Music Is a Serious Business

I enjoy writing and recording my lyrics and music. It is costly to produce music. Like all businesses, there is a profit to be expected from the investments made by the owner, who has invested time and energy as well as finances to produce music.  I view my music as serious, because my lyrics and rhythm, reflects who I am. I am honored to hear my fans views of a song I have written. It is also, a great appreciation of recognition from other artists, who takes time out of their busy schedules to pay me a compliment.

I also appreciate listening to the music of other artists, and have respect for them as well, regardless of the genres. To respect another artist, is not to use their material without their written consent.  Downloading music, that should be paid for is unfair to the artists who are in the music industry for the promotion of their business to receive profits. They experience business losses too: for operational expenses, through travel, gasoline, hotel, food, rental fees for a building to perform, payments to others who help with the production and other expenses.

Speaking from my own personal experience in my career, as author, public speaker and Singer/Songwriter, during the Extravaganza Events, I have produced as the owner of Barrier’s Books & Associates, music is a serious business.

project what any music i hear here would sound like in a million dollar studio, keeping in mind that i love music when it is raw, and unpolished. Having said that ,this a nice piece of music to listen to. . The production needs work,i think you know that. But the sentiment ,and the base is great. Carry on..VERY MUCH ENJOYED.
Perfect the way it is.

This comes from the heart. Its undedited and even with only a flew tiny flaws, you kept your head up. Gave it your all. The tags you used should be genres here on AP. Why they don’t have any religious genres is beyond me. God bless and take care. Timmer
