Who Really Cares How The Music Sounds?

Who Really Cares How The Music Sounds?

Before I begin,let me make this perfectly clear, I’m not shooting for literary correctness,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. Punctual correctness typos and the like,are not something in a natural conversation, but expressions of verbal discourse are acceptable within reasonable respect.Sincerely: Nuwri Ghostleaf

We are experiencing some of the saddest times in music history when it comes to creativity in comparison to days of old Heart felt story telling in music and artists loyalty to the arts as we know and love as music. With the older artists generationally speaking, are dying off and or retiring from the FAKE game called artists of today heavily depending on collaborations and AI music help. We have to ask the question would we be better off letting AI take over the fading industry? I mean, Who Really Cares How The Music Sounds?

I recently experienced one of the worst displays of non performances by one of today’s beloved so called artists, where he performed 2 songs and a 30 minute RANT dissing other artists and politics of the world. The sadness of it all was the expressions on the faces of the $150 + ticket buyers faces. A drop of the mic after telling the reporters they would have a field day with what’s about to happen and then the Bomb was dropped (mic) and exit stage left he was gone, show over.

I’m gonna keep this short, but look for more on the near future because the buying public deserves better. After all, if this is what the music public is willing to except, then Who Really Cares How The Music Sounds? is a real question in search of an answer.

My suggestion to real music lovers, go see ALL the old school shows you can while what’s left of the great artists that are here are still alive and well. It’s fun and besides it’s the good music YOU milliennials grew up on that ya parents had you listening to before the deliberate musical destruction led by the powers that be, who knew they would capture an audience by controlling what they heard and bought. Unknowing to them that this mental deception was taking place. Like my dear musical friend, The Silver Conductor says in his hit “Change UP” is truly what is needed in the industry we all so dearly love.

The yearning for great music like what Prince and Michael still had in store for us to enjoy, but we all know why the powers that be wanted them gone. Whatever your love of music is, find and indie artist and support him, her or them, for they are the NEW music industry.

MISSING IN ACTION

MISSING IN ACTION

by: Nuwri Ghostleaf

The first thing that comes to mind is POW, MISSING IN ACTION, well let me reassure you that this has nothing to do with war. It’s about the missing musical mastery of great music like that of yesterday. Yes I know we live in different times and some of the “BS” songs are reflective of the times and mindsets of the creatives.

The genres of music also make a slight difference but not really. It’s just a different style but saying practically the same thing in a different way. No matter if it’s SOUL R&B ROCK PUNK JAZZ COUNTRY POP or CLASSICAL. Ok that’s done through musical instrument expressions but if they the instruments could say it in words, I’m sure it wouldn’t be to off base just done with a touch of Class 🙂

MISSING IN ACTION are artists like Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Marvin Gaye, and the so many other prolific writers and artists who brought us timeless hits that you want to hear over and over for the memories they bring back to heart and mind. The era’s of the 50’s 60’s 70’s 80’s, not to hurt feelings before these times, it’s just that music was too segregated back in those days, though I’m sure depending whom you ask, would have their opinion and that’s cool, but since I have the keyboard we’ll go with my accounting for this article.

Fast forwarding to 2016, we have such an abundance of musical “BS” that is being forced down our ear drums, that I personally have made my playlists of mostly yesteryear’s era’s 90%. The titles underscore suggestion is that we need as my dear friend and musical go to musician The Silver Conductor says in his hit song “CHANGE UP”

Take a moment to think of the 5 W’s and an H. The industry has changed so drastically that musicians are at a real loss on what to do and which way to turn. Even with social media and all that it has to offer like Facebook Youtube Twitter Instagram Live this Live that, still a major challenge for those willing to dive in head or feet first.

This mixed in with the cray cray political antics of what’s going on in this presidential election madness. A world gone crazy if you ask me. All this reminds of albums like: Stevie Wonders “Inner Visions” or Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” take the time to really listen to what the lyrics were saying back then, Amazing!

The magic of what was being sung about back then not just the cultural messages but the presentation of where we as a country through all the power struggle events world wide, like unnecessary wars and bad political lies being fed to the people. As I was taught growing up, do your due diligence and know your facts.

In closing let me say I’d have to agree with my friend The Silver Conductor

We  as a nation and world need a “CHANGE UP”

As the industry fights to regain it’s share of the ever decreasing revenue stream (no pun intended) Music’s How To Game Twitter Facebook Google, has changed drastically with no real end of catch up insight. Article after daily article expressing the depressing news of how streaming, downloading and music poaching commonly know as PIRACY, has taken the financials from a once $32 billion industry, down to just 1/2 that at last assessment.

Before I continue,let me make this perfectly clear, I’m not shooting for literary correctness,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.

Artists are having to be more creative than ever to get heard except for the illuminati controlled artists.

Even though it’s not exclusive to just  the music industry, let’s just stay focused on it for this article.

Have you ever heard of Payola? well it’s where favors are given to the radio programmers to get your music played and heard on traditional radio. Thank goodness for the Internet. Here an artists can create their own network of here I am. The only so called problem with this is you better up your game and gain the knowledge to be ready to become engaged with how the new game is played.

Everything social media is a constant. You must be engaged and stay engaged because of the ever changing nature of the internet. Google’s animal express from panda to zebra’s, will forever be an issue if you don’t. Youtube, Facebook, Vines, Instagram,Twitter and all the other must haves online can drive you traffic and crazy, but you as an artist, must stay focused and engaged.

Everyone from Beyonce’ Madonna, Jay Z, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Pharrell, to the hit shows like The Voice, American Idol, So Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, the producers know and use the power of the internet to stay the modern times course.

One of the saddest happenings going on today is that of a constant reporting of how many millions of dollars Spodify is making off of the creative content of many musiciansm but yet the DMCA law is being literally ignored? Like most government rulings, they wait until critical mass before acting on something that should be just a matter of doing just that, ACTING!

So where does that leave struggling wannabes or fresh new artists hitting the scene? Look at what’s working for others and Duplicate! Don’t try and reinvent the wheel, just find your (niche) audience and cater to them like your musical career depends on it, because it does.

Music’s How To Game Twitter Facebook Youtube Google, is about you doing what works best for you and your creative grooves. One of the really profitable games in the industry is getting your music on commercials and games. I know you are saying but How do I do that? well I’m not going to do everything for you, it’s called do your “Due Diligence” and get er’ done!

Like my very dear independent musician friend The Silver Conductor, says in his indie hit song “Change Up” we all can take heed to the great lyrics in that groove.

MusicLuv
