Well I gotta' say it... I've been working away solidly for years now writing and recording music. Well, learning to record could arguably be a more apt description of that, but nonetheless, I've been recording and putting my music out there.
Of all the many ways that I had always dreamed of getting my music out to a place where people can hear it, I had always thought that I would like to have the opportunity to have my music in television in some capacity. Loads of people watch TV, and I believe in the music I write, and so I always just kind of figured that it would be cool to be watching a program, or a movie, or something, and hear my own musical works in the background. Seems like it would be pretty cool if you ask me, and I've actually worked towards that goal over the years, refining the quality of my recording process, and making song that just sound better. I've amassed a grwoing catalogue of songs with a Music Supervisor site that deals with musicans online. In fact a number of my works appear to have at least been listened to for consideration for this type of thing, but I've had no luck so far in landing a placement.... Until now.
My very diligent team over at Rosner Management have been working diligently with music that I've submitted to their own music library, and would you know? They were able to get my song 'Never Let Me Go' placed on a series on The Sports Network called 'ighways to Fairways'. This was very awesome news for me, and naturally made my day, and subsequently, inspired this post.
It actually couldn't have come at a better time for me because I had just had to cancel my own 'Rise Up' tour date in Peterborough, due to a number of lineup problems, most notably that one of my band mates was to receive a major surgery immediately after the show date, and he just had too much medical stuff going on to be able to devote time to playing live. He's going to be away from playing for many months, too, and s very talented, so the task of finding a replacement is not an easy one. We'll keep looking though. We have a couple of guys to check out that have shown their interest., and I'm confident that we'll find the right guy.
On top of that, my summer tour I had been planning had to be cancelled. This is because of the timing involved in getting everyone on the tour aligned with the proper credentials to apply for the P2 visa. That process takes three months, and this surgery, although expected evebntually, literally came up at the last minute.
In any case, we're looking for the replacement, and are planning to set up some summer shows in the absence of the tour, and I've been writing and recording all the while, so there's still some productivity afoot. You can be certain that there will continue to be some new rock music coming from Ian K in the near future, and I've even started thinking about a CD release party type of event here in Peterborough. Hopefully some of you will be able to attend!
Till we talk next time, Have a great day!!!!
