I’m happy to announce that my song, In A Town, was nominated for best alternative song in the 2017 JPF Music Awards. The song deals with an idyllic, magical town where you acquire all the material successes you’ve ever desired, but are still left somehow unsatisfied. The words also touch on the particular emptiness in the ones and zeros of the digital blizzard we now find ourselves in. The JPF Awards will be held in Los Angeles on August 5th. From the JPF Website:
The Just Plain Folks Music Awards were started in 1999 as a simple way to recognize the best music submitted by members. JPF Founder Brian Austin Whitney felt the music made by the “other 98%” of the music world often ignored by the mainstream televised music awards shows deserved its own recognition. The judging criteria is based around one basic concept: Does the music move you? This one encompassing criteria has since been adopted across much of the mainstream music industry to measure the very best quality of the best music being made today. Once again, we’ve completed this years quest to find the music that moves us most and recognize it with admiration, fairness and dignity (and a cool JPF Awards trophy).
