I decided to start this blog about music because I wanted to have a place to keep track of the music I am excited about, the musicians I meet who are really making things happen for themselves and giving a good name to the field. Yes, music does have a bad rap…. it’s hard to make a living doing it, some people think musicians are all self centered introverts or self aggrandizing business minded extroverts… but the truth is that the world of music is like any other field. It has its heroes, pirates, simpletons, fakirs, shamans and freaks. The thing that binds us together is the artistry of the stuff, the juice we get from making good music, and the hope we have that we can affect others as much as we have been affected by the great music makers of the world.
