What inspires me is originality. When I see someone staying true to what they believe, that is the most sexy thing in the world. I started a society called The No Cover Society that its main premise is to promote singers learning to write songs instead of doing a set full of covers. I get inspired when someone takes a leap of faith to trust their talents and share them to the world.
From what I am seeing, I am impressed with the diverse artist that you promote. I love eclectic and apparently you all do as well...and besides your website IS THE SHYT!
What makes my world go round are my beautiful boys and teaching them about music. It warms my heart when they show me a song they made up. Music is the key to unlock any emotion that there is...so the fact that I get to share the gift of music with my children is an amazing experience .
