Anything can inspire me to write a song . Sometimes, a simple conversation can bring about some great music, and that music can draw people in. I call the music I create “Life Music” because it involves every aspect of my life.
The emotional challenge is to keep the dynamics and feel of the song while adding all these instruments, as often the initial intent can get lost in the mix. Mentally, when I’m recording instruments or vocals, my mind is working as though I’m part of a band, not a soloist.
I want to live in a better world and so I am trying to do my part through music for this and future generations. I am an anti-bullying advocate and create songs about life, love and social change.
You will notice in his music many expansive influences reaching far across genres. Marty takes from American singing/songwriting traditions, the science of electronica, the layers of orchestral and ambient music, the patience of raga and drone music, and the theory of jazz.
I’m looking forward to look back at this year as being the best first year for this new band. I want to be very proud at what we’ve achieved during this time. Hopefully this will take us to a new level and then we’ll record more music to enlighten the world with the unique sounds from PyraKite.
Called tWitch, Please…Help Me Dance, the series debuted today on DeGeneres’s YouTube channel and Ellentube. In the show, Boss teaches guests how to dance, starting with a high school senior in California who dreams of dancing next to Boss at his prom.
Basically I’m looking forward to looking back, and seeing the real growth I’ve made with this new direction and renewed focus on social media. Then I’ll start planning to take it to the next level. In other words: taking the shots.
I realized I could have never written the songs that I am writing now if I had not traveled the road that had been laid out for me. I am grateful for everything I have been through, all of those experiences, and for being here right now.
CACHET means seal of approval or Mark of quality in the dictionary. I am determined to bring quality music to the public and always stay honest because I’m a realist so I feel like music should be based around those areas. I incorporate knowledge & quality in every song I write (hence my name Cachet) to help people not make the same mistakes that I have made or to achieve the same success I have achieved if at all possible.
Don’t sit around thinking that when the chance to show your artistry finally comes around, and it’s the right people, that they are going to sit around waiting for you to bone up, Be ready, get there now. Be the best you can be. The time to shine will come, be ready when the time comes.
Social media is extremely important and just get yourself out there. Don’t get in your own way with judgments, just start posting. Don’t do it scared. Whatever you do, do it 100% and be your best cheerleader!
I always wanted to sing professionally but unsupportive relationships in my late teens meant that I lost a lot of confidence in my musical ability and shelved my singing dreams for a while. When I was 21, I was asked to audition for a band after a band member heard me singing karaoke on a night out. I got the job and went on to work with a number of bands on the cabaret circuit and then moved onto working with original bands in more recent years.
