TO BOLDLY GO
The last six months have been the hardest period of my life and its no way over yet…
This is a very personal post so apologies if it offends you in any way. Last October, I quit my job out of sheer exhaustion if nothing else. Since January 8th, I’ve been unemployed and its now been six months already! I’ve been using the free time to pursue music in Singapore (such as it is), working hard on Power of Pop and looking for gainful employment once again.
I won’t kid you. It’s been very hard on all fronts. After six months, I still haven’t much of a clue about what I’m doing. Financially, emotionally, even musically, its been an incredible strain. There have been so many false dawns that its been so disappointing and demoralizing.
Which brings me to KAMCO Music. I originally set up KAMCO Records to release Popland’s Groovy album in 1998 and it’s been dormant since. However, earlier this year I changed its name to KAMCO Music so that I could channel my music activities (such as they are) through KAMCO Music.
And so… now KAMCO Music is also moving into Artist Management. Thus far, I’ve approached a couple of Artists whom I feel I would like to help and to be brutally honest, I thought it would be easier than what I’ve encountered. And this is just putting together a roster! Hah! Well, nobody said it would be easy, right? But am sure it’ll all work out in the end. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
Anyways, I’m thankful to Mike See for giving me the encouragement to make a go at this and certainly, I’m going to do my best, God willing. For the curious amongst you, I have set up a KAMCO Music page here, so please check it out.
Hopefully, in the days and weeks to come, you’ll hear more about KAMCO Music – I’m thinking of KAMCO Music as a family, where everybody wins and have loads of fun as well. That’s the dream anyways.
Of course, if you’re interested as a band/artist to get involved with KAMCO Music, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org. No promises but we can explore…
