Coming April 19th (Record Store Day)…
The 2013 Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards ballot hit the streets yesterday. I’m thrilled to see “Clint Niosi and the Unaccountable” nominated for Best Acoustic/Folk. Everyone in the Unaccountable (Claire Hecko , Aaron Bartz, Tommy Garcia and Matt Hansen) deserves an award…for being great, and for putting up with me at the very least
I’m also excited to see James Talambas nominated for best producer. Either of these nominations would have been great news…but to top it all off “For Pleasure and Spite” is up for Album of the Year! Thanks in no small part to James’ stellar production, Devon Nowlin’s amazing artwork and the amazing performances of Tamara Cauble Brown, Petra Kelly, Austin Green, Benjamin Marrow, Boyd Dixon, Rachel Shirk, Ashley Myrick, Heather Test, and Katie Dunlap. I couldn’t be more proud of “For Pleasure and Spite”, and regardless of the outcome of the ballot…I already feel like we’ve won.
