Welcome to my new Blog! Issue #0
Welcome to my new blog everybody! This is an upgrade from my myspace blog both visually and in function, so I hope you enjoy! I'm not abandoning the myspace site, but I think for what I'm trying to share and do this will be a lot better.
Q: WHAT AM I TRYING TO DO?
Well, I'm really excited because starting June 1st, 2007 I began a 1 YEAR artist development deal with ISLAND FILM GROUP (based out of Hawaii and L.A.) as a songwriter and solo-artist. This means they are providing me the means in which I can work/develop as an artist full time, as well as providing them with other songs I write for different genres and artists. For example: When I write a country song, better let someone who lived the life sing and enjoy it cause no one's gonna believe this city boy...
Things have already gotten off to a great start when I found out in early May that a few of my songs had been picked up for the 3rd Season of a show called "BEYOND THE BREAK". Two weeks ago, I had an opportunity to fly down to Hawaii (where it's filmed) and play a set before they premiered a handful of episodes to a beach packed with 5,000 locals. It was an amazing experience, and the episodes featuring my songs are set to air this fall as they are currently wrapping up Season 2.
Since I've been working towards this for a while now, I (after the prodding of my friends) thought it would be fun to chronicle a year in the life of a songwriter and all the (hopefully) interesting things that can come your way both performing and creating in an industry that you have to be somewhat "not right" to get into.
That's what the purpose of this blog is all about, to share the fun times and experiences I hope you will enjoy as well...
I look forward to you joining me!
