Show in development

This will be a weekly web show. It will include interviews with musicians and other people from all walks of life about music and world issues that concern us all. Also we will be discussing how we can live our lives in a more positive way to overcome the corporate, political, and media programming and manipulation that keep us divided and conquered; keeping us fighting with each other as they get deeper and deeper into our wallets and lives.  


ABOUT SCHEDULING - I have been doing this since 2014- I know how hard it is to get Independent Musicians to get anything done on time especially because you are not paid or contracted - We in the independent music industry choose not to get into that money-driven life for this very reason - living on the schedules of the money people burns us out and makes the music more about the money than the music.

When one is driven by money and forced to produce because the money people need new material to market the quality of the music suffers. So - Let's take it slowly. Let's build something meaningful - together, on our terms.

I will start a page for just interviews soon, I have a lot from the past I can post. The new interviews will be different.  Just because we, people who are more about the music than the money, are not wired to live the "Successful" Idea, the "Professional, Corporate" structure does not mean we can't be successful. It just means we realize our differences. Many of us in the Independent Industry are "Divergent" thinkers.

Those in the Business world are "Convergent" thinkers. Neither is better than the other but when a convergent thinker needs to make money from the work of a divergent thinker it causes frustration on both sides.   

The lawyers (convergent thinkers) set up contracts and clauses that allow them to do what they want often excluding the divergent, creative thinker from the money because to them money is the most important reason for getting into the music industry.   

Watch this -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwqrKzBKWh0 it opened my eyes to why I am the way I am. It returned to me my self-esteem and self-confidence. 


That video showed me the difference between creative people and money people. It discusses the difficulties of making money and why creatives end up getting taken advantage of by money people and why the mainstream music industry runs the way it does. It talks - at the end - specifically about musicians.  

The world needs creative people. The money people need creative people. When money people get rich it is on the backs of creative people. What you do is valuable - You are valuable. Keep doing what you are doing as an independent. 


Accept your fate because the world is run by money people who think they are the important ones but they would be nowhere without you.  

Let's do this - Let’s change our world. Let's bring back creativity and integrity to the music industry
Sincerely,  Michael Wallick

5.23.2020 - Trying to make money is a pain in the butt. I have stress issues and the stress of making money - for me - is not worth it. At this point I am not concerned with making money. I just want to build something meaningful.

If you get sponsors - those who own the rights to your music and videos will want a cut. You are responsible for your legalities. I am using your material on good faith that you own the rights to what you have created.  If you are on my music blog - you have submitted your material voluntarily and you agree I can use the materials you send me for promotional purposes.
