Davey Why doesn't good/our music sell more? (40) RE: Why doesn't good/our music sell more? 22 Sep 99


Interesting question, and one answer is exposure, or lack thereof. Much of the music we like isn't getting out to the masses because it "doesn't make money".. If we act as ambassadors for our music we man be able to help to introduce it to a few people, and some of these people may develop a taste for it, but first they have to be exposed to it. I also listen to and like songs being written by some current singer/songwriters, provided they are covering general topics and stories that have a broad appeal and are not enmeshed in the "look at me and what I've done" mentality. Some of their songs are on the way to becoming part of the "tradition".
