Hamilton Awards 2012

First I Congratulate all the Winners and Recipients of Special Awards in this year’s Hamilton Music Awards. I am honoured to have been among them.

J.P. Gauthier, Connie Stefanson and their legion of workers and volunteers were stellar and professional at all times, and loads of fun. Great Going, folks! The treatment we all received – the perks, the products, the pastries, the party favours… well, all the p’s were in place.

I wish to say how inclusive this weekend felt for MJ and me! We were humbled by the welcome and respect you showed us. It was a remarkable weekend filled with fun, friendliness and fellowship. Right On!

Thanks to the judges in the Studio Engineer of the Year category for recognizing the recent work I’ve done.

See you all throughout the new year, I hope!
