Thanks to all the folks on IMP for listening to my songs and liking them enough to nominate Holworks for a Golden Kayak. Though I didn't win, it is nice to know that all the hard work I have put into making these songs in 2018 has merited your attention. This is not supposed to be, just ask anyone close to me. If I had a band, maybe it would be different. Still, I am a grateful conduit, returning what the Lord gives to me. I wish everyone all the best with your music!!!!

Yay! It is all fixed. . . !

My songs still do not play when I click on play. I generate quite a bit of traffic to this site but not if the songs will not play for people who want to listen. I have asked Support to help. It is not my browser, computer, or device. The songs will not play on any device I own and they would on September 3, 2018. I thank all of you for your comments. Hopefully, Support will fix this.

Good news,

The songs are all playing when I stream my stations.

However, they won't play if you try to play them individually.

Hey Mark.

Just read your message on my page. No, do not remove any of your songs.

However, I did notice that yesterday, a new entry appeared on the New Songs section on the front page of IMP, "Holworths Introduction ". That is when the problem started if that can help you with your dealings with IMP Support.

Thought I'd let you know that none of your songs are playing right now.

Thank you for stopping by my page, Mark, and for your most kind words. That I would be so honoured and be seen as one who inspires you, truly is humbling.

It is great to see the well-deserved recognition being given to you and your music of late on the site. As a long-time member of IAC/IMP, and that you have stood the test of time, speaks highly of you and your music.

My thanks to you too for being a special part of our artist community, and for the part you play in breathing life and hope into the dream.

For you reading this message, thank you! The last four months for me have been filled with headphones, overdubs, splicing, rehearsing, repeating, and generally getting lost in a morass of music. I wish I could do it all the time and didn't have to worry about whether or not I am going to lose my house for not working at something that is bringing in an immediate income. I do believe I am supposed to write songs, or else I never would have written one, let alone 150+. Alas, I contribute to cosmic noise as the stars have yet to align for me properly, or maybe they have and quicksand is my pound of flesh. Regardless, I hope the next 9 years reveal to me my musical purpose. I want it, but may not possess the skills needed to make it happen. My smile remains as I can listen to my songs here on Indie Music People to remind me - I give all!

You've got a "sleeping giant" quality to your songs, that seems to come with a kind of divine inflow, or inspiration, that I dig/have affinities with.

Dreamlife on...

Wow, nine years between comments, . . .I guess I should be more active, lately I have been. I quit writing after Forage in 2015. I thought what anyone would when a dream is no longer lambent, I Give Up to commemorate a song I had written years earlier. In April, I found myself unemployed, no longer a Honda salesman, which afforded me three albums in material over two of five years with three years in a creative black hole. I still had song ideas but I tried playing, performing my songs to anyone who would listen. Hundreds of Periscope, Facebook, YouTube video ventures to build an audience and have something to post to Twitter. Since I already recorded those simply, I found myself with a lot of time to headphone. I recorded seven songs in seven days for the DreamLyfe album. All of them are on this site.The tedious part for me is the music, . . .ahhh, . . .I am not fluent with it like those four year olds on YouTube. Well, enjoy my music, this colored air. Maybe I will correct the mistakes I hear in them and make some more songs soon to finish that album - DreamLyfe - I do want a T-Shirt. - Mark - Higher Order Language Works - Holworks

That's interesting I see "Swift Water " grabbed someone elses attention too great melodic lead and song that demands feet tapping-

Of course this is not the first visit, but you put a smile on my face!

Hi Mark,

Thanks for coming by my page and for your nice words about my Johnny Cash tribute song - much appreciated!!

Nice to see you still singing your heart out. Hey, I know how life can get in the way. Still my friend, music is one of life's true pleasures. Glad you're loving doing it!! As for there still being "such a long way to go", we're all climbing Music Mountain - I'm having so much fun I don't think about "getting there", I'm just living and loving the journey day after day.

I'm doing okay thanks and hope you are as well.

Best wishes always. Happy trails.

Hi Mark,

Many thanks for your message on my page and kind words about my music and songs - songs about living, loving and hurting ... songs about hopes, dreams and inspirations ... songs about life. And no problem about the other my friend - I haven't come this far in life to not be understanding. I was happy to have an opportunity to enlighten you.

You have a fine collection of songs and music here Mark. I will make it back one of these days hopefully not too far down the road to give you the listening time you deserve and see if I can find a place for another song or two on some of my other stations.

Glad to see you have hooked up with Jerry Butler here too.

Yours in the spirit of friendship and the love of music.

Holworks arrives on IAC in earnest. I am in awe of this great site. Thanks for letting me join!. Jerry you are very gracious to extoll my virtues. I hope you lose no credibility over it. As I said you are a Master musician. I am not even a whelp, yet the words adhere to the notes and my voice welcomes the opportunity to blast as a Harbor Horn to guide the Ears of the World to a small country place in North Carolina. I am honored to have even one song recorded. I am in awe of this Gift the Lord had me reveal last year. What a year it has been too.

So please if you like any of these songs, please help us make more. We have vision, the time is NOW, and we need your help. It is just me and the World. You are the World. I am just an unsettled dust mote in it.

Thanks for listening to my almanac - Carolina Commons - Higher Order Language Works - Holworks Music for the People
