Floorshime Zipper Boots Hall of Fame

Since this blog was started, the goal has been to find and support artists making great emerging music. In over 700 features, FZB has tried to be an "early adopter," with  emerging bands and artists. Today we induct the first five members into the Floorshime Zipper Boots Hall of Fame, of artists that appeared on the blog before receiving wider recognition. Artists will be added to the Hall of Fame from time to time.
