My name is Ashley Jean. I am a lover of music. I love all music, however Rock and roll pumps through my veins and it seems to be the most under appreciated sector in the industry. If you haven't made it then society is making it very difficult to. There are so many artists who's music needs to be heard. There is another cultural movement sound checking in a basement somewhere. Or the next big thing is touring across the USA playing seedy venues because a record label wont put the money or time into allowing them to be played on your radio. Your ears will never hear them. We are standing in the face of the watered down, force-fed music that the industry can guarantee to make money off of or has already made money off of. That my friends, is all that will stream through your radio and play on TV.
Now please don't get my wrong because I love some of that watered down material, however, there is a diamond in the rough every now and again. The little engine that could that someone somewhere believed in and they catch on then finally Finally! the world can hear something different. This is the only thing that is keeping music as a whole intact.
This blog will be a place where I will be able to voice my thoughts on a dwindling art. I can wish on a star that someone somewhere will hear it. And if it reaches one person then I am happy. Because its the same with any cause, if just one person hears you then you have made some difference. I am not speaking as an intellectual or a music expert. All you will hear is one voice, one opinion but with one heart I will follow a cause. That cause is to educate and ask for help in order to save the music. So will you join the movement?
