NOTE: This SoundsGoodMan.com is now an updated version, and I think this one may be easier for you to view or navigate on whatever device you’re using. Feel free to wander around the site or just go to the home page or choose from the “categories” for songs, vids, band bios or choose one of the pages with info.
The SoundsGoodMan.com label only supports independent musicians and bands. Those range from experimental to rock or prog to blues to metal to psychedelic to meditation to stuff you won’t have any chance of coming up with a name for.
The first band to have a song released by SoundsGoodman.com label was Moonlit Valley. What can be said about Moonlit Valley can apply to all the songs and bands that are or will be on this label. They will have a different sound and feel as they are brought into creation through inspiration from feelings, moods, images, events, dreams and any other part of life without any concern or focus on “marketability” or standard song structure or what is the musical flavor of the day. Some of the music may work out to be closer to resembling what you may be familiar with musically, others may seem rather unfamiliar which is the same as the rest of our lives. Life is full of the familiar and the unfamiliar and if we stay open to it, there is much to be gained and often many more levels or layers of experience than is apparent at first glance. All of the songs may sound different than others, but in common they share and carry the same spirit of freedom and curiosity, experimentation and openness along with a willingness to look deeper and allow deeper feelings of what life offers us than what is often pushed on us from the mass media and standard society and culture.
The same goes for all of the songs and bands to be on the SoundsGoodMan.com label with the addition that other songs or bands may be laid back or have a very driving rhythm, they may have a groove or be atmospheric, some busy, some sparse. There are no limits.
Please feel free to visit the rest of SoundsGoodMan.com to see all of the music available (which will be added to regularly) and to sign up for the newsletter which is only once a month and easy to unsubscribe from if you choose. When you are there you will also see a link to an art site
NebulaMoon.com which has some of the album and song artwork and more which carries the same approach and view of art as the music does and that is it should come from the heart or be channeled through the artist or however it works without some cold calculated attempt to market to specific demographics and to keep things safe and familiar, as that, in my opinion, is not art and it’s not expression.
So, starting today (18 September 2014) more songs, more info and the beginnings of the art site will begin!
Thanks and Peace,
BTW, what is this Steve guy like, the one who’s behind all of this?
Well, let’s see…. He scurries around underground and makes strange little noises. He sometimes sticks his head above ground and braves the sunlight so that he can run around real fast and maybe find a nice morsel to take back down and eat. He likes eating bits of stuff and playing around in the flowers. He loves eating the seed pod things that fall off of Rose of Sharon bushes after the flower is gone and the ones that hadn’t bloomed and fall off, well, those are just super yummy! Oh yum Yum YUM!
He will come out in the sun when others are around, but underground or amongst piles of rocks is what he prefers.
Yep, that’s Steve.
That sounds like the description of a chipmunk, not a guy making music and art and running an independent record label!
Well, I guess we can be whatever we are and that’s a good thing.
