Traces of Dawn won the 2019 Indie Music Channel (IMC) Award for the “Best Alternative Artist” for the song “Steady Rest.” This awards event was hosted at the legendary Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, California on April 28, 2019.

Indie Music Channel Awards recognizes independent singers and bands from around the world who have achieved the outstanding accomplishment of receiving terrestrial, satellite, and/or internet radio airplay for their music, in spite of not being signed to a major record label. IMC was created by Christopher Ewing who is an Emmy Award-winning TV host, actor & model. His creation was based on the need to raise support for US-based indie artists and their music.
