The HAMYS
Collaborate or Procrastinate?

Pretend for a moment that individually or as a group there are no quotas, objectives, or salary requirements to obtain. Additionally envision never having been stabbed in the back a zillion times both personally and professionally. The competition is no longer considered a threat. Harmony exists between entertainment venues, promoters, labels, A&E executives, distributors, etc. (You are getting very, very sleepy.) Seriously, each of these entities has their own unique and specific strengths, and of course, weaknesses. I'll be the first to admit MY MISTAKE...name the artist? 

SEA OF SOULS: FLOWERS & LANDMINES CD which will be released in April 2002 is actually Sea of Souls 6th CD. FYI...I interviewed Darren Walters from Jade Tree Records (need alternative word for my type of interview...for the interviewer is supposed to talk less than the interviewee.) I can't explain certain things...except FYI in this case=Follow Your Intuition. Well, my intuition...Somewhere down the road I think Jade Tree and SOS would make a good match. Help! Tape my mouth. www.seaofsouls.com.

IT'S A MUSIC MECCA ON THE EAST COAST OF VIRGINIA. I know what you are thinking...what do I get out of all this? Pleasure. (Is that a problem, too?) Just don't touch my bags...gosh forbid. 

What if...we valued and recognized the competition's strengths and acknowledged this through referrals, sponsorships, joint projects, or simply a kind word. I truly believe this would create a natural balance in the marketplace, eventually. A unique niche would be defined for each deserving group. (Deserving does not apply to controlaholics, remember?)

Collaboration displays a mutual admiration. Have you heard Willie Nelson and Rob Thomas' latest collaboration...MARIA...SHUT UP AND KISS ME? I value that effort, but what if...a nobody and a gifted songwriter were to collaborate? How about if Paul McCartney and David Waltrip, as in no-body is better suited, fabulous guitar player, vocalist, and songwriter, were to collaborate on a song? I predict that this song by Paul and Dave would be huge. Make sure Paul gets this phone number...757-437-7147. Dave wrote a new song, which includes the lyrics I KNOW YOU THINK I'M A DREAMER. Hey, Dave go ahead DREAM DREAM DREAM DREEEAAAAM... Why not? It was a donkey not a jackass that sang...I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE in Shrek movie. 

Similarly, writers can uplift and benefit musicians. Experienced musicians can mentor less experienced musicians. Professionals can assist amateurs. Amateurs become professionals and repeat the cycle.   

This brings me to my idea of the week. (It's nothing new...just a reminder.) Going forward, all bands that become highly recognized and get ranked on the top of those charts both numerically and financially should purchase the publishing rights of one willing and deserving songwriter's work? Just one song, which could enable the starving artist to continue to work in their industry of choice.    

Bottom line...We need not feel life is one big horrid race but rather a peaceful cruise...It's possible because WE'RE CRUSIN' TOGETHER. (Gywneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis' remix of CRUISIN' is another example of a great collaboration effort and it's not JUST MY IMAGINATION ONCE AGAIN.)

Join me in my quest to increase awareness of the following artists:

Quintin Berry of Q-BASS is collaborating with LICIOUS. See and hear Q play BASS upside down. GOING BACK TO L.A.? www.liciousonline.com/band.htm.

DEIST: Enjoyed new song entitled THIS CLOSE. I desired to stand only THIS CLOSE to the stage however...CRASH INTO ME? No problem, I could hear well from afar. I value their creative expression and freedom to write and perform whatever the hell they want. www.deist1.com.   

PUDDIN HEAD WILSON: YOU CAUGHT ME BY SURPRISE, LIKE A BOW BETWEEN THE EYES...I hate when that happens. duke@osbcentral.com.

Charles Linwood Clarke III played his flute upon invitation from PUDDIN HEAD WILSON members. Man, Charles defines his music as mystical and spiritual, stemming from his philosophy that all is love. What planet is he from? Beam me up already! 757-677-3733.

STRICTLY BIZZNESS: They sure get down to business. I adore how they perform Hendrix tunes. TheBizz1@aol.com.

WALT REDMOND: I'm speechless for once! Moving? Knock 'em dead...they'll love you out west! FABULUSO artist! walt2001@worldnet.att.net.

Can you feel it too? There's a music movement in the air.
