I happened to know few music artists and their dedications to their craft and the sheer level of sacrifice everything for the art has sometimes made me wonder. In the recent past I do not wish to pay for any musical CD but listened to them via Youtube. I did own few cds that I really love. However, majority at the time I just tune into Youtube and find out what is new out there.
Most often I am drawn to old classical and timeless pieces … I listened to them over and over again, and I never felt so tired to listen to them. Music has filled my heart and my soul in such a way nothing else ever comes close.
Thus when I read in the latest news today about this kid. His name is Jarrett Koral, and he is only 17 years old. He is selling music via Vinyl format and not digital download or even CD.
Artists work very hard for their crafts. From writing the song, to mix them and to master then it requires hours and hours in perfecting the sounds. Artists often start out with not a lot of money, and you know if you see one successful artist, there are millions of unknown and unheard heroes out there. They work in the dark of the night because they have to get up and go to their daily job to support their love. However, relentlessly they come up with song after song with hope in their heart that somebody from Sony record or any other record company whisks them up out of their humdrum of the daily lives into the lives they know and feel they deserve.
Artists are so amazing in their spirit of serving. I am sure in the back of each artist they dream of a day they are basked in the glories of the lime light yet many have lived to see it. So let’s support our artists and stop buying songs, and music or illegal downloads and to pay them outright from the hard earned of our money and the grease of our own labors. Artists demand respects even if you don’t like their music. Never thrash a song just because you don’t like it. They’ve worked with all of their hearts and souls.
So when I read about this kid who starts his individual Record label, and his idea is just to help out. I feel so touched in my own soul for such a young and spirited entrepreneur. Let’s applaud this effort and support their grass root movements in bringing back the beauty of vinyl records.
