The Pandemic closed down the Detroit Music Awards ceremony this year but they still announced who the winners were. It was really cool that the award committee put together an online awards ceremony that included some really top notch international musicians announcing the awards. There were people such as Sting and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers announcing. My album Soul and Courage won Outstanding Blues Recording and it was introduced by Emilio Castillo from the famous R&B Horn band Tower of Power! He apparently has Detroit roots too! It was a complete honor to receive this award. A big special thanks to Gary Graff and everyone else on the DMA committee for putting that all together! Also to Max Bauhof for producing and playing drums on the album. To Adam Cox for mixing it with us. And of course a big thanks to Chuck Bartels for playing bass and Evan Mercer for playing keys on the album!
