I know I have been pretty silent on local music for a long while and there is a pretty good reason for that. The reason for that is, I don’t care anymore. Yep, that’s right… I said it. Don’t really care about local music as much anymore as much as I used to. Venues just come and go. There are no places to play anymore which could explain why I haven’t been gigging. Sure, there are plenty of bars to play at but I’m not a big fan of playing the same shithole places, ya know? Also, the way this area promotes local music bothers me as well. This area claims to be supportive of all “local music” when that’s a lie. This area have always been pretty selective on who they support. On top of that, I don’t go out to see other local talent too much other than going to see EBJ once in a while, that’s about it. We don’t have much of a music scene at all, to be honest with ya. All the politics, negativity, and drama in the scene haven’t changed too much either.
I’m never giving up performing live. I’m never giving up my music. However, from this point on, I figure I’m going to do my own thing musically as I have been most focused on my own thing. I’m not gonna care about anything else but my own music. I’ve had that attitude for a long while now and it works.
I try my best to get recognized and get noticed like most musicians and will always try to but if this area wants to ignore my music, I’m fine with that. I don’t strive for success, fame, and popularity like so many bands/musicians are obsessed with these days. I strive for the love of music, that’s what I strive for. It’s part of why you don’t see me moving on to bigger things with my music ’cause I never cared to get big with my music. I see music as a hobby and a way of life for me. I don’t have delusions of grandeur like so many do. So I will do music for myself from now on. I’ll just make music for the internet exclusively.
I still have the internet album and the live stream show planned. Will continue to get my youtube channel going too. I have plans on just being an internet musician for now. I still would like to play a live show at a venue sometime if the opportunity will ever come up.
We always had a crap music scene. It never changed.
