WHEN MUSIC IS YOUR LIFE
by: Nuwri Ghostleaf
To wish upon a star is sung in many a song, but felt in many aspiring artists hearts. WHEN MUSIC IS YOUR LIFE, it’s quite a different story. The dream is so real your every waking moment is a song being performed on the biggest stage of all, Life’s stage, in front whomever will listen and hopefully become a big enough fan to want to know where they can buy your dream called music.
With the many different avenues available today to fulfill those dreams, one has to wonder why more are not making it to the Beyonce Jay Z Taylor Swift heights, well there are many factors we will cover in this short article but won’t leave you not still wanting to chase that most elusive star at the end of the rainbow called The Voice American Idol America’s Got Talent. Dream.
Before I begin, let me make this perfectly clear.I write strictly from the heart and the majority of the time straight to the point,depending on the subject matter. I’m not trying to win a literary prize for I know those awards mainly go to writers who’s ambitions are New York Times Washington Post Wall Street Journal kind of honors.
With all due respect to ALL eyes that see read and hear this,no disrespect to your intelligence,I just want to have Written Verbal Conversations with you as the friend I see you as.Sincerely: Nuwri Ghostleaf
You see WHEN MUSIC IS YOUR LIFE, things like bad reviews Haters and all the other negative trappings that will indeed come your way in heavy doses, you are going to have to have a hide of steel and stronger than strong team that Believes in you as much if not more than you do. Sadly we live in a very negative world that is more unforgiving than it it is forgiving by default.
With social media being everywhere you turn and negativity is a tweet or vine away, you are sure to wane in your quest for Platinum glory which seems to an elusive thing as of late, even for the established artists. With that being said, platforms like Facebook Twitter Youtube Google Linkedin Pinerest Instagram Spodify (which is under artist rebellion as of this writing) Pandora and many many others with new ones coming online daily.
One of the most over looked modern day communicators is fast becoming the go to music revenue generators, the Cell Phone better known as iPnone Android iPad iPod Notebook Nook Kindle Amazon. The generation that is tech savvy practically owns this market and pulling up by teaching the older generations how it’s done because their buying power is engaged and connected to it that corporate America can not ignore it thus we must say “Power to the Millennials”.
The music industry as we all know it is in a world of hurt financially compared to yesteryears, and with out the collective efforts of ALL music lovers, we could see things get even worse. Taylor Swift is doing her part, Garth Brooks has join her in the fight for rights of music song content writers and publishers when it comes to streaming and piracy. This too will take collective efforts and voices heard. Be fair in your music percentage based royalty sharing. Yes you provide a new way of distribution but at a much lower cost than that of traditional, but yet you make Millions and pay the originators very little.
Sex Drugs and Alcohol was the creed of yesterday but now artists are jockeying for a position to be paid correctly if I may use today’s vernacular. From ‘Booty’ slinging to straight up nudity…

Miley Cyrus Gets NUDE In New Music Video – Wrecking Ball
Miley Cyrus isn’t done shedding her innocent public image just yet. After her raunchy performance became the talking point of the 2013 VMAs, Cyrus is back wi…
Don’t get me wrong, this is a great song, (wrecking ball) but the way the message was delivered could have been different in my opinion and you know what they say, we all have one so come up with your own.
I guess when you love music and it is how you want to make your livelihood, you will do whatever it takes to keep the money coming in right? RIGHT? where is the integrity? With all the sex accusations popping up from way back not saying they shouldn’t, and the demeaning of women by some male artists, no names have to be mentioned or certain genres targeted, people know who and what they are, let’s just be real and FIX the DAMN problems.
If you still want to play the game after seeing all that you see in the controlled media whom by the way owns the radio stations the record companies and the magazines and some of your favorite artists, yes I said OWN (and I don’t mean Oprah’s tv world) As Prince once wrote on the side of his face ‘SLAVE’ If you only knew who the real Wizard of Ozers behind the curtain really were, your mouth would drop open in disbelief. You just might have a change of heart.
I’m not one to crush or steal a dream, I’m just a realist. As my dear musician friend The “Silver Conductor” says in his hit song “Change Up” the lyrics tell the story of what’s going on and has been for a long time. Get it today on iTunes.
