Steve Cooke’s "Light Is Green" – Nominated For A Hollywood Music In Media Award
The Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA), recognizes music in film, TV, video games, commercials, and trailers. The HMMA has announced its nominees for the 2018 edition.
Among the nominees is Steve Cooke, with his song “Light is Green” for Best Rock Song.
The song is a marriage of New Age Rock-Blues and Americana roots music. Steve Cooke's unique vocals and modern synth-12 string guitar style, soar above the warm low-end bass and hard hitting drum lines, reminding the listener of traditional English rock songs of the 1970’s.
The man responsible for the chunky bass riffs and top-notch production is bass player, producer and musical director Michael Bradford, who currently performs with Orianthi and Richie Sambora and has played with Ringo Starr, Dave Stewart and many other celebrity artists and bands. On drums Mickey Ututaonga, who flew all the way from his native New Zealand especially to record with Cooke and Bradford.
"Light is Green"- means GO! And this is beautifully demonstrated in the music video.
The imagery is romantically dynamic, with fast edits for the songs different themes, including finding "real love" in an era of high-tech distractions.
The HMMA ceremony will feature presentations, performances, and a special achievement award. Past honorees include Diane Warren, Smokey Robinson, and Glen Campbell.
HMMA nominations are selected by an advisory board and selection committee which includes journalists, music executives, music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists, The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, NARAS, and performing rights organizations.
The awards will be held at the Avalon Hollywood on Wednesday, Nov. 14. A portion of proceeds benefit Education Through Music – Los Angeles.
