I don’t keep score. Except when my livelihood is at stake. Golf partners hate me for not caring where I hit the ball. My feeling was the more shots I got to take from the weirdest places, the more fun it was and I really got my money’s worth! I don’t play now. I was not a popular golf partner. Just gave my unused clubs to Goodwill. I won’t watch competitive music shows or battle of the bands. Music is not about competition. It’s about art. It’s about finding the people who are most touched by your art. I find them but I need to find a lot more because, damn my art is expensive to produce!
So non-competitive me is heavily trolling the internet for new fans and people to listen to me. I’m number one singer songwriter on Reverbnation.com locally. Number 2 in Florida and heading up fast. Number 19 in the US and watch out top ten. All this is lovely, of course. But I need to find my true demographic. Translation: who likes my music enough to buy a download? I’ll sell you a CD if you prefer. They will be collectors items in a few years. It’s all about selling downloads, baby!
I believe I make very good music and I pride myself on taking no shortcuts. Woodstock studios, top producer, engineer and the best studio musicians are essential to me. I don’t want to sit still as I continue to grow artistically. Sometimes I do worry if I don’t continue being the internet whore, my music is gonna just stay in bed and die! So of course I am going to get a bit promotional for a minute! Especially so I can find the people who like my music and want to listen to it on a regular basis, in their car, working out, enjoying their cup of joe. If you are up for supporting my efforts you could just use my tune widget on the right or if you want to be a super friend and fan, e-mail this widget url to your friends and recommend they give it a listen:
This rocket is gonna blast off sooner or later. You’ll be happy to brag you were there in the beginning and got a widow seat.
