Been a while since an update, but this is a biggie.

I was nominated in two categories for this year’s squareenixmusic.com game music awards. This alone is a massive honour and to be recognised for my first professional soundtrack in this way is pretty mindblowing. But then it turned out I’d actually come runner up in BOTH categories. This, my website-reading friends, is amazing.

Runner Up Best Score – Independent

Runner Up Outstanding Contribution – Newcomer

I’d like to also point out that the winner for Best Score Independent was Virt, who is freaking amazing, and the winner for Outstanding Contribution was Brian Tyler, composer of Modern Warfare 3 and countless Hollywood movies. To be even considered in that echelon is more than I could ever ask for.

I extend my gratitude to the members of squareenixmusic.com, and everyone who loves game music. Big thanks, of course, to Robert Boyd and Bill Stiernberg of Zeboyd Games, for giving me the chance to live out a childhood dream and score an old school JRPG.

Let’s see what next year brings!
