DownTown Blog – 2014 in Review: Part 1

2014 was some kind of a year for me personally & professionally. Where 2013 ended with the release of the DownTown Mystic CD in mid-October and breaking into the Top 100 on the Americana Music Association (AMA) Radio Airplay Chart at the end the year, 2014 would start with a few challenges. While I was […]

DownTown Mystic Blog – The Power of Music Part 3: The Discontent

In Parts 1 & 2 of The Power of Music, I wrote about 2 great bands I had discovered in recent years—Band of Heathens and The Bros. Landreth. By any definition, both of these bands are very successful. But being a great band doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have the kind of success that leads to […]

DownTown Mystic Blog – Strato-Blaster

  In my last blog post I was talking about Sync Licensing and how it’s helped to get the music of DownTown Mystic on TV. I was primarily talking about how the instrumental tracks of DownTown’s songs are used. What I didn’t really get into was what it’s also done for me as a musician […]

DownTown Mystic Blog – In Sync

In the last installment of this blog I talked about whether the CD was dead or still alive. Even though it might be on life support, my decision to release a new DownTown Mystic CD was a no-brainer for me…and I’m so glad I did! This past year has been special in many ways. The […]

DownTown Mystic Blog – Death of The CD

All during the recording of the new DownTown Mystic CD I was reading about the death of the CD and the Album as an art form. I was in a recording studio, where time is money, wondering what I’m going to do with the music I’m recording once I finish. The engineer will burn me […]
