The song was created years ago and I just decided to rework it for this solo effort. I thought it fit well with the other songs in the collection. It was fun to bring it out of a time capsule and breathe new life into what was an old demo. – @jcaviermusic

Music Business…
I think the music business is still in transition to the new media and various outlets to reach new and experienced music fans.

Social media…
I think communicating via social media can be a pro and a con. The communication can be immediate, but so can the negative communication. Test marketing songs and ideas can help us overcome some of these hurdles.

I took guitar lessons in Junior high…
and formed a band after playing for about a year. We won the school talent show performing Rock and Roll all Night as KISS. I was Ace. That’s when I got the bug. Bounced around in various cover and original bands for years until Eye Talk was formed in the early 1990’s. Different line ups and formats followed. Big break was in 1999 when I met producer engineer, Dave Kent. Kent mentored me for the next year on advanced studio recording techniques. I then recorded and produced the next Eye Talk CD’s, until going solo in 2015.

I live in Phoenix, Arizona…
There are lots of cool places to play and watch music. The sunsets are fantastic and a visit to the mystical spots, like Sedona, are always fun. Phoenix also has a large population of excellent tennis players. I train with many of them each week.

 

Pearl…
is the name of the recent single and video. The song is about finding the “one” and the famous, another fish in the sea analogy. Two false starts with girls I dated until finding the one. Director, Brad Wong and his cast/crew did a great job setting the stage and the scenes. iTunes Link for album “Premier”: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/premier/id1111319204?ign-mpt=uo%3D4

The song was created…
years ago and I just decided to rework it for this solo effort. I thought it fit well with the other songs in the collection. It was fun to bring it out of a time capsule and breathe new life into what was an old demo.

I have fairly big expectations for myself and this project…
I’ve been waiting a long time to feature these songs and add the video elements to the songs. The songs, videos, photo sessions, social media contact, style and look of the website, and the outstanding PR team at Miles High all work quite well together to generate a new brand image that is somewhat familiar and yet new. The reviews have been really good. The level of detail the reviewers get to and the nice things they say about the songs and performances just make me blush. I’d like to land songs in some movies or TV. And of course, I’d like for this project to get picked up by a major label, so we can reach an even larger audience.

We’ve released singles and the full length album…
I enjoy both. The singles can bridge the gap between album releases and keep the fans interested. I’m also starting to release cover song singles here and there. Just recorded Save a Prayer by Duran Duran. Drop date is 08/26.

This project team utilizes all of these promotional forms and can move very quickly when we decide to do something or launch a new message.

I like fashion and pop culture…
but I also want to say something unique and timeless with my songs and the image I project.

I’d like to have 5 minutes alone with Taylor Swift…
It would be great to talk to her about her song writing and recording process.

My favorite music quote or inspirational quote is…
“I want to sing, I want to dance, I want to be somebody”…Paul Stanley, KISS
