The Music Business vs. The Solitary Walker

The beautiful music business through the eyes of a solitary walker!



The starving artist shapes their life around the possibility of being the next big thang.

The driven label executive shapes his/her life around making money through the manifestation of the starving artists vision.


Zee artist wakes up every morning tasting the "lack of substantial success" in his/her mouth. A funk that Listerine won't fix with 45 seconds of swishing.

Zee executive rises from their semi-comfy bed with the hunger for more of the "semi-success" that they've had the pleasure to dine on.


In some ways, the artist is dependent on the executive.

In many ways, the executive is dependent on the artist.


In many cases, the artist gets the raw end of every dealing he or she has with the executive.

In more than one way, the executive realizes a larger monetary gain than the horse who is pulling the plow. <-- Artist


BUT TODAY... I'M HEAR TO TELL YA, THERE'S SOMETHING MORE.

Those days are gone.


In this day, the artist gives and receives. Instead of just giving.

In this day, the executive crawls to eat at the table with the self-made artist.



IN THIS DAY... THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY IS OPEN AND WELCOMING.


Watch it happen before your very eyes.

Rusty - The most important thing to know about being successful at anything is that you've got to keep doing it. So, good start and keep on keeping on.
