Vinyl Hampdin BLUE is our second album and a tour-de-force of funk, pop, rock, country, R&B, and jazz-informed sticky goodness! The band is made up of an all-star collection of stellar musicians who have been nominated for Grammys, have been awarded Grammys, and have been nominated and received CCMA awards. With Vinyl Hampdin being described as "the most exciting band anywhere," BLUE is a perfect collection of ear candy that can only be categorized as ALTERNATIVE MUSIC. We invite you to listen to all of these tracks that have been submitted to the Grammys for your consideration.

MANIFEST is the alternative music single from BLUE. An upbeat and super positive treatise on just what is possible when we manifest our best hopes and intentions. "Good things come to those who do!"

INTRO: U-TUBE #1 THE JOURNEY features the leader, trombonist, and composer for Vinyl Hampdin: Steve Wiest. Composed by Wiest, "The Journey" is a programmatic offering that describes Steve's personal journey as an artist and person as
he strives ever onwards and upwards.

I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU is Steve's arrangement featuring the incredible vocalist and heart-and-soul of Vinyl Hampdin: Lisa Dodd. The classic standard made popular by the Flamingos gets an even heavier R&B treatment here with plenty of jazz-informed fixin's.

SHELLEY CARROL'S SOLO
Also featured on "I Only Have Eyes For You" is the stellar tenor sax virtuoso Shelley Carrol. Check out his amazing improvised jazz solo at the 3:07 mark and enjoy!

All of us here at Vinyl Hampdin thank you for your consideration this year.

Good luck to one-and-all!
