It is a great honor to screen in Nashville. I had a lot of fun making this project and collaborating with my team; for this documentary, I interviewed some Nashville-based musicians.

It was a very pleasant surprise for host/actor/writer/director/producer Gregory Graham, aka Heavy Metal Greg, to find out that the documentary/music show “Heavy Metal Greg Goes to the Grammys” was nominated for another award. As creator, host and director, the nomination for “Best Documentary” at the 2015 Artlightenment Film Festival in Nashville is yet another positive mark on a glowing resume. Gregory has an entertaining YouTube channel, Heavy Metal Greg.

Adapted from the IMDB website: this show features Greg interviewing rock musicians such as Lemmy from Motorhead and members of other big name bands including Cage the Elephant, the Black Keys, and many more. Greg gives viewers an up-close look at what it is like to be at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles and the excitement that it brings to both fans and musicians.

This entertaining music show/documentary has already received a number of nominations and wins at several 2015 film festivals, including Action on Film International Film Festival, Hoboken International Film Festival, and ReelHeART International Film Festival.

“It is a great honor to screen in Nashville. I had a lot of fun making this project and collaborating with my team; for this documentary, I interviewed some Nashville-based musicians. I really like the music we used in this project which was composed and produced by Cliff Targum. He is a pleasure to work with and is highly talented,” shared Gregory.

Cliff Targum’s passion for music is evident on his website: “Music has always been a way for me to connect with people without using words. It truly is the universal language. I have walked away from so many recording sessions with great satisfaction in, not only sharing music with some of my favorite people, but learning more about life in the process. I have been fortunate enough, in all my years, to have recorded and performed with legendary acts such as: The Wylde Truth Band, Fred Afshar, Chris Ho, The Electric Toasters, The Stand, Swen Seaholm, The Locomotive, The Stoney Dudes and many more!

Gregory is also very thankful to have for his director of photography an Emmy Award winner, Dan Feliz. “Dan and I have been putting together shows and documentaries for years now, and are thrilled to screen and be nominated for an award at the 2015 Artlightenment Film Festival.”

From the festival’s website: Artlightenment is an annual Art Show and Film Festival which showcases visual artists, painters, sculptors and filmmakers. Created by painter and film producer, Robyn Morshead in 2009, this week long event is held at the Celebrity Center (Old Fall School Building), in Nashville, TN and also features workshops, live music and a fashion show, making this event a vital force in Nashville’s creative community. The theme for 2015 is "MUSIC CITY MYSTIQUE- Behind the Art."
