Wham!

Well, this was a surprise– Someone nominated me for a Wammie! That’s a “Washington Area Music Award,” in case you were (understandably!) unaware. DC has its own little music awards show every year, and this year, someone nominated Astering for Best Pop Song. I’m not sure if it quite belongs in that category, but I’ll […]
