Mile High Makeout: Making Connections
Nearly every day, I receive an email, instant message, MySpace note, Facebook missive, text or snail mail package from a local musician or band, sheepishly offering up their creations. Some of these folks want my help in getting their music out to more people, while others simply want to hear what I have to say about their efforts. In almost every case, the offering is accompanied by an apology, as if I'm somehow being inconvenienced. I want to take this opportunity to say, once and for all, that I welcome your music. Bring it on!
The reason I do what I do here is because I genuinely believe in the creativity and energy of this town's musicians. I make a point of listening to every single CD and MP3 I receive, at least once. I might not always find the time to give feedback, and when I do, I might not always be kind. However, I consider it an honor and privilege to have these creations presented to me, and I like to think that I'm always more or less fair in my assessment.
