Waiting on Labels (with Otis)

When I’m waiting on answers from a record label my mind drifts off to a serene picturesque setting where “Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay” by Otis Redding is playing in the background on repeat…

(That was an excerpt from the Music Industry homage to ‘American Psycho’ I am currently writing…)

adamnicholastm asked: For the most part, I agree with your SXSW statement. However, I went down for the first part of the week and while yes, there were plenty of beers to be had, I was also able to network for my small independent company more with recognized names/faces in the industry than I have networked with in the nine years (five of which have been on tour) I've been an industry professional. But you're right, there are $$$ being blown carelessly in ATX all week.

thanks for the feedback. i hear you. for someone in your position and smaller indie companies there is much value to be gained out of networking and getting your name out there down in Austin. my commentary was more about major corporations (Major record labels, agencies, and such) who send people down without a second thought - most of which are partying with people they already know down there and just going from show to show. hope you had a fruitful SXSW…

SXSW “Envy”

Wondering why labels, agencies, management and other companies are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to send staff down to Austin (when let’s face it, the majority of those people are just having a good time and not really working) when they could be spending that money on artist development, marketing, or HIRING MORE STAFF. 

Spoken like a true person-who-isnt-at-SXSW this year, BUT.

I really do believe it…

I get frustrated with the music industry sometimes. It seems like bands are constantly posting about writing and recording new songs, but it feels like it takes forever for fans to actually hear something, if they ever hear anything at all. I understand both sides. As an artist, I want to record demo after demo. Listen to Mix Version 1 compared to Mix Version 4. “Let me re-write those chorus lyrics one more time. I haven’t quite nailed it yet.” “Did they take out some of the bottom end in Mastering? It doesn’t sound quite as punchy.” Blah Blah Blah. That’s the OCD perfectionist in me who wants to make everything just right so people will understand. Why? Because I care. I want my music to make whoever’s listening to it feel like it makes me feel when I’m performing it. The other side of me is the kid who is just a massive fan of music. When I see bands posting about working on new songs, I wanna hear what they’re working on instantly. I’ll read a tweet like “Working on a new song called “WILLY WONKA HOODLE DOODLE”! Can’t wait for you guys to hear it!” What if when the record comes out in 3 months on the “Official Release Date” and “WILLY WONKA HOODLE DOODLE” isn’t on it? As a fan, I’m gonna wish I would’ve heard the song. I post about being in the studio a lot and wanted to write this blog for the kids like me who just wanna hear what their favorite bands are working on. This is for the people who just love music and want to feel like they’re in a moment with a band that they dig. This song isn’t a part of our new record. It’s just me saying thank you for supporting our music by inviting you into this Unmastered Rough Mix Demo World of mine.. This is Rough Mix Version 1 of “Lay You Down”
Thanks to Jaren Johnston for working on this one with us. You guys go check out The Cadillac Black. They rock.

Before I start bitching, let me throw out a few disclaimers here.

First, I love the band Rise Against. Totally cool if you don’t like them, doesn’t really change the story.

Second, this is NOT about the radio stations I’ve worked at in LA or San Diego.

Third, I won’t say who the DJ or…
