Hold On to A Song

Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope yours is going well! Remember, many experience a time of loss or memories of loss during this season. Hold On To A Song, http://reverbnation.com/michaelegleton, features the background vocals of the great Paula Dupree Smith and the and the powerful voice of Ms Ginger Pittman, both from Akron, Ohio. It's produced by Wes McCraw for the award winning project, A Look Into My Heart. I was contacted recently by someone who was experiencing just that at this time of year. Loss! Great loss. They told me how this song helped them through the night and asked me to post it to my sites so it could help someone else. To that person, that"s why I write music to touch and change lives. Thank you for the ultimate compliment. This gives meaning to the words, "Spreading Holiday Cheer." Spread Share you cheer with someone this season. You never know who you may be helping through a difficult time. WWW.MICHAELEGLETON.COM!

Persevere is the word! Time to get out !

Today the word for me is PERSEVERE. Hello everyone! :) It's time to free my mind. lol Well it's time to put the last few pieces into place for this machine so it can began to work. One being Management/Manager and the band members. I guess it's learning time again for me. This seems to have been the hardest thing to do. Maybe it's because just anyone won't do! Pressure can make one make the wrong decision and in many case we do. Dead lines, desires to get started, timing and many other factors cause us to place ourselves in a position that is most times found out in the heat of battle. That's why I persevere to have the right pieces in place and do it right the first time! In this business there isn't much room for mistakes. People in your camp must see the vision as you see it and know their role in YOUR vision. Not constantly trying to make it theirs. This is what makes it almost impossible to find that proverbial needles in the hay stack. So I continue looking, until a perfect mate of pieces is felt. I have to bring the heat and plan on doing just that! With that said, you got to have heat makers with ya! I'm so excited with the reception of my new release, A Look Into My Heart. It was also accepted as a IMA Music Awards entrant and has had many great articles and reviews written about it. The music has received great reviews from music industry writers who have listened to and examined each song. Now it's time to live up to what was written on stage and I plan to give the listeners and concert attendees everything I have. With a supporting cast that has the same mind set, WATCH OUT! Thanks for reading. Michael Egleton WWW.MICHAELEGLETON.COM

Dont Stop !

Hello everyone, fans, new fans, friends and well wishers. Tonight's post will be something a little different. Tonight in my quiet time I was reflecting over my journey so far with my music and different season's I've experienced so far during my journey. The different adversities I've faced and that are to come. I am a believer that anything worth having does require work and sacrifice. What are you willing to sacrifice for your dream? Your level of sacrifice can be compared to your level of belief in your dream. I had never looked at things this way until now. I likened things to a competition mile run. 4 laps around a quarter mile track. Imagine your competitors as being your adversities. In the beginning everyone has energy and is fighting for lane positioning. In the beginning of your quest everything is going crazy with all types of confusion and adversities. More people and things competing against you than for you. Then there's the middle of the race where the runners have settled into their lanes and everyone is pacing themselves. In your quest toward your dream, imagine this time as things going smoothly as you move forward in your quest of your dream. Now we're coming into the last lap, runners are tired, struggling, your tired and winded, in your quest imagine this time as "hell time"! Everything seems to be going wrong, adversities or in our analogy, runners are on each side and maybe in front fight to get in front. Elbowing, pushing, bumping each other and in some case tripping and falling as adversities can cause one to do in their quest toward their dream. Don't stop though. If you may have tripped, get up and keep running. Now the finish line is in view. Hopefully at this time your way ahead in your quest of your dream. Now is the time for your second wind, your kick as runners describe this part of the race. The finish line is your dream. It's right there and your winning. Lean in and cross the line! The race is not given to the swift nor to the strong but to the one that endures to the end... Finish strong!
