Master guitar player, Todd Mosby, wins the ZMR (Zone Music Reporter) Award for his album, ‘Open Waters' in the category for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album. Open Waters was the only album in the history of the ZMR's to override an Album Of The Year win (FLOW) listed in the same category (FLOW was nominated for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album as well). Mosby said; "This is a huge surprise that I was not expecting at all!"

Released on August 1, 2019, and produced by Windham Hill Records founder, Will Ackerman, the twelve track concept album depicts a musical journey out of Atlantis. The song genres range from Jazz, New Age, Folk, and Indian influences. Music from the album was played on radio stations worldwide. The third track on the album, "Coming About" is currently playing on radio stations across the U.K. and Europe.

In addition to the ZMR win, 'Open Waters' also won three silver medals in the Global Music Awards for Best Instrumental Album, Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, and Best Contemporary Acoustic Instrumental Song (for "A New Land"). The album was also a finalist in the International Acoustic Music Awards for Best Concept Album and the track, "Dolphin Song" was a finalist in Hollywood Music Awards for Best Contemporary Acoustic Instrumental song.
