Why Musicians Need A Website 

Since this new version of my website is still fairly fresh I felt it would be fitting to write a blog about the importance of having your own website for musicians as well as any artist or business. 

In this day of Social Media everywhere many musicians have their presence on Facebook, YouTube, and many other sites as well they should. However, I (and about everyone else in "tha biz") feel musicians (and any business for that matter) should still have your own website. Why? 2 words...(or 1 depending on how you look at it lol) ... MySpace. Remember that? What happens if your only web presence is Social Media and that site suddenly disappears or just becomes unpopular? Bu-bye. Even if it is most likely to be around for awhile such as the 2 I mentioned above you are VERY limited as far as layout, customization, selling product, and very importantly...your BRAND. Most musicians or businesses (note...they really ARE 1 in the same) have a "theme" to their own site...colors, fonts, logos, etc. Most Social Media sites limit you greatly when it comes to this. But, an even bigger reason is so you can interact on a more customizable level with your customers...aka..fans. I am by no means belittling the use of Social Media but those should be a way to invite your audience to your home...as in home page ;)

Re-inventing 

Welcome to my newly re-vamped (actually completely re-done) website. Having been making music now for over 30 years and been a fan of it for a bit longer one thing that artists who are still making music do is periodically re-invent themselves. Look at acts like The Rolling Stones, KISS, Aerosmith, Madonna etc... the ones that are still successfully active have gone thru various musical and image related changes over the years. Not putting myself on the same pedestal as these artist but over the years I have been known as an "80's shred guy", Country song-writer, Flamenco World Beat guitarist and a few others, all of which are valid just different facets of genre's I like. With that I have "re-invented" my website to hopefully showcase the musical styles that have molded me over the years into the musician I am...an accumulation of those and others. Rather than trying to be any one of those as a separate entity, I am re-inventing myself as an amalgamation of them all :)
