New Review Website
Hi Music Lovers
The last days some people have IMed me about a new website.
I got all sorts of messages and didnt really knew why i would be interested in it.
Yesterday it got clear to me, its a webstite that is reviewing musicians
( with a rating system ) and some of you thought that i am involved in that.
Nope, im not.
I have gotten comments about musicians that they felt that the ratings they got
where the reason that venues cancelled their gigs.
Hard to believe that because you assume that venues know the artists that they book ?
So what another thinks of the music you book is really not that interesting.
I heard more rumours ( offcourse you would say )
and last night i took a look at the whole thing.
The website is this one :
I looked and first thing i saw was this :
These ratings are our opinions. We are adding reviews, and news.
So there you have it, nothing to worry about,
just a website or blog like so many others.
And they made it clear that it is their personal opinion.
I looked at it and personally i think its strange that some artists who are rated dont have
any comments, but i guess that is their choise, nothing to worry about but if you really
want to know then just ask them ?
Someone said or i read it somewhere that this was a canadian website,
so i went to the full website to see if i could find anything.
A nice website about SL i must say.
And it is showing who are behind it,
so i really dont understand where the rumours came from that i would be involved ?
The profiles of the 4 people are showing that they are from Portugal or speak Portuguese.
And the almighty WHOIS showed me that the domain is registered in Portugal.
So once again a storm in a glass of water ( dutch expression LOL )
Allthough the rumble behind all of this is suprising me.
First of all, i am not involved in any other website then this Blog,
its hard enough to keep this updated so why would i get involved with other sites.
Musicians should realise that they are in the center of attention.
People review you or give their opinions about you.
You can choose to focus on the bad ones, but i would advise to focus on the good ones.
maybe they are right ? maybe not ? normally the truth will be in the middle.
Some like you, some don’t and some like parts of it.
Its part of being a musician.
No need to get upset about it.
People didnt liked Verdi in their time, now we think he has the best opera’s
The thing that venues would cancel gigs is even more weirder.
Normally you book an artist that you like or that you heard play and where you think of
that it would be something cool for your venue.
What someone else thinks is not important, its your venue after all.
Just read that website, maybe you find new musicians you didnt heard before,
check em out and if you like it ……. book em.
Love, Peace and Melody
