21 Jan A Modern Day Motown
I find myself being very fascinated by Berry Gordy these days. The African American songwriter and business man that started Motown records in Detroit Michigan with an $800 loan.
Music is in a completely different place in 2021 than the 60s, however there is at least one thing that remains which is this… Raw talent is a powerful currency.
I’m committing myself to figuring out an equation that nurtures, stewards and distributes raw talent. Not only my own talents, but also other talents that need leadership in navigating being an artist in the middle of a pandemic.
You my friend, are an important part of this equation that I’m working towards figuring out. Once we develop our music, we’ll need people that are ready to be our audience. It’s as simple as that. Without an audience, it’s not nearly as fun or rewarding.
I’m excited to be building out a modern day Motown type music collective at The Secret Place. We started something really beautiful at Christmas Time and after a few weeks of thinking about what’s next, I think I’m close to narrowing it down.
Stay tuned my friends! Stay tuned.
