Nominated for a 2014 Blues Blast Music Award!
Just found out that I am nominated for a 2014 Blues Blast Music Award, (“Sean Costello Rising Star Award”). I am very humbled by this and consider it a huge ‘WIN’ just to have been nominated. Even though I am personally nominated for this award I consider this nomination a win for my entire team. I couldn’t do this without them; most notably my band, Bill Ruffino and Robinson Bridgeforth, our publicist Frank Roszak, our booking agent Mario Brox, all the behind the scenes folks that help me stay on course, our friends, fans and families.
Success is a process not an event. It is constantly over coming obstacles, dealing with rejection, rescheduling, persevering, failing and trying again and again. Every single huge goal you achieve only puts the next goal higher, making it harder to hit. This creates frustration and growth. There is no glory in winning a battle with no challenge though. Being in a constant state of ‘two steps forward, one step back’ is exactly where almost every self-made person finds themselves every morning. True success comes from extreme hard work, simply not giving up and honestly believing in what you do so deeply that quitting is not an option. This nomination is another indicator that we are on the right path. The support you’ve given us over the years, especially this last year, has literally been priceless. Our goal as a brand is to simply leave the world a better place than we found it, even if it’s just for the night, we try. Thank you all for this nomination and thank you all for letting us do what we do. This is only the beginning and we are excited to go on this adventure with all of you.
