Surprisingly enough, I've been thinking lately about the struggle people face in this country with regard to getting their music heard/into the marketplace. I've come to the conclusion that more people would get out there and be heard if people could be bothered to promote/pass it on. Why should others bother? Well, they don't necessarily have to but generally people who are into rock/metal piss and moan about all the X Factor clones clogging up the airwaves yet do nothing to promote grass roots/homegrown music. I think metal/rock fans are cynical - we approach any new music with an "impress me" attitude and in this country the culture of begrudgery ensure you'll endure a healthy dose of apathy. It's a romantic notion I suppose. Fans of a minority based style of music band together and help bypass the corporate structures to get it to the ears of many. Maybe some kinds of music are not meant for everyone....who knows? I suppose this note was inspired by seeing alot of good young bands in this area fade away because there isn't really anywhere to go. What do you think?
I'm not a person who likes to talk or mentally dissect music (especially my own). It is what it is and I suppose that may be my general reason for being apathetic towards this site and promotion in general.
I don't know if experimental or unusual music has much of place out there with the collective but I do enjoy crossing into that mindset and pushing my own boundaries.
I have decided to spend a bit more time on here sharing and maybe even opining with anyone who's interested about different facets of music. I will also be uploading new tunes from all three projects. Who knows? Maybe one or two people out there will connect with what I'm communicating...
Please enjoy what I have to offer here.
