This has been a doubly cool week for Greg London, who received a highly coveted Hollywood Music In Media (HMMA) nomination for his previous single “Everything I Own” just as his latest hit “Cool Change” breaks into the Top 5 (with a bullet!) on the FMQB AC40 chart.
Currently enjoying a record setting run at Sammy’s Showroom at Harrah’s Reno with his hit show “ICONMAN,” the master musical impressionist (www.gregorylondon.com) received the HMMA nomination in the Adult Contemporary category for having the highest charting new artist release and highest charting release on an independent label (airplay charts).
The HMMA recognizes and honors the music of visual mediums, the talented individuals responsible for selecting it, and the music of artists, both mainstream and independent, from around the globe. The ceremony will be held on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at the Highlands Nightclub located in the Hollywood & Highland/Kodak Theater complex.
In a recently published Q&A, London said: “Everything I Own’ is a bit of an unsung hero when it comes to songs. David Gates wrote it and had a big hit with Bread. It deserves so much more than to be a hit once. My feeling is that it is one of the very finest songs ever written. I had been thinking about how it should be high up on an Award List somewhere…and then I was told that the song and I are nominees for the best Adult Contemporary song for a Hollywood Music in Media Award.”
“Cool Change” looks to be headed for similar acclaim based on its current airplay success. At #5 with a bullet, the track is in an exclusive circle at the top of the FMQB AC40 chart behind superstars Rob Thomas, Miley Cyrus, Daughtry and Taylor Swift.
This week, London also expanded his already impressive internet reach with a fresh new myspace page (www.myspace.com/gregorylondon). The page connects fans to a number of the singer’s online links, including Twitter, Last.fm, Flickr and imeem, in addition to consumer sites like iTunes and CD Baby.
