BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ALL OF US
Original music is such an important part of our basic humanity.
Sadly, it has become devalued and homogenized in our current culture.
In the 1980s, fast-food chain Wendy's asked in their advertisements "Where's the beef?!" With popular music today, we wonder...where's the depth?!
Music fans love to talk about what's going on with the culture at large—the zeitgeist. We've had hundreds of conversations over the past few years regarding the state of the music industry, with individuals from different backgrounds, in different locations and occupations, and a wide range of ages.
One thing we all have in common? We are Bullfighters.
Why “Bullfighters"? Because we are tired of the bullshit and garbage and lies we’re force-fed on a daily basis.
We get it all the time.
From people...family and friends, coworkers and bosses, politicians and celebrities, police and priests...
To corporations...TV and radio, advertisements and junk mail, call centers and “help" desks, return policies and final notices, more advertisements—and on and on.
Bullfighters are seekers of the truth, champions of the underdog, and while Bullfighters are each unique as individuals, they hold shared beliefs about the current state of music:
- Bullfighters believe today’s culture lacks popular music with depth and meaning, and most of what we hear on the radio is music-by-numbers.
- They believe most pop “musicians” are actually corporate brands with carefully constructed & controlled images whose songs are generally written via formulas by a handful of middle-aged Scandinavian men.
- They believe major record labels only want “hits,” stripping talented artists of their creative freedom and not allowing them to make the music that they really want to.
- They are tired of greedy record labels turning talented artists into indentured servants by saddling them with debt, demanding perfection, and suppressing or ruining their potential in the process.
- They believe artists go too long between releases and should consistently be releasing new music.
- They believe that right now, with all of the possibilities offered by the internet which allow artists the unprecedented ability to have direct, one-on-one connections with their fans, we usually only hear from our favorite artists when they have something they want us to buy.
- They believe most popular artists are out of touch with (and too busy for) their fans, and that fans aren't rewarded enough for their support.
- Finally, they believe the deck is stacked against independent, do-it-yourself artists.
But there is hope...
You can show the suits who control the music industry that great songs matter more than “hits."
You can have ongoing correspondence with an artist in which your feedback is used to shape and inform their work, helping determine what they release to the public.
You can help an authentic artist earn a modest income without that artist having to go deep into debt or sign their creative freedom away to a record label.
Above all, you can restore power to the fans of music and the talented artists who create it.
And in return...
You get exactly what you want from that artist, at a high level of quality, on a regular basis, at a negligible price.
