13/4/17 Promoting Withdraw We sent out our song Withdraw from the CCP to some Falun Gong practitioners around the world. Falun Gong is a peaceful tai chi type practice that abides by the central tenants of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. Here's the different areas, they include Florida and Chicago. 1.

Indiana, Carmel, firstname.lastname@example.org We are looking to network more of our songs, Rymans the Stationers have got a good deal for business cards. We have a Meetup.com profile where we frequent some groups on there promoting our thing. I was reading about The Eagles (yes, both got Eagles in our name...) how David Geffen spent a royal fortune on his artists, and went out his way to look after his artists. That's the kind of music boss I should like to have someday. He signed the rap artist GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, so he's clued up into urban music as well, which I think is great. I was reading about McGee who set up Creation Records who famously signed Oasis who as everyone knows are inspired by The Beatles. I think Creation Records was humane and had a truthful ethic at the heart of what they do. I was reading a book about The Beatles that Noel Gallagher rated, and the book charted over one hundred songs - it's obvious to see why they were geniuses really, that many songs reminds me of Tagore, the Bengali poet who even wrote thousands of Bangla songs! The interesting thing about those guys were they were not too technically proficient and wrote more intuitively. It was simple and large scale, their musical accomplishments. The Beatles were into Hinduism, etc. going to India to find themselves. George Harrison one of The Beatles was immersed in those things - were looking to buy one of his more recent LPs. He went to Bangladesh, home of Tagore, and used Indian instruments that went down a treat with the British public. I was listening to Jay-Z interview on a BBC radio podcast and how he set up shop. As you know, The Eaghams is urban London music, and urban encompasses the rap in America which is huge over there. There's some British-Asian artists such as myself, like Riz MC, who have blown up stateside, with his brand of hip hop and an actor of some repute. Kate Tempest a hip hop artist is a novelist and playwright. So writing, acting, and music has been brought together by these artists in this country. We read about Revolver records, how the guy who founded that label set up shop, he had a real passion for music, including collectible B-sides and all genres of music and was unashamedly multicultural like this city, London. Anyway, we liked his individuality and his being nonetheless true to himself. Derek Sivers of CD Baby remarked 'Wonderful' on sending him Prospect Calendar (my song by The Eaghams, found on this blog). I have since used that positive feeback as a recommendation. Anyway, elsewhere, he was saying the music industry is like a doughnut, what he means I think is that the commercial sell out stuff seems to be vacuous and in the advent of social media and all these media tools we all have at out disposal can promote own stuff, at least, initially. Music is an on-going thing that people find their way through in different ways, in their own ways, it's all good, that's what I have been trying to do in my own subjective way. It was interesting to read Amanda Palmer's book I got to read a bit of it, I took away something positive from that book, for sure. She has been wildly successful with her crowdfunding page, I will give you the details of my crowdfunding page later at some point. Source: wikipedia Picture: Charlemagne I was curious about this whole Charlemagne thing after hearing a track from Blossoms, I bought their album which is pretty good. Apparently, he was of the Roman Empire, which tells me it's not too good, because they were persecuting the Christians back then, and they fell at the hands of persecuting the Christians! We recently found out how Factory Records was founded by a man who was a CCP supporter, it's the home of the groups Joy Division and New Order, the evil Chinese Communist Party is a sinister regime that persecutes good people namely, those of Falun Gong the peaceful tai chi type practice that abides by Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance.
