American Pixels receives a SAMMY Award!

3 likes

Once a year, in my hometown of Syracuse, an event takes place known as the Syracuse Area Music Awards, honoring the best albums released in the previous year, in a variety of categories. I'm very happy and honored to announce that this year, for the first time ever, they had an electronica category. Considering I created the project in this city, I was nominated for my work on American Pixels.

Last night was the ceremony, which I attended, and wouldn't you know it... I won, and took home the SAMMY!

 

So thanks again to you, the album supporters, for helping this dream not only become a reality, but through this award and recognition I was able to showcase the world of video game remixing, American game music, and more to a whole new audience. On top of that, the event was awesome, and I had a great time. There are a lot of talented people in this town!

And, well, if you feel really compelled to hear my acceptance speech, you can tune in here at 1:15 - https://www.facebook.com/subcatstudios/videos/10155527269158668/. (I made sure to thank my Kickstarter backers!)

Other award recipients are noted here, if you want to check them out: http://www.syracuseareamusic.com/2018-syracuse-area-music-award-recipients/. Incidentally I have a few local friends who also won a SAMMY (including Matt Vacanti of ESP, who played the electric bass solo in "Bernard Electric"), but there are still a lot of folks who I haven't heard that I need to go check out.

Additionally, I'm looking forward to talking about my next project (currently in the works), but it's not quite ready yet. Maybe in a month or two. :)
