Rick Jamison from On Songwriting, a website dedicated to the art and craft of…songwriting, recently interviewed Americana singer/songwriter, Jiggley Jones. Here is an excerpt from that interview:
Rick: You were recently nominated for Songwriter of the Year and Music Video of the Year (“Baby Blue”) by the International Music and Entertainment Association (IMEA). Very cool. What do you think are some of the most important milestones that led to these nominations?
Jiggley:Well, I think I would give my manager Michael Stover most of the credit for bringing the attention to me as an artist. That said, the two nominations are separate from each other in the sense that one recognizes my abilities as an artist, while the other is more specific. The video itself has garnered more then 140,000 views on YouTube so far and that’s an important way to be judged these days. The songwriter nomination has got me all giddy inside because the milestone in that case would have to be recognition by someone in the industry. The perfect way to get me excited is to compliment my songwriting, because that to me is what it’s all about.
