We’ve come to a point where we’re scared to make music. Over the last few years, those of us who even dabble in music in the wild hope of, not being rich, because there really is no money in producing music, but for the satisfaction of being involved in a hit record, have become more and more scared and suspicious- suspicious about playing our songs to others. It’s probably why the music industry is in such an unhealthy state, and with so many trying to eke a living out of it, going nowhere. Where’s there to go, anyway? We’ve run out of places offering real opportunities to get ahead. But what does “getting ahead” mean anymore, anyway? Meeting or hearing from some has-been with a vague idea for a “project”? Pass. Been there. Led nowhere. Wasted time.
