2015 Zone Music Reporter Awards

Every year, in May, the annual Zone Music Reporter Awards (ZMR Awards) are held in New Orleans.   Zone Music Reporter is a charting site that reports the radio airplay charts for the New Age and Ambient genres.  My music falls in that category and when I get radio airplay, the broadcasters report those plays, or spins, to Zone Music Reporter.   This is the chart I posted about a couple of weeks ago where I debuted on the chart at #2 for March airplay.  You can read that blog post here.

A Humbling Blog Post

A fellow musician, and fan of mine, wrote a beautiful blog post yesterday, thanking me for the impact I've had on him and his musical journey.  

You can read it on his site HERE.  

I am humbled by his post because I consider myself just another musician who makes music because I love to, and I'm so grateful when people respond to it in such positive ways.  But to know that I've encouraged him to continue following his dream, and provided a reminder to him to not give up... I have to smile knowing that my music, and my career of being a musician, is touching people in ways I cannot imagine.

So to Michael Movestro, I'd like to say Thank You as well... for reminding me that my actions, and my music, makes a difference.  And I am thrilled it made a difference for you.  Never give up.... not on your dreams, not on your goals, not on your hopes.  Push through and make it happen because you never know how you will impact someone else someday.  Pay it forward.  And love every step of the journey.  PS - I think your music is fantastic!  I listened on your site yesterday, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I look forward to hearing more from you.   **Photography by Michele McLaughlin in Cancun

Concert Weekend with Robin Spielberg

My third Valley View Concert of the season was with Robin Spielberg this last Saturday, 4/25/15.  Robin is on tour promoting and showcasing her new album, "Another Time, Another Place" and I was thrilled to have her join me for our April concert.  Robin's music is powerful, expressive, moving, uplifting, and she is the most hysterical storyteller.  She had the audience rolling in the aisles with laughter and I was so inspired by her.  She wowed the crowd, and our improv at the end of the show was one of my favorites I've done.  It just flowed so beautifully.  Thanks Robin for coming out to join me!!!   Interested in coming to a Valley View concert?  The next show is Saturday 5/30 with Chad Lawson.  Come join us!!
