It’s that time of the year where everyone has the choice to support high quality indeoendent releases as gifts and I’m hoping they do as there are a tremendous of fantastic independent titles out there that more than deserves your attention.
Johnny Bennett’s Christmas EP featuring Mason Embry.
My friend ‘Ian Mellencamp’ has just released his EP ‘Visions’ today on Rocket Tone Records. This three song set has some very great examples of Ian’s music. Ian’s lead single ‘Spells’ hits 300 college radio stations nation-wide today.
Revolution is on its way my darlings. The banks will fail, Governments will too as they already are. “I see through your eyes like I see through your brain, like through the water that runs down my drain” The great divide between the rich and the very poor will be bridged. You see we all know that 300 Americans hold as much money as the poorest 85 Million Americans combined and that corporations are destroying the planet with no regard for human life or nature for that matter. We also know that our so called votes don’t mean shit. This system is doomed. It’s a one party system with two brands designed to divide and conquer.
“If we can engage that feeling of revolution and change things, why wouldn’t we?” “Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it.” RB
“Then we hear a whistle and the carnival immediately begins.

This is one of the greatest lessons for any artist. The process of reaching the finish line and delivering. So many artists get hung up and end up being their worst enemy via fear, self doubt, laziness, and or ignorance.
‘The Beatles’ cut their first album ‘Please, Please Me’ in one session. Jimi Hendrix cut ‘Are you experienced?’ in six days.
The point being you have to start somewhere. Maybe your first effort won’t be a masterpiece but it will lead to your next effort and the next and I promise it gets easier over time. Don’t over think the process as it’s not really your opinion that counts. The people will respond or they won’t and that’s out of your hands.
It took me years to learn this lesson and it has made all the difference in my career. I urge you to take a risk, take the leap, and finish. It will pay you back in so many ways.
This line up features the best of the best young talent in Bloomington, IN and there is no doubt we offer a unique experience not heard in the current B-Town market. These are well known songs from the American Songbook and entertainment is our core focus.
