Meeting with the management

I met with Maria (our manager) and her associate Roman to discuss the band's next step, now that our distribution arrangement is signed. It was my intention to play them about ten songs (live with acoustic guitar) to decide which ones to concentrate on for new material. I wound up playing more like twenty! ranging from two months to eight years old.

Some of their choices were (to me anyway) obvious but a few were a complete surprise to me. But that was the purpose of the meeting in the first place! To get dispassionate opinions and then to make more informed decisions about which songs for the band to learn.

Among other things discussed were the possibility of outside funding to prepare new recordings for a follow up to our new CD (Buddy Love 2011).

It feels good to have an honest to goodness music business machine working in the background for the band. In fact, this is the first time in our history that we've had such a mechanism in place! I'm glad to have Maria and Roman in our camp.

International POP Overthrow Vol. 14

I almost don't even have to say anything except to mention that our song "Almost In Tears" from our new CD Buddy Love (2011) is included on this fantastic compilation of Modern Melodic Rock.
