It was a short run that would never have worked out. I didn’t want to be a cog in the machine. At the time I simply wanted to bring fresh ideas to the table and use them to support something I loved. So I cold-emailed their management (and now dear friends of mine) of a my favorite unknown band back east. The message included “at the moment, I don’t think there is another artist coming up that gets me more excited or that I have more confidence in the future success of. Which is why I’d love to discuss with you what I can do to lend a hand.”
Read the fascinating story of connections and opportunities. Of course, as modest as John can be, he left a few things out.
- John and bigMETHOD are incredibly talented, resourceful and hardworking. Making something appear to be simply serendipitous is a sign that there’s plenty of talent in the background.
- One of those music bloggers John reached out to “back in the day” was, well, me.
- You might think you know the results of that outreach. Well, you know part of it. There’s plenty more – and that’s pretty cool.
Thanks John – looking back on it maybe all I can say is “Wow” as well.
