The Higher Key / Blog


I guess it's time to come out of the woodworks here and open up to everyone just a little bit. The last few months have been incredible for me, i've really zoned in on what my true purpose is: writing really great music. I'm reading a book right now called "The Billboard Guide to writing and producing songs that sell." I guess my business degree is getting the best of me, well, and my desire to be successful. I just inked a licensing deal with Experience Music Group out of Beverly Hills, CA. I'm optimistic but not overjoyed, driven and determined. I'm hoping that if I keep churning out great songs that I finally have an avenue to properly get them exposed to the rest of the world. I have a partner.

There's also the other side of it- performing. I get groggy if I haven't played a show for a week or so. Performing is release for me, but it's also a matter of intake. Like food. That being said, I don't know if i'm willing to hop on a bus and tour the world 200 days a year. I've established a music school in Toronto, and right now, it's stable. I like stability, but I like excitement too. I suppose for now I should just create the music and see where she leads me....

One Love, MF
