    JoAnna Michelle is getting recognized for her smash “Too Sophisticated” and I am thrilled that the powers that be are recognizing an artist who is delivering a message. Bullying is real and JoAnna hit it head on with an award deserving song.

    Award season is no joke. Awards everywhere but I like it when hard working Indie artists get some love for their efforts. Applause please for all the Indies who are nominated.

    Congratulations to all the artists who put their blood, sweat and tears into their music and now get recognized for it. The music business is a hard business, a cold hearted business at times but those of us who are lucky enough to make our living in it, we love it.
