So many artists, so much music. how the hell did I find myself here?
From my old saying, “So many artists, so much music, throw me a life preserver, I am drowning”

Here is the original I put it up with the expleted deleted, not deleted

ORIGINAL TITLE " THE PROMOTER CYNIC "

So y'all I have promoted artists for 15 years


Over that time I have seen lotsa cryin and tears
Its not for lack of these people not trying
but some careers are destined for dying

Many in the music biz dont have a clue
that is why most wear only one shoe
They spent all their money on guitars and amps
that is why they only have one pair of pants

To succeed in this damn biz you have to sacrifice
Just thinking its easy is like throwing the dice
you see, I know i have helped many succeed
and it wasnt just talent that made them try ,it was greed

Its having that Greed and drive for success to make it
and you know I helped many but you gotta really gotta shake it
Well you all know what I am a saying
It takes more then wishing hoping and praying

and I can guarantee you aint going to be an overnight star
It takes lots of pain practice suffering and even having no car
So for those of you who think its just going to happen on the internet
well you are deceived because it takes blood tears and lots of sweat

You have to get out there and work your fuckin chops
and you cant just bring me or others a bunch of crap and slop
So get out there you guys and do your thing
and then, maybe someday, I will hear you sing

What's interesting is there are people like you, Bryon, and people on the other end of the spectrum who will never ever ever click on a music or video link.

Bryon good advice and it rhymes-i can usually only manage one or the other ( or neither) Honestly I get inspired by listening and stealing (borrowing) ideas. Cuts both ways though, some songs are so good that I never want to write again.

To clarify , I have scaled down my operations. do a few artists here and there once in a blue its far too demanding and challenging in this day and age.

by the way, this was in my notes from 2015 and i just rediscovered by accident ,when I was looking for something for my submission to a licensing company. it is actually entitled the promoter cynic

I did not find what I thought I could, which I knew I did, so I have to do it all anew.


As for me.
Now as a musician in the wilderness, lost and wandering.perhaps treading water maybe myself drowning, and perhaps deluding my own self that I can be successful

But you have to be at least attempting to appear out in the world,if you dont, you will disappear , so in spite of the challenges, the frustrations, the dead ends and hitting the wall so to speak, one has to be in it for more then the FAME, (obviously) MONEY (cause there is less of it split between us all) so INVEST in yourself and SURROUND yourself with people who BELIEVE in you!!

keep on going, do your best, enjoy the challenge in this the spinning ball and the ether that surrounds you

YOU MAKE YOUR OWN WORLD, so get involved around the internet or playing your chops when you can.

But for me, if I get satisfaction of doing a song and look at the result,liking it , then I have succeeded, yet if someone else is moved by it and listens and likes it, well that is pretty cool too.

no expectations, no disappointments

The only thing I expect is to wake up each morning still Black as ever! At my age waking up is a really cool thing. Never know when the grim reaper might creep in on a brotha and steal my light. But my main remedy is to be thankful for all the small things in life and stay hopeful for better things. I know the odds are stacked up against me but I have beaten the odds over and over again. I was told I would never walk again after my stroke in 2003. I was up the next day dragging my left leg down the hallway. Within 6 months I was walking with a slight limp. Now I get up every morning and powerwalk 4 1/2 miles. I am built Navy tough. Taught to never give up and so I won't. Ever! Give up! until I have written and produced every song that wants to come out of me. Success is relevant to the individual perspective. My selling 10,000 CD's is considered laughable according to industry standards. But to an old indie artist like me it is a success worth being thankful for. No, I may never be a household name but I do know that about 10,000 people have consistently considered my music worth a buy. For me, that is a great success! You have to pick your successes and let them lead you to greater ones. That is what they use to tell us during the civil rights protests. Stand your ground face the enemy with a smile and they will be so confused that they won't know how to deal with you. That is the advice that a Marine Sargeant once gave us in Vietnam when we were hunkered down in harms way. I can still see myself standing there trying to fully understand what he meant while a tropical storm passed by. When they came at us it was so many that I didn't even aim. I just started firing in their direction and watching them fall. They had us pinned down for three days. Then, I touched the SGT. to ask him a question and he fell over dead. That meant that me, a seventeen year old was now the ranking man and in charge. I got my guys back to the base alive but it was one step at a time. I had to keep them motivated and ready just in case another skirmish broke out. So, I repeated the seargents words so often that we all believed it. We made it back to the boat and that was victory #1. Then we made it back out into the river. Victory #2. Caught some catfish and fried them up #3. etc. etc. All the way until I got back the base. I was put up for the Navy Cross but didn't get it. My music life has been the same way. I stay thankful for each little victory while remaining hopeful that one day I will win the war. The first 20 years in this industry didn't yield much to be thankful for but the last 20 have been quit fruitful comparably. It's sort of like the lottery. Odds are that you probably won't win it. But, if you don't play, you definately won't win it.

Bryon and Stoneman - thanks you guys. I woke up in such a difficult frame of mind and was just searching around for some distraction to get back into reality and not take myself so damn seriously. So as I was reading, this thread turned the corner for me today... you are both so wonderful and amazing. Life is good. Music is the best thing in the world. It always takes you somewhere better.
