Greek-Australian rock goddess Orianthi has been nominated for Best Rock Guitarist of 2013 by Guitar World magazine. The publication also nominated her for Favorite Guitar World Cover (she appeared on the front page of their April 2013 issue).
The 28-year-old musician, who released her third studio album Heaven in This Hell earlier this year, is up against Eric Clapton, Mark Tremonti, Jerry Cantrell and Josh Homme in the popular guitar magazine’s Best Rock Guitarist category. She’s competing with various bands and musicians for Favorite Guitar World Cover, including Led Zeppelin, The Who, Stevie Rae Vaughan, Nirvana and Black Sabbath.
It was also recently announced that Orianthi is the first act to participate in #BeMyBand, which gives aspiring musicians the opportunity to play alongside a headlining artist in a legendary venue. Drummers, guitarists, keyboard players and bassists are asked to submit a short video of their best live performances for a chance to perform with Orianthi onstage in Los Angeles.
