It's been a while since I have had a chance to get back to this blog. I am still struggling to get back in the swing of things, and when you add to that, all the processes one has to deal with to rejuvenate a career, it can be a mighty slow process. Producing new material, getting all the legal things done to insure you get paid for your work when the opportunity presents itself, as well as the copyright process, developing the website, planning out a P/R campaign, and building all the hype that makes one successful, can be quite a daunting task. I got out to play a couple times this month, sold a couple CD's, and made a few new fans, so it hasn't been all work and no play. I will be contacting CD Baby very shortly and adding my "Thanks For The Memories" CD to the audio section, as well as maybe a new single release. My intention is to release 4 or 5 singles over the coming months, and if they prove to be popular, and there is enough interest in them, I will consider putting out another CD. When I look at where the industry is today, it takes me back to the beginning of things. Back to a time when the major labels didn't offer the opportunity to record an album until the artist put out a few singles that showed some potential. I believe that is where the new business plan is headed to. In this day and age of, do it yourself Music, the cost of producing a CD still can be a major investment. Every Artist needs to invest wisely, and plan accordingly. The old path to success, and how we measure it today in the industry, has to change. The music industry as we knew it, no longer exists. We can no longer judge the success of an Artist, or a songwriter, just by the sale of their product, or how much money they have in the bank. The industry has diluted it's bench marks drastically, and yet there were no Country music albums that went platinum this past year, and that's considering Platinum is easier to achieve than ever before. It's a new adventure for the music industry, there is no blue print for success anymore. The old standards, and pathways, no longer exist. It doesn't matter today if your George Strait, or little Johnny No Cash, we are all in the same boat. Searching for a way to create revenue, and increase our audience. Under those conditions, slow, and steady, is the best possible scenario. I'll let you know when there are changes in the website, and when anything new is being released.
