I've had a longtime love of music, as many people can claim. However, just as intriguing to me as the music itself, I also found myself drawn to the reality of the music industry. I think it started with wanting to not only know an artist's songs, but to know about them on a more personal level - to understand their lives and where their songs came from. From this, came a desire to participate in the industry itself, even if I'd been informed of it's backstabbing nature. I spent about a year working for an indie record label, doing promotional work online and in-person, and taking periodic trips to New York City for meetings. While that career choice (more like part-time hobby) came to an end, my desire to keep my feet in the cesspool of the music industry hasn't waned. Enter this blog.
I've met some of my dearest friends thanks to music and the music industry. I hope through my writing, you get a chance to meet and know them a little better. Hopefully you all kick it off, because friendships are wonderful things.
So, for now, keep rockin' & let the metal flow.
