Time is coming fast to judge the final top five NARAS on the last ballot so that in 2019 the TV awards will go to the happy winner. Good thing is after talking to the independent artist that have won in the past and I have supported with my votes when they are top in their genera and field winning. Certainly I am proud to see where my votes have definitely helped. This honor to be a Grammy Advocate Member as well as a NARAS voting member is such a heart filling experience for over ten years for me can not compare except to be in the studio myself. IT IS becoming harder for many to be honored with voting abilities as specialized as the NARAS requires but as professionals we know some things never change in this business over the years. Also the membership in the the NARAS is getting more difficult to just pay a fee. It is now possibly due to a lot of internet music being posted everywhere without the knowledge of the system in my opinion of the NARAS top award for music recording in the USA. Hint: IF the song is not distributed by a label in the USA plus a few other facts given to the powers that be working in Santa Monica NARAS committee then it's not going to qualify to be on the ballot in the first place. Amazingly this to a business persons mind opens up a the distribution field of the recording industry for profits and losses. Some day I might have a blog to explain a lot of what I have learned through the years by international experiences and I've been talking often in a one to one with winners of Grammy's. Remember there is a sales effect of product even being NOMINATED (Grammy Effect) and that is for a high percentage of net returns. I know as an artist musician myself with some long years of studio experiences it's actually a process to take off one hat of the creating artists and put on the other hat of the business person who does all the other work as it takes a great deal. Then there is the Labels with the set up distribution network and major marketing team proven to reach success and rewards besides the touring aspect etc. etc. Remember over all... NO ONE knows the key factor but if you talk to contractors building houses looking at the architects drafts there will be a repeating thread on each building from foundations to inspections to final pain jobs. Please for my caring sake for all the arts... Don't listen too much to the "Hot Talkin' Big Shot"s people who tend to want to sell you a bridge somewhere that really ends no where. I know the responsibility I hold is to my lifetime career and all the research helps through validation. Or as a carpenter to measure twice and cut once but start measuring ten times if needed and cut your tracks once but GET THEM MASTERED. Reading that data from research plus other elements are important for reaching your goals in the music recording industry of course... but we as writers online or off ALL KNOW it starts with the creative process of the single song and it can be a great return in $ or a great dry cupboard of famine that maybe frightening. That's when the support of your faith and often any community with proven success will help you with positive pointers the most as I've tried to do and will continue when I am asked. Since I have had many awesome notable mentors in my life I pass my Hornsby Family Music Inheritance forward regarding the inheritable intellectual properties of the arts which is a very VALUABLE asset. May God bless & Happy Holidays to all. Ciao ciao, Nikki

Hi Nikki, thank you for the comment. All is ok here in Ireland! I haven't written any new material at all in so long, it must be at least a year! I felt I wasn't getting anywhere, wasting my time (and money) and just stopped.. I suppose I lost hope abit. Very busy also with other things, new family business!! Wow that's hard. Hope all with you too..I am a catholic yes and the pope was here recently but I didn't get to join in the celebration.. but did watch some of it on TV! It was very exciting! I hope all is good with you in U.S. God Bless Milly
