like Denmark can gain more publicity through registering for an Impala award."
