Friends are cool!!
So I had my derriere firmly kicked by a friend recently who discovered that I am not doing enough to promote the CD. He is one of the founding members of the singing group I used to be with (Heart Mind and Soul), and a real talent in his own right. Truth is he needs to start playing, singing and writing again himself, but I will bring that up when its my turn to kick!!
Anyway, sometimes all you need is someone to show a little support to get you moving in the right direction again. Well my buddy has done that. Not just moral support either, he is phoning all over the place, putting my stuff on forums (Rocket Town Records) and phoning radio all over Canada. By the way, starting to work already.
Like I mentioned on another blog, the struggle is huge. I want to shout some of the things I have written to the corners of the earth. There is so much truth and love and suffering and joy and pain that I think can help others when it is expressed. In some small way, I think I can be apart of the minstrels that tell the human story in our time. So I will keep on trying to tell the story in as excellent a way as I can. As I have said before, it isn’t art until it touches someone. Enough said.
