Hello there Richard! What a night this has been! All of my nominations for the "BIG 3" came away as the winners! WHITHERWARD for BEST BAND, FRANCESCA for BEST FEMALE ARTIST, and you for BEST MALE ARTIST! You are so deserving and I could not be more thrilled how things unfolded! I also nominated you for your win for WATER FROM A STONE in the CLASSIC AND PROGRESSIVE ROCK category. What thrills me about that, is that since I was a teen, that was always my favorite music genre. You probably know that THE MOODY BLUES finally made the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and will be inducted this spring. So sad that Ray Thomas died just 11 days ago, but happy he knew they finally made it. But this night belongs to you and the IMP artists! Early on you became one of my faves, not just because of your songs, but because of how kind and supportive you were to me and my station, i.e. your Pipeline post about it. 7 of my station artists won 15 of 16 GK's for which I nominated them, and 19 of the 26 overall. That blows my mind and makes me so happy! I need to start a new station and have several of your incredible songs in it. God bless you sir, and continued success to you! Mike

Hi Mate (Richard)
Kind of you to add Epitaph to your station, it was written for my Mother in Law when she was passingBut there are no vocals just a Maton Concert steel string classical guitar an Ebo and Bass (Fender Fretless) and a few effects. I am healing well and hope to be around for a while yet. Best of wishes to your family from mine (still love "Silverwood" btw.)
your Bud Rob

Love your song 'So Far So Good'. Pretty melody, pleasing vocals, and a simple, heartfelt lyric. I especially like the image of the sun rising and falling on her shoulders like a shawl. Very nice indeed.
Thank you too for your absolutely lovely lyrics-related comment on my Artist's Page. It was unexpected, and very much appreciated. :)
