Tweet This blog is not here to pump one artist up, but I don’t care, it’s our blog and I want you know about Aloe Blacc. More importantly, I want you know to why I’m anticipating his new record.  It’s been 4 years since his last record came out. In today’s world, that’s an eternity […]

Tweet I was reading Bob Lefsetz’ latest mail bag email, when an email from Robin Millar came in talking about Sade. He helped produce Sade on her breakout hit “Smooth Operator” in the 80′s and was dumbstruck when label after label turned them down when he knew this would do well. “…every record company turned […]

Tweet A couple nights ago I was hanging out on the front porch with some friends and wine. At one point in the conversation, the band “The Decemberists” came into play.  One person could not stop raving about them and saying they’d fly to go see them live. The other could not stand the band. […]

Tweet Lately, I’ve been on this science documentary buzz.  From quantum physics to the history and future of the cell, I’ve been on this quest to discover the root or why of everything.  I’m no scientist, but it’s interesting to ask myself why I’m paying attention to things I’ve never paid much attention to before.

Your 2010 Music Goals

[ 8 ] January 4, 2010

Tweet Since it’s the new year, why not talk about music goals for the year? I thought this post could be a spot where people could comment their goals for the year as a starting point for their actions going forward.   I think people expressing themselves publicly may get themselves to act more instead of […]

Tweet I’m a Coldplay fan. So before Vida La Vida/Death and all His Friends was released, I wanted to hear some tracks. I saw the apple commercial for Vida la Vida and thought there may be a live version of the whole song somewhere on YouTube.  I didn’t find an official live version, but I […]

Tweet Today’s post is all about cash and band money management. I know it’s not the most enjoyable topic for many a artists, but it’s necessary if you’re seriously thinking about making music as a living. As a new band who’s serious, one of your first “career” goals should not be to get signed. It […]

Tweet I’ve been thinking on how people usually tend to lean to one side of their brain in term of how they think and function. I’m generalizing, but you’ll find very logical, rational people (left brainers) without much ambition for creativity and then you’ll find the polar opposite in other people (right brainers). Artists, I […]

Tweet You already know how we feel about albums, but I wanted to bring this up. What if you are an act who is generating some hype, but a record label is too nervous to sign you to an album deal. You aren’t going to sign any 360 deal and they know most of your […]
