I am very excited to tell you that Joanne Lurgio, NOTHING REMAINS THE SAME has just been nominated for Album of the Year, 2010 Motif Music Awards! You already know, but i'll say it again ... Produced by the most talented Mike Dunbar at Rick Ott's Stringhouse Studio in Nashville, TN!
I am so proud of this project!! If you like.. I would really appreciate your votes!! I am nominated for Best Female Vocalist as well!
VOTE JOANNE LURGIO: In the "Americana" Category - Album of the Year - Nothing Remains the Same and BEST FEMALE VOCALIST .. whoo-hoo! All you need is a valid email address to vote : )
Thank you .. All the Best Joanne
hey .. and what the heck ... Track 5, an album favorite- Stone Walls, written by Three Tall Pines (my son's band) .. Three Tall Pines has been nominated for Best Bluegrass Band ( just a proud mama doing her thing )
I attempted to go to Motif Mag to cast my vote for you but immediately received a warning from my security software. Seems that Motif wanted to "plant seed" into my Laptop. Being the cautious type, I declined. Sorry.
At any rate, I am so proud of you and hope your album "Nothing Remains the Same" wins all kinds of awards for you, Mike and the studio there in Nashville. Most of all, I hope your income from all this effort exceeds your wildest dreams. Congratulations and please keep us posted.
Ya gets MY Vote, R.I.R. (That's short for "Rhode Island Red"..heh!)
You & Magic Mike have created a FINE, Dazzlin' CD that deserves to be a Million-Seller.
My Fave Tracks, so-far: "Drink It In"...(Which I DO..doin' all this Home Reconstruction Stuff lately!) ;-)> "Tremble"...(Lord Have Mercy this is a GOOD'N'!!!!!!!!) "My Heart Has a Crazy Mind of Its Own"...No Album ever ended on a Finer Song, JMO.
Thank you very much Dave ... sorry about the 'seed' .. dont' know exactly what that means, but i can assume it is something one would want to avoid! No worries about the vote.. I much prefer your kind words and support for my music .. THAT is the greatest reward. Thank You for stopping by All the best Joanne
WOW!! Thanks Chad!! I am very PROUD!! This project started right here on JPF with Bobbie's Pineyfest, Mike Dunbar and his Demo Derby ... I was recording demos .. but loved the songs so much I upgraded so I could own the masters .. and then said HEY MIKE!! How about we get the guys together and we make this a full CD project instead!! And the rest is history All the best Joanne
Hey Lynn .. First year for this CD .. Nothing Remains the Same was just released in December 2009!! I KNOW she's a winner!! Would love to have the award to hang on my wall just to show when I am not around to say it!!!
I have some really tough competition! Thank YOU Joanne
Hey there Stan!! Thanks so MUCH! yes R.I.R .. I got that name when we co-wrote a song way back when I really enjoy getting feedback on people's favorite tunes! They vary as much as the songs! Thanks for sharing .. Thanks for your support Big HUGS to YOU!! R.I.R
Very SWEET Tom Thank You!! I have tough competition in BOTH categories! Will have to wait and see .. this is one time I appreciate the "exposure" factor. Just being nominitated brings my music to the attention of people who may not have listened before .. so, it's all good! All the best Joanne
Whew!! I am caught up!! Sorry for the lag in responding! I am recovering from the big floods here in RI.. For the first time in 23 years my home was flooded .. Although I did not lose anythings of value, it is a terrible mess and will need some reconstruction now that I finally got the water out .. My family room washed out.. that is where my computer is located .. so I have had very limited computer use .. I appreciated everyone's kind words and support!! Thank you and much love to all of you! All the best Joanne
yeehaw! once more with feeling! LOL!! Thank YOU HARRIET!!!! Big HUGS to YOU!!! Yes... we did it before ... lets hope we can do it again !!! Thanks for your support! Hope you are enjoying the album All the best Joanne
Lovely work! It's a pleasure to vote for you, and good luck!
*OUCH* about the flooding. I've been there, and it's a MESS. You can get these dehumidifying crystals (I can't remember brand names, but I believe you can find them in camping supplies and boating supply stores) in buckets and just leave 'em out around the house. THEY HELP! Probably a dehumidifier would help, too. The crystals help a lot in places that don't get air circulation as much - cabinets, etc.
Mold...yuck!! Stay dry...

Thank You Brenda! I appreciate you having a listen!!! Thanks for your support!
yeah .. the darn flood.. i will go find me some of those crystals! I'll try anything. right now, i am appealing with fema who denied me a 'grant' stating my damage was not 'disater related' .. UGH!!! nothings easy..but i DO still have a home to live in .. just a messy one .. lol!
