Sadly it’s clear to me that before any musician can make a living beyond selling a few t-shirts and cd’s we will have to work together to end the corporate music that is down to about 5 pop stars and 3 mega music corporations. That’s why I started the Texas Video Showdown, a video that brings the conflict to one point, one video, one challenge, one vote.
Those of you who say you support good musicians will have to prove it – either vote for a change here, or let 5 pop stars marginalize all the good musicians in the world.
Every musician you will have to make a choice too, be marginalized by a handful of pop stars that make millions and millions on sound alike music, or oppose it and open music to everyone again, like it used to be decades ago.
The indie musician, Hunkasaurus, has purposely made the worst video ever – he didn’t even comb his hair – with simple solid fun music to challenge the over produced generic corporate music of the sound alike pop stars. Help him by voting thumbs up on youtube. Be a part of a big change in music. Stop allowing the sameness to continue.
