I recently had the opportunity to go to the 2019 Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Tennessee. Three of my paintings were used as the images for their official poster, guide and merchandise.
For those unfamiliar with the BMA’s, they’re the Blues equivalent of the Grammy’s. There are record label producers, performers, radio and TV folks, a real mix of professionals (and fans) from around the world. I met many who came from as far away as Norway.
Some of the performers that evening were: Shemekia Copeland, Little Steven Van Zant, Monster Mike Welch, Kevin Burt, Eric Gales, Steve Cropper, Joe Lewis Walker, there were too many to list here! The music was so amazing. Everyone there was at the top of their game playing for their peers.
