Location: Toronto, Ontario
What was the first thing that came to mind when you learned you were nominated? We thought that it was absolutely fantastic because we always knew that Grain of Sand was an excellent album. So it was really, REALLY gratifying for it to be acknowledged with a TIMA nomination!
What will you do if you win? …We’ll squash back a beer!… 🙂
Why should you win? This new Extreme Flute project has great character throughout, and displays a genuine sense of continuity and flow as well. The focus on both Bill’s flute work and Bruce’s writing gives this multi-faceted, Brazilian-oriented collaboration a truly singular “vibe” that never fails to capture the listener’s attention, from the very beginning, to the very end!
If you weren’t nominated, who would you be rooting for? At first, we were so impressed with the competition that we were worried. Now we’re flattered to find ourselves amongst everyone of them! 🙂
Other comments? Thanks so much to Dani Oliva…for ALL the hard work and dedication…for ALL the indies!…
