We're proud to announce that "SongCraft Presents" received an Emmy nomination! Dubway's owner, Al Houghton, was one of the producers on the project and attended the ceremony at the Folk Alliance International fest in St. Louis last week on behalf of the rest of the team, which includes Ben Arthur, Mike Crehore, Matthew Hendershot, Rob Reinhart, Steve Poltz, Dave Simmons, and Justin Bond.
"SongCraft Presents" was featured in the Arts & Entertainment Programs/Special category, and the Emmy ceremony was shown on Kansas City's public television station KCPT.
"SongCraft Presents" is a web series in which featured artists write and record a song in the course of a day with host Ben Arthur. Producers Al Houghton and Mike Crehore then take the song and shape it into a polished studio track. Featured artists on "SongCraft Presents" have included Lera Lynn, Ben Sollee, Sean Rowe, Ximena Sarinana, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Vienna Tang, Steve Poltz, and many others.
"SongCraft Presents" is currently working on a year-long multi-format project, Songs of the Road, sponsored by Ford and produced with the syndicated radio program Acoustic Cafe.
