What I love...

Some people have given me crap because I spend my free time searching for and booking bands for Nikki and Vicky's show Aritsts on Demand Radio and I do not get paid for it. Let me explain something. I LOVE what I do. My day job is great because it allows a flexible schedule to take care of my daughter and spend a lot of quality time with her. My evening "job" is to have fun. That is how I look at it at least. I get to spend time searching out people who spend their time in life trying to make other people's lifes a little better. I am a lyric person. Finding the right lyrics is inspiring, uplifting, and can change your outlook on something completely.

Today is a perfect example. I was looking for bands to book on the show and I saw one that was from Michigan. I am originally from Michigan, so I decided to take a look. I opened it up and was not all that impressed at first. Then the music played and totally turned me around. I now can not stop listening to it. I am listening to it RIGHT now. They are called To Be Juliet's Secret. (www.myspace.com/tobejulietssecret. They apparently sing about love to inspire people. Let me tell you, they have a sick beat and awesome lyrics and they seems like a cool bunch of people in the process.

Now I have come across so many other great bands. The National Rifle, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, Tim Be Told, Colin Healy and the Jetskis... and the list continues. You can check all them out on myspace.

Don't think that the only music out there is the music that you hear on the radio. Some people just haven't gotten to the right place at the right time to be spotted by some big record label. They are still out there. I have found in the past months that it is the smaller unsigned or indie artists that have the best music. It isn't the ones that have been drowned in the label pool of trying to conform to what is "cool". Try it!
