Shows, Nominations, Scholarships, & prizes!

Hey all,

I hope you're enjoying the fall. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this season. Life has been busy for me. I worked so hard on getting my new album out in August, that by September I'd run out of energy. So I've been spending more time with friends, playing some sports, reading a bit and trying to learn how to relax. I'm glad I decided to wait until next summer to do my tour.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the album release shows, they were fun! I've got a couple more shows coming up in Ottawa - Fri, Oct 19th @ Oliver's Pub and Sat, Nov 3rd @ Babylon Club.

If you haven't picked up a copy of 'In Awe of Simplicity' and would like one, it's available on iTunes or by Credit Card, PayPal, Cheque, Cash

Ontario Independent Music Award Nomination
Nicole Rushton & I are nominated in the Hip-Hop category for an Ontario Independent Music Award with our track 'Canada Dry.' It's the inaugural year for the awards, and I don't recognize many names, so the nomination won't be going to my head. It's still flattering though.

Scholarship Opportunity
Brockway Entertainment has teamed up with Fillmore Street Brewery (home of Nelly's energy drink, Pimp Juice) to help make their scholarship available to Canadian students. Awards are $1750, $500, $250 and more.
For more details, read the press release: in PDF or as MS Document.

Deadline is March 3rd, 2008.

Hip-Hop Radio Show List Updated
Thanks to input from a few hundred radio show hosts, music directors and program directors, I've updated my online hip-hop radio show list with new fall programming. The list contains more than 500 radio shows, which are sorted two ways:

     1. By day & time -
     2. By region -

Contests & prizes
I've got a nice assortment of CDs from Canadian artists to give away. Ira Lee's is by far my favourite and I've got a couple copies here.
