Bam! Bam! Bam!
You got 10 minutes more
Ready or not I’m going out that door

Bam! Bam! Bam!
Nobody gets in late

If we came a minute late, Id lost my mind.

1% Musicians Should Pay 70% of the Donations

July 24, 2018

Dear Readers,

This post looks at musicians and charity.

Did you know that 1% of musicians make 70% of all the money?
They do. Most are the ten or so teen pop stars that are constantly promoted over and over, year after year. The rest are touring classic rock acts you’ve seen touring year after year.

I don’t like the disparity and want to see an end to it. But until the music revolution sweeps in, we are stuck with it.

So in this post I speak directly to the one percenters, the musicians that make 70% of the money in the music industry..

Guess what, there is a responsibility with making 70% of all the money in the music industry. You have to give 70% of all charity donations from all musicians in the music industry. Let me repeat.

You have to give 70% of all charity donations from all musicians in the music industry.

That means even a million here and there is far from enough. When you make such massive amounts of money, your 10 percent is many millions.

Step up and do your share – your 70% of the entire giving!

In the blink of an eye
someone we love is gone.
In the path of a storm.
all we have tumbles down.

So run with me
the lucky ones,
though I don’t know why.
So run with me
and be my love
for the rest of our lives.

Why are some so quick to go
and leave the rest of us behind?
Why do some live to be old
and others run out of time.

So run with me
and be my love
and all the pleasures prove.
We’ll live our lives
on the run
till our days are gone.

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%

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).
