New to the website is the Client Lists Section!  It was my project this holiday break, and I finally got it all up and running.  It's still a work in progress, but my plan is to have a searchable database of every project and client I've had the pleasure of working on and with.  If I've worked on a project that you've been involved with also, please let me know if there any errors.  I would like my database to be as accurate as possible.

This weekend produced some interesting and picturesque weather.  I think it made some quite interesting time-lapses.  This first video is of Friday evning as the front was coming through and it was just starting to rain.

This second video is from Saturday night and shows a colorful sunset.


There are several music databases on the web that you can go browse and look and information related to music.  Some include the Gracenote CDDB, The All Music Guide, FreeDB and MusicBrainz.  What are the differences between them?  I've posted about the CDDB and All Music Guide before.  Both of these databases are used frequently by the musicians I work with and around every day.  You can read more about them by clicking these links.


The Recording Academy has started a new campaign to enhance fans' discovery of new music by ensuring all music creators are credited for their work on digitally released recordings.  This means you can look at who the producer or mix engineer on a particular recording on your iPod (or other player) right from its screen.  You could discover other albums by a particular producer you like or discover several of your favorite albums are by the same producer and find other recording by him.


"So, how can I make money with my music that ends up on YouTube?" a client asked me last week.  I promptly told him I had no idea, but it probably had to do with getting tens of thousands of hits and then advertisers deciding they wanted to put ads on your chanel. . .  I thought for a little whlie longer and decided it would be a great blog post because I'm sure there are many independant musicians that would love to know.
