Bring on the Palm Trees, Bring on the Music
Three weeks. Twenty-one days, and I'll be leaving on a jet plane. Off to a warmer climate, though the temperature is really just a nice throw-in. No, the reason for me leaving the great state of New Jersey is to fly to Los Angeles. For the Grammy Awards. Yeah.
I'm going to the Grammy Awards. As I have mentioned several times on Kat's Theory of Music, I am part of Earth Hertz Records, and apparently there are some real nice perks. Getting invited to the Grammy Awards is one hell of a nice perk... don't you think? Yeah.
So on January 24th, I'll be flying into LA, and that night the fun begins with a pre-Grammy party. There will be a lot of people to meet, and at this point I'm still a bit overwhelmed. I'm just a writer of a little blog who somehow fell in with some extremely cool people, and together we have a vision for the record business. I'm not sure what made Robert & Eloa Xeno believe I would be the right fit for their company, and I don't even have the words to describe how happy I am that they did.
All arrangements are made, almost all the shopping is done. I have the dress and even more importantly because I will be on my feet for a very, very long time, I have the shoes. Hopefully the hair and nails will be done the day before, and I am begging Mother Nature to calm her ass down with this winter weather shit.
There will be lots to write about, and I hope to bring you all some sort of play-by-play on what it's really like to be Cinderella at the ball.
Just one last thing. Jumping into this record company adventure was a huge leap of faith, for them and me. I've always tried to listen to what my gut tells me. In this case it told me there was a possibility of a real fun journey, and it was all about music. I felt like I was just taking a new path home. If life opens a door, run through it before someone slams it in your face.
Hey, I'm going to the Grammy Awards. Yeah.
