Songwriters Hall of Fame: 2023 Induction & Awards Gala

This year’s Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction & Awards Gala was celebrated on June 15, 2023 at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. I was invited to attend via Tribeca Records by owner of the label John “SohoJohnny” Pasquale. Together along with graphic designer Nino we arrived at the grand hotel and proceeded up to the 6th floor to enjoy the cocktail hour.
