The gift of music... from Ketsa, Apta, Cousin Silas and others
What do you get the person who has everything? You offer him an album for his netlabel and tease him with a wonderful video for one of the tracks.
The awesome Ketsa has recorded an album and sent it to me... for me to release via my netlabel :: weareallghosts. To say I was and am overcome... is, well, an understatement. Especially when you consider Ketsa lost his wife a couple of months ago.
Music is Ketsa's release... so I am, according to him, doing him the favour.
I doubt I will ever agree with this sentiment... and will consider myself to be in his debt. I am delighted that he has entrusted me with this gift and look forward to the time when I can share it with you.
I guess that's the thing... I have been overcome with the generosity of the artists who are affiliated with my netlabel and now have five recordings awaiting release: music from Apta, Cousin Silas, Gurdonark and Wolfgang Merx... as well as from Ketsa.
That's on top of music from some of those artists and Earlyguard.
Music is a passion of mine and to be part of this community... to be able to pass on these wonderful gifts... is an absolute pleasure.
