First things first - What are you going to be for Halloween? There's been more than enough scare in the air with this election season so I may stick to my superhero theme and fight evil forces into the night and November...
In good news, the new album "Bria" many of you crowd funded has peaked on the Billboard Charts at #5 on both Top Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums, #8 on Contemporary Jazz as well as #8 on the Jazz Week Charts for 2 weeks in a row! Woohoo!
I'm also excited to share I'm on the Grammy ballot for the first time with this disc, for consideration in the following 5 categories:
Best New Artist
Jazz Vocal Album
Instrumental Composition "Down in the Deep"
Engineered Album - Chris Allen
Producer of the Year - Matt Pierson
What does that mean? I am eligible for a nomination.
