Kill The Music Industry

"So help me now I'm so lost, in this sea so saturated, thought technology would solve it all...but we're still so disconnected."

Farewell for now... (The Music Industry)

For the past few days I've been doing some soul searching. I'm taking a musical hiatus for a while. I'm going to focus 100% of my energy to getting a good job or at least in a field I am interested in (hopefully entertainment and techie based). I'm 31 and I've been doing the music thing for a minute now. This isn't the first time I've gone on "hiatus" but this time it's for real and for the best. Although something has always pulled me back towards getting my music out there and creating a new album, I believe something has to happen first. I don't know what, but there's more to life than me sitting in my room trying to make that dream happen. The dream that started back in 1999. I've accomplished most of my goals since I picked up the guitar and started writing songs. I finally (and recently) graduated from college, got my degree and now am free to go back out to the professional working world. So that's one thing, I need to get a career and I am pretty much starting over again except with some wisdom this time around. Secondly I created the album I always wanted to album that could make my peers proud, an album that my friends and any fan out there could enjoy, an album more importantly that lyrically has summarized and stated perfectly my life story and the struggle of a songwriter. That album is 'Under The Gun' which I released last year. I'm proud of it, hell, I love that album and it's the one thing that kept me in at least one more year hoping and striving to make something happen. But alas, I have done all I can, I have put the most effort I ever have in the past year. Probably 'cause I knew it was near the end, near the end of my college career meaning I would get back out in the real world and make a living. More importantly however was that I wasn't in my 20's anymore. I knew I only had an ounce left of energy, after so many albums year after year, I didn't have much left in me. I had enough to squeeze out one more album...and it was symbolic, the title 'Under The Gun' meant what I have been feeling for over a decade. Under the gun of time, always felt rush to make my music known to the world, to become a great artist. I just wanted to be heard, and I have been heard at least mostly in the first half in the last decade. Time's have changed, and it's time to seek a new course and hopefully return more inspired than ever with a new outlook to get back to making music and bringing to the masses. I'm not sure when that will happen, but I've been doing it alone for too long. I knew someday I'd break, but perhaps this is just fate as usual guiding me or rather saving me from insanity. One thing I can promise you, that I will come back to bring you the most awesome music ever...hopefully even live. I appreciate your support and my friends, family and listeners are the reason I keep going. Until then...enjoy 'Under The Gun' I'm sharing it to all for free as I'll make it free for download.
