Grammy Awards Voting Season has begun: First Round Deadline Approaches

With the creation of my own record label, Sheridan Music Studio, this is my first time ever with my recorded CD's entered in the Grammy's, and you cannot imagine how excited I am to be a part of it. Not just to be entered in it, but to be a voting member of the NARAS. ( NAtional Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences). I have spent a great deal of time listening and evaluating submissions for the Grammy Awards, and I am simply humbled by how many phenomenal musicians there are that exist on this planet! SO much great music, but so little time!
Music exists in a temporal sphere- so it requires the luxury of time. Time to learn and to practice, time to listen and enjoy, and time to create and promote more music!
Plus, the time and responsbility to pass on the legacy that we inherit when we choose to become professional musicians!
It is a most rewarding, if competitive and highly challenging career to pursue, but I encourage all who love music to follow their heart! 
There is nothing better in this world than making music and sharing it with others! 
Best of luck to all in the 56th Grammy Awards! It would be a dream come true to get a nomination, but only time will tell- and the suspense is already killing me!

    The Rhapsody in Blue is one of my favorites. I saw the movie about him when I was a teenager, and will never forget. Thanks Mel
