Greg Tamblyn has had six previous nominations and one win. I first heard him sing his 2010 nominated song, All These Atoms (Uniting category), last year in his concert, Saving the World From Whiny Victim Love Songs. It was an engaging evening of hilarity and wit, elegantly poetic lyrics, toe-tapping tunes, and captivating stories, reviewed for OEN at http://www.opednews.com/articles/Greg-Tamblyn-Saving-the-W-by-Meryl-Ann-Butler-091207-700.html
David Roth's Nine Gold Medals (True Story category) is a stunning, deeply uplifting story. If you can listen to this song without needing a Kleenex, check for a pulse! David's Ahmed Al-Khatib won an award last year in the same category.
Liquid Blue's nominated song, Earth Passport (Uniting category) features nine languages and won a Guinness Record for song sung in the most languages, Billboard. Their song, If You Gotta Ask won the Spiritual Social Action award in 2008.
