Featured artist @ the independent musicscene.com

Post by HalfBlindLefty » Tue May 18, 2010 6:46 am

:shy:

It seems there are some people out there that actually seem to like my music.
JimS told me about the website http://www.theindependentmusicscene.com and I took a look at it.

I don't know were I got the nerve from, but when I noticed the was a link with an Email address to use when you want to become a featured artist (for a day), I send an email telling them about my music and soundclick site. I asked them if they felt my stuff was nice enough to be featured. :shy:
Well, after a complete silence for a number of day's I got an email this morning :) and much to my suprise they seem to like my stuff.
Hello,

I am letting you know that you will be featured on the site, http://www.theindependentmusicscene.com on 5/18/10 at 12:01 PM eastern time usa
Needless to say I'm still a bit baffled :D

I think it true to say that the last person to realise the worth of their work is usually the artist themself. :shy:

I for one am not surprised about your being featured - I admire your taking the risk of asking them the question in the first place - that takes some nerve to do. :thumbsup:

Thanks guys :)
Guess I'd better grow some hair and accept the fact that the balance between the blond and grey hair on my head is tilting in the wrong direction :rofl:

To use a song Eric played.... "Let it grow" :away:

Until now, the disappearing effect and the greying out of my hair went at the same pace.... now the grey is winning :wall:

Don't worry I won't get famous, I'm to ugly :eye_rub:

Congratulations, Hans! :clap: :clap:

I doubt that any of us are surprised that they chose your music to feature.

Oh-oh, does that mean that Gerd will have to negotiate with your agent and your lawyers to get your music on his new CD? :whistle:

Yeah, the same over here, when I start the bt, my fingers don't even need a guitar. They start moving by themselves. I still feel leaving spaces is my best one ! :lefty:
