It's great to be in touch with you again.I've been on a hiatus due to situations in the key of life lol. Now that I resolved the most pressing issues, I can again turn my attention to music.I've got a few songs I'd like to upload as demo versions and would appreciate any feedback you wish to give me. Sometimes your opinions help me to see things in a different way or makes me aware of things I may have overlooked and that strenghens my songwriting skills. Your critic is valueable to me so don't be shy.Lyrics.music,mix or my posture let me have it! I will then be able to hone the songs down to a final version .
I decided to mail out a newsletter every once in a while with some thoughts and information on what's happening.
Thanks for subscribing and I appreciate your choosing to reach out to me. Your taste in music which I'm guessing is similar to mine.That includes the great bands and songwriters who came across the progressive/psychedelic genre. They gave the world something bigger than themselves embedded in the music of which I'm a fan of along with you. We as artists step on the shoulders of giants as we're using their recipes to deliver the new paradigm of exotic sonic possibilities. In a world with so many types of attractions, we music lovers who really care gotta stick together to keep this music alive. I'll be releasing new music soon.
Hi, My Music Family,
I don't use that term loosely anyone that took time to get on this list of fans are all of that to me.
I read everything you write to me and hopefully responded to all of your contacts with me. I've been busy working with this great company out of NYC that truly have the artists vision in mind when they work with you
. This is exactly the opposite of what the music industry usually does. They like to mold you into something they think will make them money and are not at all concerned with the artists' vision we're looked at as a commodity and expendable at that! I've been lucky enough after a lot of research to find Cari Cole Voice & Music Co. This team of industry
experts in Music Production, branding, & media also bring to the table outstanding knowledge of navigating the ever- evolving music business . This is why I haven't followed up on previous promises of new material . The team is helping me to deliver the best I have to give to the music community . They have worked with finalists from the show "The Voice" as mentors and vocal coaches, bands like Journey , Steely Dan, & others we would recognize as household names besides helping unknown artists such as me, who worked in the background as a gun for hire with a famous R&B band and now doing my original music that caught their ear.. I have a desire to modernize my music but still keep it's connective roots to the past (there's so much great music out there. I'm gonna cut to the point & that's I have slowed down the process a bit to pay attention to the details that make an exceptional album such as the ones we all know all love as monuments of excellence in music. These artists actually connected in important ways with our lives ironically, beyond the music itself . This is a tall order(yikes!) a challenge I feel compelled to take on. I've waited most of my life to finally be able to create a meaningful album that will speak to both you & me in vision and scope. I'll release it when I am satisfied I've given you my best. I hope you think that it was worth the wait !
I've decided to employ some professional help so I can concentrate on just making music. This
will lead to a revamping of the social media platforms I'm using. I've had a few problems that my interactions with you bought to my attention. I've been told the songs have too many links to go through before you finally end up on my ITunes page so you can buy them. I realize that the freedom experienced by owning a copy of the song is important for both you and me. The challenge I'm facing will be better handled by pros who know how to set up the platforms far better than I do. I want to thank you for your help by giving me the heads up so I can take steps to fix it.
Love you all - Rob
Enjoy the free songs!
Appreciation for my fans who without you I wouldn't be working this hard to get the material out there.
Thanks Again -Rob
