#1. really like this. You might like it with an infinity sign or perhaps a musical note as well.
#2. really like this as well. However, it seems a little busy and I can't tell what the dots are supposed to mean. I like the fact that "music" is separate.
#3. I also like this one. However, the keys look old -- like an old record label. Also it is hard to tell that they are piano keys when the logo is small so it looks like there is some cutout in the CD.
#4. I like the treble clef, but the wings don't do it for me.
#5 and #6. Thank you for submitting. I think both of these aren't dynamic enough.

#1. I meant "might try" -- not "might like". Sorry typing too fast.

is there any other direction as maybe the way your company name came about?

Name is from one of the most beautiful "cays" (or keys) in the bahamas. Completely isolated, white powder sand and the most clear, intense blue/aqua color water I have ever seen. However, "key" can also relate to music. And therefore since BMI/ASCAP didn't have the name, I took it. The music done by Sandy Key will be a cross between Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Eric Johnson, and Santana -- very broad, but includes Pop, blues, latin, and intense guitar.

hope that helps.

#7. I like this. Try a blue color (water color) aqua marine blue?
#8. treble clef too big on top.
#9. I like this one even more than #1.
#10. Great try. thank you, but it is too hard to tell that there is a note flag on the "K" in my view.
#11-#13. I like 11 the best. I think it was very creative to do the bubbles, but I am afaid someone might think you drown on this record label. ha ha.
#14. This is the most creative one I have seen. You put the sun/sand feeling together with the musical tuning fork. I wonder if another font would make it look less retro.
#15. also very creative, but I am afraid nothing strikes me here.
#16. Very cool. I do worry though that someone might think it was reggae.
#17-#18. Interesting, but not as good as some of the others.

Thank you all!

There are so many additions I won't comment on each and every one. I do want to thank each of you for submitting all these. Even the ones that I ranked as "uninterested" doesn't mean I didn't like them (except for the triumpant events -- which I thought was quite funny!)

I did another quick rank. As time goes on my impressions change so I could rerank things as I continue to look at these.

Again, thank you all for being so creative and submitting such great ideas.

I did another ranking. Still thinking about all of these.
