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!
I’m very excited to go to the Philippines with Mindi Abair in February. It’s my first visit to that country. It’s amazing where music will take you!
I was able to send out the single one day ahead of schedule. So come Monday all the Smooth Jazz / Contemporary Jazz radio stations in the US should have my CD. It’s literally out of my hands now and up to the radio program directors to spin the tune. Very exciting times !
