Hi Josh,

This is your cousin, Stephanie. I wanted to reach out and let you know that I'm getting married next summer in Colorado and my husband (to be) and I hope that it will be a celebration of friends and family. We would love to have you and your family join us. Aunt Leen knows about it, but not sure if Chris does. The date is August 31, 2019. Hope all the Dekany's can make it. When you get a chance, please send me your home mailing address. By the the way, Alan (husband to be) and I have been enjoying your music on this site.
Warm regards,

Hey! My wife and I live in St. Louis, where I teach at Webster University, Community Music School. So, my wife is interviewing next week at Buffalo Children's Hospital for Chief of Pulmonary. SO- I've been inspired to look for music in the area!!! Besides the lovely lake effect snow, I am curious if you know anything about the town? I have applied to U at Buffalo for a music appreciation position. Also, what brought a TEXAN to New York???

Please consider my music from the video game LITTLEBIGPLANET 3 for this year’s GRAMMY Awards!
For Your Consideration

“LittleBigPlanet 3 The Ziggurat Theme"
from the blockbuster video game LittleBigPlanet 3.

** WINNER, Hollywood Music in Media Award: Best Song in a Video Game
** WINNER, Global Music Award: Best Video Game Music.
––– "Of particular note for its cleverness and musical skill is LittleBigPlanet 3's The Ziggurat," writes Emily Reese of Minnesota Public Radio. “It’s a nearly five-minute-long fugue. If you're unfamiliar with musical terms, that translates to "she pulled off something pretty nuts!" Adds KT Wong of VGMOnline, “Exquisite arrangement and immaculate technicality!"



For Your Consideration

“LittleBigPlanet 3 The Pod"
from the blockbuster video game LittleBigPlanet 3.

––– “Winifred Phillips, godsend to game music!" writes Patrick Gann of Original Sound Version. “Probably one of the most-heard pieces in-game, since you must always pass through this “hub" area, “The Pod" is too pretty for words!"

Hi Josh. I don\'t know if you remember me. I sang years ago in the oratorio society when Elisa led it, and my son was in school with yours at Ed Smith a year or two ago and has been to you house. Last time I saw you you were playing with Grupo Pagan at Dinosaur. Anyway, long story short, a friend of ours who grew up in Nigeria, Rachel Horlings Magri, and got a PhD at SU doing underwater archeology off the coast of Ghana, died a week ago in a freak electrical accident there. Her memorial service will be at Hendricks Chapel, Monday, April 1, 3:30 p.m. I am looking for West African drumming as a possible part of the service. Do you have connections or might be available yourself to get a group together? I know there is a group of West Africans in Syracuse who drum on the djembe together (Westcott area?), but I don\'t know how to get in touch with them. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hey Josh!!

Hope you've been well! LOVE the site!!

Hey, check out www.reverbnation.com/geenome. Man On The Sand has been redone, along with a whole album's worth of other music. Drop by, have a listen, and let me know what you think! I've sold one copy of MOTS, and I want to give you a percentage of sales on that song. Let me know what you think is fair, and I'll make sure you get it.

Cheers, Happy New Year, and love to your family!!
