Lots of people have been asking how I am, where I am and what I'm up to, so I decided a little update was in order!

I was supposed to have flown back to the US today, but it seems people now suddenly realise I am actually leaving and so now they all of a sudden start doing what I wished they'd have done 3 years ago.

For a while now I've been whoring myself off to pretty much every recording company available, and only now are there 2 companies responding (they're actually fighting over me!)

So Deutsche Gramophone offers me the world, Harmonia Mundi offers the universe and now I am stuck with two companies upstaging each other.

I've decided to stick around for just a few more days, because, if I play my cards right, I could move back to the US and actually get payed nicely for doing what I love!

I will keep you all updated

I wish I had that problem! Just don't let it drag on too long or both companies might decide it's not worth it! (They'd be wrong, of course, but try telling executives that!)

Congratulations. Hope it all turns out perfectly.

I know....I have postponed my trip to next Thursday, I'll have a decision ready for them by then, but they are not making it easy for me...Harmonia Mundi is a label I love because they aren't afraid to record the bizarre and unusual stuff, but DG can give me a worldwide career...

Wow, both labels are amazing, DG is of course legendary.
What a nice quandry to be in :) I guess you just have to walk away sometimes to actually make things work out.
Best of luck to you however you decide!

Congrats!!! Meanwhile, others of us sit unnoticed on MySpace and can't even get a gig (or 1,000 friends). LMAO

Bravo Jason. I'll be interested in hearing which one of them is most interested in you as an artist as well as a commodity. Here's to the end of your whoring :-) Congratulations!!

Wow, both Deutsche Grammophone and Harmonia Mundi?! For some reason though, personally, I would think you would suit Harmonia Mundi better....but it's just my personal hunch.
