Well, this is the first “blog” I’ve done for the websites….so let’s see how this goes. The blog will be written by me, and others….hopefully by some who work with Threadhead Records/Mystery Street Records, and some of you out there who are “Threadheads.” And, I also hope some of our musicians can contribute.
Anything is fair game, as long as it revolves around the love of music, New Orleans, New Orleans musicians, and……whatever else comes to mind.
Why the name “The Tip Jar”? First and foremost….it’s a reminder that the musicians need to be paid! And, of course, it is to provide more in depth information about our projects, news, recommendations, etc. that isn’t found elsewhere on these websites.
So, with that: here goes….
This morning I was reminded by a friend of the power of music….she told me that when someone is feeling down (in this case me) to “keep the music going.” Her suggested song list (a custom “feel better” EP, if you will):
Rebuild Renew (from Nine Lives)
You’ll Get Through It (from Wilson & Moore’s “Side by Side”)
Could Have Been Worse (from Nine Lives)
That’s What Friends Are For (as she says, a bit corny, but it still works)
And this morning, I will play those very songs.
What songs would you add to this list?
What other topics should I/we write about?
Thanks for reading.
