My how time flies-our summer camp was a great success and produced a pretty cool tune by the participants. I spent Saturday morning at the Rodeo City Music Hall in Mesquite-a great venue for up and coming singers and even for some already there singers. It is under new ownership, and they are auditioning everyone that wants to perform or has in the past. They have added a live band, to put them on par with the other Showcase venues in town. Should be a great new beginning. I was judging the auditions, and saw some very good singers. And it's on the east side, as is JO-MUSIK.
I haven't written any news since we went to Atlanta for the Dove awards. We (OPEN HEART MUSICALS) did not win, but the nomination was quite an honor, and it was a great show. There is a new musical in the works-we will soon be hunting for talent to do the CD. Several clients have been having some good movement on their tunes-Roger Russell and Andrew Boyer have had half a dozen tunes chart or get radio play in several places-even England. Russell Willard is in for a new EP.
I have been doing a lot of work with various members of Dallas Songwriters-lots of good stuff coming out of there! In this self promoting Indie World, It makes since to have some professional help somewhere along the production line. I am going to make an effort to go on Facebook more than once a month, to help promote all the great talent I get to see and work with. And maybe get out the news every month! Keep an eye on the new music folder on the music page of this website.
