I just found out that I was nominated for an HMMA (Hollywood Music in Media Award) for my song “Toccata and Fugue” for “Best Classical Song”. This is a song that will be going on my upcoming album (it is my rendition of J.S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor).
I will be competing against the other artists nominated within the Classical genre. The HMMA’s are special because they award musicians such as film composers, game composers, songs featured in commercial work, independent artists and more. There aren’t a lot of venues for this sort of award and so I feel very honored to be a part of it.
The awards show is in November at the Kodak Theater Complex in Hollywood. It will be my first experience getting to walk the red carpet, and do the whole media/tv thing and after parties. It is going to be a lot of fun. I’m just sort of freaking out about what I’m going to wear already. Let the shopping begin!
