Videos? Maybe it’s time to give them a rest and get back to the audio, the music!

When you have to spend thousands to make a video, that means 99% of musicians can’t have careers. It’s a way to keep the music corporate, generic, and bland. TeXas Video Showdown, the worst video ever made, on purpose; protests all this and the fact that only 3 men control the music industry (CEO’s from Warners, Sony, Universal) When was the last time you heard a musician protest anything in the music business?

What if you are a great musician, but you don’t want to spend 100 thousand on a video?
What if you are a great musician but don’t like teen pop that always sounds the same?
What if you are a great musician but you don’t support the 3 CEO’s that control the music business?

5th CD Review by Barry

November 12, 2018

This review is from Barry (don’t know his last name) who won a Musea quiz and got my 5th CD as prize – November 2011.

My 9 CD set is virtually all the same, so his words work for all 150 recorded songs.

I’m currently enjoying your album “5TH”, having been pleasantly surprised by the sheer craft and accessibility of your music. I expected something very different and perhaps not so accessible from the progenitor of “post-band” music, but this is simply a pleasure.

Your voice is open, unaffected, and unfailingly musical, a little similar to my ears to Don McLean

The CD is well designed and produced, and makes a fine presentation to anyone you should wish to impress.

Thank you for your gift to me. Guess I’m ‘wised up”.*

Best Regards,
Barry

*My quizzes have the preface, “I don’t dumb down, so you wise up!” That is what he is referring to.
