Music is alive and well in the West!
What a joy, what a pleasure!
It is a coolish but glorious Sunday morning. I lazily got out of bed, had my morning Starbucks, and now I’m on my second cup of coffee. So, I ease down in the boldness quotient for this additional cup and currently, I am drinking “Donut-Style coffee.” Really what is that? Perhaps, it has something to do with the power of branding or cross-branding or something ‘branderful’ like that….
Anyway, from branderful to wonderful. I have been listening this weekend to some of the latest Western Canadian Music Artists. Wow. I have been blown away. I have to say it was humbling. The range of music styles is impressive, the level of production is impressive, the lyrical thoughtfulness is impressive. Such high standards can only be good for all of us artists; for we see and hear what is possible. One of the joys of being able to listen to such a cross section of artists is that some of them have already become favourites—instantaneously. I am simultaneously humbled, proud and grateful to be part of such a dynamic, inspiring and world-class musical community.
