I want to give you all my heartfelt thanks for honoring us with two Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Vocals and Songwriter, along with an additional one for a recording I worked on with the Orbitsuns & Vin Dombroski - it was beyond generous of them to recognize me in their project.
It was great to be present this year and to see so many amazing Detroit based musicians we haven't seen in some time. I'm thankful everyday to be surrounded by incredibly talented people that are in our lives and those that have performed with us. I was glad to be there and to be a part of a community as often I begin to feel ungrounded as we travel.
Spending time with fellow musicians at home, and to be recognized, is a reminder that I have much to be thankful for, including a growing family and so many I feel at home with. Home is where the heart is! Right now, it is in Detroit, MI :D
Congratulations to all the winners and much recognition to all the people that go without receiving accolades for their hard work, touring, and talent as well as the incredible musicians that hold down day jobs in addition to their music careers and hustle day after day. It may seem like your hard work and dedication goes without notice....You have my admiration.
