This year, I was once again honored to receive an invitation at the Society of Composers & Lyricists Oscar Reception in West Hollywood, honoring the composers and song writers Nominees of the holy grail of recognition in the entertainment industry: The Oscars. 

The event reunites for a short evening the cream of the cream from the music creative world.  There is so much talent in that room it is often quite overwhelming.  But it is also a great opportunity for me to hang out with the wonderful friends and collaborators, past and future, that I have made over the years I have been in Los Angeles.  This year was quite inspiring as there were a lot of fresh new talent nominated, people who dared to dream.  The event allows us to talk with the nominees and hear there incredible stories and insights on what it took for them to accomplish the work that has lead them to where they are today.

The Society of Composers & Lyricists  is such a wonderful organization run by incredibly dedicated individuals.  We were served champagne, wine and delicious gourmet amuse-bouches.
