Hmm... Interesting... I'm Being Solicited For A Music Deal... (Whodda Thunk It? LOL)

Hmm... Interesting... I'm Being Solicited For A Music Deal...

A gentleman I am unfamiliar with sent me an e-mail stating (a) he has an undergraduate degree in business marketing, (b) is working on his album and (c) sent me links to his on-line music wave files so I can hear them.


So this is what happens when you start your own record label to make music with your friends, eh? People actually contact you for your opinion, open the door for possible collaborative sessions and/or solicit you for jobs. Dude DJs and dropped some very interesting names in his e-mail. Left me a long distance contact number as well.

My first thought was, "why me?" My second thought was, "Hmm... Interesting..."

I then clicked the links and checked out the wave files embedded at drop.io because I am nosy that way (LOL). I shall forward his e-mail to a couple of my blogging/musical buddies and see what they think. Will keep you guys posted if we sign and/or do decide to hire/represent him.

I have three independent contractors signed and a couple of artists, so I am perfectly happy with my tiny little corner of the digital music world. It's just me having mad fun with some of my talented brick and mortars so I never thought I'd be getting solicited by out of state musicians looking for work. Especially since I have never posted a musical job opening and don't plan to post one anytime soon.

Sometimes life throws you a curve-ball you need to catch. Once the ball is yours, you have to figure out what to do with it. The ball is in my court... I must admit I am clueless... I really didn't see this coming.

Oh well... Time to dig up a dollar for my attorney girlfriends... So much for my looking for an adventure. Seems the adventure found me (LOL). :-)

You, clueless, NEVER!  You'll figure it out--and I can't wait for you to share it here!  When do you have time to sell real estate, girl?!

Hahahahahaaaaa! My hubby would beg to differ on the clueless debate (ROTFL). I do have my moments. I even take "moron pills" (LOL). :-D Debe, the cool thing about having an outside office is that you can switch between projects at the drop of a hat. Nothing like a laptop and air card to keep you connected, eh?

I get tired just READING about everything that you have going on ... how do you do it all?

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) almost 11 years ago

Richard, I work in 20 minute increments and the wee people work for M&Ms (LOL). You can get a lot out of Stephen if you buy a case of the yellow packs with peanuts. You think I have a food fetish? Wait until you see your virtual nephews in action up close and personal (LMAO). ;-)

C - This profession requires us to wear many hats, but you take the prize. I'm guessing that you have an extra special air card that is pumping oxygen into the room, kind of like they do in the casinos in Vegas. Am I right?! LOL

You amaze me.

LOL @ Judy. My ADD is very happy. Music gives it something interesting to do (LOL). ;-)

I'm gonna keep you in mind, as the county-wide worship team I'm leading gets rolling. ;-)

Hmmmmm need some real estate songs for this? hee hee....oh, and I managed to "unfeature" my Deck the Halls.... :( but thanks for the thought?

Cool. I shall teach you how to open and run your own label, Lisa. It's an interesting venture. ;-)

Karen, my love, I fixed it (LOL). If you edit it unfeatures in the groups. I need lots of new material. I am driving my friends crazy. We're having mad fun. :-)

See the blogging takes you all over the world.  You are definitely doing something right, because people are finding you for whatever you do.  I look foward to saying, "I knew her way back when..."

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) almost 11 years ago

Keep me posted on your music success.  I will make sure to be at the Grammy Awards when you hit it big. You truly are amazing with all you do.  Let me know when you want to meet up in NYC again.

Well i for one am NOT surprised!  Active Rain has become a place to jump-start anyone... IF they are good at something.  Your stuff is all out there.... it was sure to find a hook!  May i have your autograph NOW.... before you get too famous?

Posted by Diane Rice, SFR, SRES, CNC ( Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL) almost 11 years ago

Jane, what do you mean "knew" as in the past tense? Geez... I'm not going anywhere. I plan to grow old here testing out all kinds of thoughts and projects (LOL). If not for making those little digital films to share with you guys I never would have stumbled into all the other recording stuff so this is just one more bit of fun to explore and spoof on. If anything neat happens you guys will still know me. I will still be doing sleepovers and invading states (LMAO). ;-)

Josef! Hi sweetie pie! I am looking forward to catching up and will definitely keep you posted on this little adventure. We're working hard getting the album out. It's been very interesting. BMI is a lovely non-profit organization for recording artist and they are very helpful. There is a lot I need to do to get the rest of our paperwork done. We're putting together a musical catalog and have to register a bunch of new, original works. :-)

Diane, too funny! I doubt I'll ever get famous from spoofing and goofing with the help of a few friends (LOL). It is a lot of fun, though. :-)

I can't wait for the autobiography! Will you do hardback and softback and online versions? Will you have your own e-reader! Maybe you could do a singing version - whoa! there's an idea - they don't stop once they start. You go Girlfriend!

ROTFLMAO @ Janice. I'll be blogging as usual (LOL). I'm working on three books right now. My childrens book is a hoot. I'm illustrating the boys.  ;-)
