This is one of those moments when I get to say, "I told you so!"  Not that I knew Alice Smith would be nominated for a Grammy, even though she just got a nod in the "Best Urban/Alternative" category.  But I did say that she was someone to watch because of her talent and stage presence.  Rather than this being about my gloating, I’m really thrilled that the industry had enough of a clue to recognize someone who’s not so easily categorized.

So, yeah, there may be hope for me to pursue my dream of being an A&R guy after all.  In the meantime, check out my original post on her here.

  • Alice Smith’s Grammy nomination

    Hat tip to Darrell McNeill at the BRC, who passed along the good news that Alice got a Grammy nod. More info at, where I first wrote about her nearly 18 months ago.
