The reason I started a Patreon page, no joke, was to start doing more things like this. Live videos and live recordings.
Naturally, it's a budget thing.
This video, recorded live on Thursday January 17th 2019, is going to look and sound amazing. Why is that important to me? Because I am trying to land some festival gigs. Playing festivals is a great way to make some new fans, and I can get the band booked if I have videos that look and sound great, like this one:
So, that's what I'm doing. I'm planning on trying to make several more videos like this one. "Latchkey Kid (Live at Studio 333)" is the second of many, hopefully. I need a few up beat songs as well as a mid tempo tune like "Fool For You" to pitch us as a well-rounded act to these festivals.
I was speaking with one of my friend's who is nearly the same age as me. She is suddenly gaining a great deal of success as a songwriter. She mentioned that the reason this is, outside of the music being good, is to have a team of people around her, that are good at what they do.
This is what I am trying to build on right now. YOU are part of that team also, if you want to be: https://www.patreon.com/mikevitalemusic
Monika Lightstone is part of this team. She is the one shooting this video footage and all of this amazing photography.
Frank Reina, Tom Bremer, and Paul Jones are a part of this team. Studio 333 is a part of this team.
We make really beautiful things when we all work together. I'm hoping that this enthusiasm that I am feeling, is contagious. I hope that you feel it. It's momentum.
This momentum needs to grow in order for my music to reach ears, so I am working as diligently as I possibly can, to create a team, to nurture the project, and to watch this grow.
I am so very thankful to have you be a part of this team and for you to grow with all of us, should this be something you are interested in: To grow older, to grow better, to grow smarter, to grow emotionally.
You have my deep and sincere gratitude.
"Latchkey Kid (Live at Studio 333)" is being edited and is on the docket to be mixed here shortly.
I will have more to share with you soon.
