A MATTER OF TOUCH

From The Moment You Were Born, You Knew Touch. The Doctor Who Delivered You Placed You Upon Your Mother’s Breasts. You were passed around from one family member to another as an infant. You were held, cuddled, kissed on and…

SPECIFICITY

 

A major area where I’ve fumbled the ball as an EntreMusician were those (many) occasions when I lacked clarity. Whether in defining, explaining or processing a goal, being obsessively thorough is of most importance. 

Naturally as a “Big Picture” thinker…

CLOUDY COLLABORATIONS

I Know I Am Not  The First to Ask these Questions Aloud, but Eagerly Assert that EntreMusicians Should Inquire Frequently & Loudly, even Vehemently when Such Subjects Present Themselves . 

Who Owns The Cloud? 

Who Manages/Controls The Cloud? 

Most Importantly…

THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH

Truth can be hidden, disguised, mishandled, abused, forsaken, alluded to, cross-examined, manipulated into facts and unabashedly assaulted. 

But Truth cannot long be mistaken and it doesn’t have to be defended for very long. Truth stands its ground and stares back…

NEVER SAY NO!

There is a biblical proverb which has always fascinated me. 

Proverbs 26:4-5 (ESV) 

4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, 
    lest you be like him yourself. 
5 Answer a fool according to his folly, 
    lest he be wise…

REVISITING THE NOTION OF "NO!"

A decade ago, I vividly remember having a conversation with my two youngest daughters, adolescents at the time, to properly explain a phrase they’d seldom heard around our home. Truthfully, they had so rarely heard this word that when my…

THE BEATITUDES OF THE ENTREMUSICIAN

Never Let Anyone Tell You ‘That Ain’t The Sound Everyone is Into‘ and then You Try To Fit In; Stay True to that Sound in Your Heart. 

Never Let the Engineer have the Final Say on Your Mix; Stay True…

ARE YOU TOO SOCIAL TO CONNECT

On this Broad Boulevard of Social Distancing, where the entire world remains six feet physical feet from each other, Social Media Use is tipping the scales. To be truthful, it’s mainly nonsensical, more partisan complaining disguised as aid, silly memes…

WHAT MATTERS MOST

Firstly, I wish to extend my heartfelt prayers to everyone everywhere as we all endure in various ways the effects of this pandemic. My deepest condolences to families who have lost loved ones, or have loved ones, as I do…

HAVE YOU LISTENED TO YOURSELF LATELY??

Many Artists & Bands are faithful to record their rehearsals and performances as a means of tightening up loose ends and smoothing over rough patches. It can be tough to sit through the taping of a show where the drummer…

THEN WHEN?

It’s a little baffling to think that we are already inside the third month of 2020! 

Equally Astonishing is that Many EntreMusicians are Professional Perpetual Procrastinators. You may feel free to practice saying that three times fast! 

The Creative Instinctively…

WINNERS KNOW WHEN TO QUIT!

Recently, I was asked to do a favor for a friend, who was donating her time to an organization holding a big event this coming spring. 

Since most of those working towards this event were volunteering their time, I would…
