Patrice and Take 6 win 2020 Independent Music Award


Patrice Jégou, featuring Take 6, wins the 2020 Independent Music Award for Best A Cappella Song for “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams.”

Patrice Jégou, who released her critically acclaimed second album last year, If It Ain’t Love, won in the 18th Independent Music Award’s (IMA) Best A Cappella song category with “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams,” featuring 10-time Grammy Award winning a cappella group Take 6. Arranged by Take 6’s Mark Kibble, “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams”- written in 1931 – sounds totally modern. With Patrice’s warm lead vocal, and Take 6’s famous layered sounds, it’s easy to see how “Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams” appealed to the judges.

The winning projects were selected by influential judging panelists including: Tom Waits & Kathleen Brennan, Robert Smith, Ziggy Marley, KT Tunstall, Dee Snider, Drowning Pool, Roberta Flack, Jaci Velasquez, Coolio, Joshua Bell, Beth Gibbons, Joe Satriani and many more indie creatives, top recording artists, and industry influencers. The IMAs annual show and accompanying Indie Music Konference originally scheduled as 3-day June event in New York City, were cancelled as a result of the global pandemic. This year’s awards were announced on April 28, 2020.

“This is such a thrill for me, and I’m so grateful to have worked with Take 6. As an independent artist, it means a lot to me to win this award! I’m very grateful.” —Patrice Jégou
