Gaining Ground – Independent Labels

May 22, 2018

Dear Reader,

The independent labels are gaining ground. This year is the 2nd in a row that Independent Labels control a bigger share of music revenues than any of the 3 major labels.

This from the digital music article “Collectively, Indie Labels are Now Bigger Than Any Major Label”

Indie labels are now outranking major labels in terms of total marketshare. In fact, this is the second-straight year that’s happened.

Rankings are based on revenues earned, instead of units sold or total streams.

Specifically, indies pulled a 32.2 percent marketshare, with Universal Music Group following at 29.7 percent. Sony Music Group finished with 21.9 percent, while Warner Music Group lagged with 16.7 percent.

Independents 32%

Universal (UMG) 30%
Sony (SME) 22%
Warner (WMG) 16%

Sayings of Editor Art

May 5, 2018

Barreling forward like a bull driving a locomotive.

Sometimes mysticism is very down to Earth.

Don’t you recognize a smoke screen when you see one.

The blossoming tree draws all the birds.

Even when you’re great, you’re often not very good.

He was a black belt in slapstick!

We are string in a society of knots

When your parents disparage you, get a 2nd opinion.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth? Better name is last century recycling museum.

Writers live off comments? We can tell ourselves how good it is, but that’s a limiting conversation.

When the very rich donate, they are just giving numbers.

Everybody’s got claws.

Two problems with most origin of life scenarios:
1. Life magically pops up completely formed.
2. Life magically survives a hostile environment without any evolved protection.

Part of the exhilaration and excitement of visiting news places is the introduction of new bacteria into your gut biome.

You are a beautiful woman in any language!

When we consider new ideas we solve old problems.

For everything under our Sun – and many others – the sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science, a History of the Future.”

The music business is auto tuned!

1% of musicians make 70% of the money. That means that 1% should contribute 70% of the money given to charity by musicians.

Reason is a fog harvester.

Isle of “U”.

I’m old enough to remember when country music was country music

Dallas, the provincial capital of the US?

I’ve got to make things right, or every thing’s wrong.

His Latin name is Dali Surrealius!

In the 70s music split into either sappy or psychotic (all melody or all beat.) The best music is the combination of both.

Most think that if a painting doesn’t look like a photograph it isn’t art. We need art ed in schools desperately.

Spring, like an itch!

Cello (new song, lyrics, and video)

May 2, 2018

Here is a preview of a new song of mine, called Cello.
The lyrics tell of a man who hears a woman playing cello through the apartment walls and falls in love with her.

The youtube video, with a rough demo of the song will be out soon. Till then here is the lyrics.

CELLO (c) Tom Hendricks 2018

1.

I was caught off guard, reading some books one day

When I heard next door, someone began to play.

Cello practice there. She played some scales to start.

Then after a pause, she played a piece by Bach.

Chorus

First she played it sweet like a Siren sings

Then she played it rough like a stormy see

Passion in her bow as her cello rang.

Passion in my heart, not too far away.

(guitar lead, then repeat chorus )

2.

Music shows the soul. Its more than skill or rote.

When she strums the strings, feelings in every note.

(I) listen when I can, don’t want to miss her play.

(I) really have to find some way to meet some day.

Chorus (repeat).

Cannot support KERA / Texas Standard

April 19, 2018

KERA,

Cannot support you during your pledge drive because KERA / Texas Standard will not support the innovative music scene in Dallas whose progressive music ideas are sweeping the country.

My 25 year old Dallas zine, will encourage our readers not to support KERA for this reason.
