DANCE which was produced by Herrick with Music Row hit makers Michael
Bonagura and Buddy Cannon. The single recently broke into the Top 100 on
the Country Breakout Chart. The music video was directed by Robb Smith
and produced by Blue Hawk Productions.
Herrick
is comprised of Donna (mandolin/lead vocals), her husband Kerry Herrick
(bass/vocals), percussionist/drummer Jeff Bradshaw and lead guitar
player Jefferson Rogers.  The music is varied and diverse, mixing
tradition with contemporary sounds. Donna shines with startling vocal
range and power. Herrick’s dynamic live show has given the band a
stronghold on the touring circuit with an average 125 shows a year. The
band is known for compelling songwriting, comprehensive instrumentation,
and killer harmonies.
Herrick previously won the prestigious Country Song Award in the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards (IMA) for “Cry Memphis,
which also appears on NEW DANCE. Earlier, Herrick’s dynamic
musicianship and intricate harmonies proved to be a winning combination
in the Jim Beam Battle of the Bands at the BamaJam music festival.
The
Telly Awards program was founded in 1979 and is the premier award
honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and
programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials,
video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected
advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable
operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
For
its 34th season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube
to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part
of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition to recognition from the Silver
Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners,
the Internet community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.
“The
Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,”
said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Herrick’s
accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to
their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video
production.”
A
prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry
professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The
Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical
standard of excellence that Telly represents. The Silver Council
evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do
not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a
high standard of merit. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners
of the Silver Telly, our highest honor. Approximately 25% of entries are
chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“We
worked really hard on this video and the album as a whole,” Donna
Herrick says. “We were in a really powerful period of growth musically,
and kept discovering new directions. We wanted it to be the best it
could possibly be for our fans; no cutting corners. The album was
wonderful and painful and exciting; a true labor of love that was four
years in the making. The video was great fun and is a solid
representation of the song and our live performance.”
