President Obama Wants to Hear WHAT?

President Obama spoke in New Orleans on August 27th, 2015. Check out what he wants to do when he leaves office. Here’s the beginning of his speech:

President Obama: “Hello, everybody! Where y’at? It is good to be back in the Big Easy. And this is the weather in August all the time, right? As soon as I land in New Orleans, the first thing I do is get hungry. When I was here with the family a few years ago, I had a shrimp po-boy at Parkway Bakery and Tavern. I still remember it — that’s how good it was. And one day, after I leave office, maybe I’ll finally hear Rebirth at the Maple Leaf on Tuesday night. I’ll get a chance to “see the Mardi Gras,” and somebody will tell me what’s Carnival for. But right now, I just go to meetings.”

Thanks for buying music

Thank you for buying our artists’ music. It’s what allows us to make more.

We just wrote checks to over 150 songwriters and their publishers plus checks for artist profits. Your purchase of music helps a lot of people and their families.

Recently read an article about streaming that posed the question “what other industry sells a product for an unknown amount of money and with no idea when they’ll be paid?”

Although we do have our artists’ music on the streaming services (for now) we do not know how much we get paid, and we have to wait for the consumption of the music to get paid. If that is the only way you consume our artists’ music, then that creates a huge cash flow problem for us.  I expect that model will in time eliminate our ability to make quality music.

If you love an artist or a label, buy their CDs, downloads, books, and vinyl.  Thanks!
