New Year, new Music
As 2012 rolls in I will be releasing my eighth CD "Scenes From My Mind", a collection of smooth ambient pieces which should be available thru CDBaby and it's affiliates
Another set back with cancer tumors will see me going through chemo and maybe radiation once again. Seems a tumor was missed in this year's operation and is starting to wreak havoc. Nevertheless I am starting work on a follow up release to 'Scenes', which I may release in March.
Happy New Year All!.
Composer Ken Myers Speaks
The music scene online is saturated with new acts,new talent, a lot more than when i first started promoting online. The once popular Myspace (supposed place for musicians) is now going under due to apparent mismanagement, and everyone is flocking to Facebook (which still doesn't have a solid artist support system, although they are trying). Sites like The Spotlight Zone has a chance of becoming one of those 'solid artist support websites' with the amount of talent that I've heard here. The interface is easy (no clutter), and the music player is straight forward which is basically what most listeners like and prefer.
I have been busy writing music for film projects for which I have 'agents' in place to help push. As I am currently fighting a recurrence of cancer I try to get around online as much as humanly possible to further spread my works to those who are fans of the ambient new age genre. I choose websites very carefully in order to best serve that purpose (whether that genre is even present on that particular site and so on). Many sites have the ambient genre but many times you listen to the offerings and find Hip-Hop, Rock, and other genres populating that area. Those are the types of sites I avoid as a rule (misrepresentation of the genre), as their 'charts' often times neglect to point to the artist material that best suits the genre.
A rather long-winded blog, but I thought I'd introduce myself here and besides, I like to write (because I can)"
