Welcome back Folks!
TAKE A GOOD LOOK, YOUR IN HERE SOME WERE FOR SURE
What do you and I have to do to make it as a musician?
Or for that matter anything we have a passion for successfully while feeling acceptance from our peers and colleges?
When life ends and were given another chance. Musicians are so heart felt about good graces and musical enthusiasm. My experience as a writer of music and a person who feels the grove first from a fine instrument. Opens the heart and mind to a level of transparency that is rewarded with applause and humour. As we Musicians are constantly up for review. The critics are varied based on demographic. And for the faint of heart? Can be wrong in there view based on the own ability to develop an artist who just knocked on the wrong door. I remember a family reunion with Colonel Saunders Mr Chicken Man him self. Siting with our family at the Old Mill Restaurant in Toronto when I was seven. I knew that my fathers twin brother liked chicken. As I believe at the time there were a few franchises in the family. What I did not expect was with out an introduction to the old guy and with my 12 other cousins with me that day and all the family .
That out of no were a voice was directed to from a Rather Large Man in a white suit saying, You be good young man.
At seven with my first guitar in tow. I guesstimate that was 43 years ago and that I was to be a Donny Osmond or maybe a Micheal Jackson. As life’s lessons moved forward. I found my niche and into the teen age years I was going to be Neil Young. And you know what I sure could emulate his voice and strum a tune by thirteen. So many of us are influenced by the Gordon Light Foots and John Denver’s and Neil Young’s Elvis Presley or John Lennon’s of the world. As we artist,s at heart can not be some one else unless some one shows us how to perform such an act. With our identities striped of any real individual development. I found my self lost in a sea of dreams and unrealistic expectations. By the time twenty five rolled around I was an over-achiever and getting away with it while still not knowing who Glenn was.
Some of us medicate our sorrows in fine life style . While lets get real here .Other dream seekers take a budget ride. Either way in the end when enough is enough. My experience put on paper and to music is and still is a journey of ones individual life experience, reflected forward that determines the out come of a great song.
The start of a Musicians carrier
Recently I was being advised from a mentor to press forward and knock on some door,s with my recipe for Chicken Gone Wild. Musically speaking. While the best answer I could muster up from the highest of on high in the booking agent side of the music industry was. Management and a great show will determine the out come of your success. So what was that I asked myself?
What about the music?
And the individual who branded him self a star of the ages?
Surrendering it all up for review again?
Well for any of us whether were the very best actually, or in our enthusiastic vessel? Just ourselves! Is it not a daunting challenge for any self directed person who has lived that far to actually have some one at the top of the Music industry give us a few good words and his or her time? That mat be true or not so.
Words? As we artists or not put to paper and add music and one may find ones true self was what I was hearing.
Find a place to give back that makes a mesh with ones life experience.
While now its been my experience that we will attract the people in our lives regardless of a recording contract or super gig that with make us feel like we have accomplished the impossible and finally found a buyer for a song from my previous recipe.
Some at 99 cents from the web while others at 99 million while climbing a mountain of notes.
I have truly found!
Its ok to be me and allow those listeners to be them. While finally accepting myself and not influencing other artists that they need to sound or act like some one else in a cover band.
As in the end in my humble view as be all are lowered back down to earth .
Its about good clean energy and our journey to what we believe and feel is like the top of the music chain eyes opened or closed.
Given of course a second chance by good Graces to play for a listener who likes what they hear.
Chins up every one. All these talents and gifts we have are very real. As we may need to take a look inside instead of a listen our own voice in the heart of it at times.
That being said!
Keep it polished clean and expressed in a voice with a show of charity that changes lives for the good of our own healthy ego musically and methodically.
Have we all made it then?
