    Where have I been?

    kevin-live-2You’ve probably noticed that it’s been a while since my last post. It’s not that I’ve stopped thinking and strategizing about the music industry, but with family (daughter #2 came) work and music, I had been stretched beyond my limitations and something had to take a back seat. The good news is that over the past year, instead of sitting at home dreaming about what other bands and musicians should do with their music careers, I’ve actually been out trying to put some of those lofty ideas into practice with my new band Hello Morning. I can tell you, it’s not as easy as all the gurus make it out to be. And I have to admit, there are some things I liked about the old school music business. Anyway, I plan to continue the dialogue as there is always something to about the topsy turvy world of the music business.

      Thanks Chris! I would love to play the Belly Up! Hopefully we’ll make it down there. I was actually down in San Diego for a couple days last week for work. I was going to see if anyone wanted to meet up, but I ended up not having a whole lot of time.
