Grammy Nomination for Best Instrumental Composition for “Koko on the Boulevard”
“Koko on the Boulevard” from “Hudson City Suite” receives a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Composition
I’m thrilled, honored and quite humbled to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition for my piece “Koko on the Boulevard”, track #8 from Hudson City Suite . I was also happy to learn that many of my friends and colleagues from LA and around the country received nominations in composition, large ensemble, arranging, producing, and engineering.
It’s truly inspiring to see how many indie artists are receiving nominations in a business that traditionally has been dominated by record labels (not that there’s anything wrong with record labels), but with social media and independent digital distribution an indie artist can really make some noise. I’m grateful to have received the support of the music community for my project, and I look forward to a tough fight for the win…my competition is fierce!
