MARLBOROUGH – Marlborough band Circus Trees has been nominated for a Boston Music Award, appearing in the Rock Artist of the Year category alongside nine other nominees.

The Boston Music Awards (BMA) honor artists in a variety of categories each year, with nominations serving as a high honor for those throughout the New England music scene. 

Circus Trees formed in 2018 around sisters Finola, Edmee and Giuliana McCarthy. The trio dropped their debut EP in 2019 and followed up with a full-length album a year later. 

They previously earned BMA nominations in 2019 and 2020

“We’re obviously incredibly happy whenever our music and art is recognized as being something worthy of praise,” wrote Finola in a statement to the Community Advocate. “It’s all we’ve ever wanted, for our music to be taken seriously and to be appreciated and to have it reach the audience that it’s created for.”

“This is our third time in a row being nominated, and as cliche as it is to say it, being nominated really is enough for us,” she continued. “It doesn’t matter about winning, especially at this local level. Everyone is good, everyone is striving for connection and recognition in the community, and everyone supports each other no matter who wins.”

The awards show itself will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 8.
