From October 2004 through January 2013, I spent every opportunity provided performing original music for anyone & everyone who'd listen.

If someone would have told me after that first real "show" in my hometown back in '04 that over the course of 8 1/2 years I'd travel all over the south & southeast United States, record 3 albums, perform in front of sold out crowds at the renowned Bijou Theatre in Knoxville TN and the famous Scala venue in London England, I would have laughed. Hard. For hours. But, somehow, that's exactly what I'm able to say now.

I am able to look back at memories made & experienced lived with a smile on my face, knowing that no one will ever be able to take them away from me. I'll know that with everything in me, I gave my absolute best and put my entire soul into "making it". I have made lifelong friends along the way. I have worked with a list of people that reads like nothing short of a who's who of "industry folks". I have lived. And I have learned. And not one ounce of my being has the first regret.

I have no one to thank but you. I could type out some sort of elaborate novel of gratitude...but, it would never be enough. Just know that when I say that your words of encouragement, your belief in my dream, your support of my music...all of that kept me motivated to no end. Never in a million years could I have accomplished all that I did without you.

Coming to terms with the fact that this chapter of life had ran its course was a battle that I wasn't quite sure I could win. But, to evolve often means to let go. Peace of mind and happiness are priceless, and from day one of "doing this music thing", I told myself I'd know when it was time to move on. I'm not sure that I could have planned on that realization & acknowledgement being so painful, but...the truth doesn't always feel good.

Music is more than a part of me. Its who I am. So, goodbye to this chapter and hello to the next. If you read all of this, then thank you. And if you didn't...I needed to read it to myself, anyway. My hope and my trust is in Christ who gives me strength. It doesn't matter how far away we think we've ran, He's always in the same place. Thanks, everyone.

We are Existential Worx - A radical public relations firm. Located at first in Las Vegas where we worked with top adult models and stars. We have worked in the modeling industry and fashion industry for ten beautiful years. We just recently branched into the music industry. But we have found that they are the same in the case of the esthetics of promotion.

We pride ourselves in the expressing our love of wisdom (philosophy's definition) and with that the most accurate expression of knowledge is art. We are true connoisseurs of art, and in 2013 or in 1713 music has been an art form that has shown the highest ability of gaining spiritual followings. We want to allow true artist to just concentrate on their art. We do not want true artist to have to worry about the cannibalistic fashion of the business of making music, we don't want true artist to have to spend so much time doing things to make money so they can afford: agents, manager both road managers studio managers, marketing managers, etc etc. So we feel like what we do is to allow artist to be artist. We feel like we are illuminating the world with true artist. Though we have a form of artistry that is needed in sociologically and psychologically interacting in the realm of politics, we are not true artist. So our way of being involved in the world of the artist is to open up the world to let artist be free, hence bringing more art to the world.

What we do is specialize in working with mostly un-signed and up-and-coming artist both musical, modeling, and written acts. We organized our services and rates with the up-and-coming starving artist in mind. We allow for the starving artist to be able to still have the free time to create just as the most wealthiest acts have, by allowing them to get their management, agents, accountants, all within one source saving them a mountain of debt and labor expenses that have been known to totally break an artist. We are also able to free up the artist to just create by making sure they have a constant flow of income coming into the group. Our goal isn't to just line our pockets with excess cash it is to enjoy good art like the rest of the world. As long as we can take care of our basic needs we are happy charging as less to the artist as possible while charging as much as possible to the venues that solely profit off of the artist work. We consider our clients to be apart of our family and we can 'show you better then we can tell you'

The few packages we offer, have a long list of services that we provide but the main bulk of those are the natural duties of public relations the extras are what separate us from other firms. We know that an act with professional multi-media web sites, promotional videos, and professional artwork/photography are much easier to market and it allows us to ask for higher rates when performing and for higher prices for finished products. So what we do is we provide for free the web sites, many many promotional videos, and all the professional artwork/photography needed to market the artist. For one, we are happy to produce all of those things ourselves in-house so that we can constantly update them and change them to keep the artist interesting, but also so we can make sure it is the best quality for the smallest expense. We also like to have those task done in-house because you may agree that the artist's image in any form is an extension of the artist themselves and I don't know about you but we want to have some say so in how we are perceived in regards from our art. And with that said, when we keep the projects like that in-house it allows for you the artist to be able to have your hands involved with the projects of building your sites, your videos, and artwork.

Hope to hear from you all soon.

Never let anyone tell you that you can't. The only reason why they say that is because someone told them the same thing and they listened. Keep Pushing! Wishing you a Impressive & Progressive 2012 : ) http://facebook.com/OfficialTyroneSmith
