Greg London Scores Back to Back Top 5 Singles on the FMQB AC40 Radio Airplay Chart with His Twists on the 70's Classics "Everything I Own" and "Cool Change".

In the Studio Recording His Next Single, the Master Musical Impressionist Receives a Hollywood Music In Media Award (HMMA) Nomination for Highest Charting New Artist Release

LOS ANGELES -- Currently enjoying a record setting run at Sammy's Showroom at Harrah's Reno with his hit show "ICONMAN," Greg London (www.gregorylondon.com) has broken through as one of the year's most acclaimed new adult contemporary artists.

The master musical impressionist scored back to back Top 5 singles on the FMQB AC40 Radio Airplay Chart with covers of Bread's "Everything I Own" and Little River Band's "Cool Change." "Everything I Own" recently earned London the Hollywood Music In Media (HMMA) nomination in the Adult Contemporary category for having the highest charting new artist release and highest charting release on an independent label (airplay charts).

The HMMA honors the music of visual mediums, the talented individuals responsible for selecting it, and the music of artists, both mainstream and independent, from around the globe. London will be attending the red carpet event on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at the Highlands Nightclub located in the Hollywood & Highland/Kodak Theater complex.

London is recording his next AC radio single and putting the final touches on his debut album, which is slated for release in 2010. He is going to be represented at the MIDEM Convention in Cannes, France for international distribution for this recording. MIDEM is the world's largest international music industry trade fair which brings together musicians, businesspeople, cultural policy makers and journalists.

The City of Reno, Nevada recently declared "Greg London Day" in honor of the entertainer and his long running show, which continues its longstanding tradition of allowing military personnel to attend free of charge. London was also voted the "Best Entertainer In Nevada" in Nevada Magazine's 2009 Best of Nevada Readers Survey.

On October 3, London will bring "ICONMAN" to the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno for a special performance at "An Evening of Stars," a major fundraising benefit organized by friends and family of five-year-old Reno twins, Addi and Cassi Hempel. The identical twins are stricken with a rare, fatal cholesterol disease called Niemann Pick Type C, otherwise known as "Childhood Alzheimer's."
