This thing is about to launch. To say I’m a bit nervous would be ridiculous. Nervous can’t even begin to describe it.
I’ve been doing this my whole life – making music- however, I have not been making a public spectacle of it my whole life, much less creating it for someone else.
There’s a first time for everything.
It’s both exciting and terrifying – I’m confident it will work, yet, at the same time, it’s a frightening prospect to take something you have such an intimate relationship with, and hand it to someone else.
In the end, as with most artists, you want your work to touch people. You want it to stick in their subconscious.
You want it to last.
It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a 15 second introduction to a youtube video, or a four hour opus navigating a drama, to the artist, it’s all a part of them, and we treat it as such.
This was really the driving force behind the idea for all of this – there are so many really great podcasts, youtube channels, etc. out there with terrific production values, content curation, and hours spent in production – why not give them an option to have the sound associated with all that work be created in the same thoughtful, careful, deliberate, and passionate manner?
I have no aspirations of getting rich doing this – or probably actually making much at all – I just like to make music, and I like to to have what I make affect people; improve that thing they are as passionate about as I am about this.
In the end, our passions are what define us.
This is mine.
