'GO ALL IN' WINS 2018 'BLUES RECORDING OF THE YEAR'
Sooo...the icing on the cake...or the cherry on top (any dessert-related metaphor will do!) was being awarded the 2018 East Coast Music Award for 'Blues Recording of the Year' for my album Go All In! I was gobsmacked - that's right, I said it - gobsmacked, and entirely taken by surprise when my name was called at the Music and Industry Awards event on Sunday evening, our last night of the conference. In fact, I was left totally without words - something that doesn't much happen for me! In a rare happening, the Blues Recording of the Year category was a TIE this year, and I am proud as a peacock to say that the iconic Matt Minglewood also received an ECMA. Sharing a win with someone as storied and accomplished and darned fantastic as Matt is like an award all it's own!
