My new single steadily climbs to No.18 and ranks 2nd in audience reach this week! A big Thank You goes to US radio.

I could not have done this without Mindi Abair (sax), Bruce Nazarian (guitar), Jason Gorov (radio promo), and Lena Ringstad (web design & pics)

Also a big shout out to all the fans who call the stations to request my tune 🙂

The Grammys ©

I’m very happy to announce that I’ve been accepted as a full voting member of the Recording Academy today. The Grammy show is just a small part of what they do. The Recording Academy is very active behind the scenes in Washington D.C., making sure that musicians’ rights are properly represented on the hill. Music education is also a pillar of the foundation and that is where I will be most active in the future.

A big “thank you” to my good friend Mindi Abair for making the introduction to the Academy!

Today the single “Dance With You” got its first spin in the UK from radio personality Richard Edwards on GloucesterFM. His show is called SmoothGrooves. Big Rich endorsed the single BIG TIME. Thanks!
