Why we have not posted any of our new songs online…yet

2 04 2011

When we were planning our release of “Humanity”, everyone had big plans for it and wanted to do a typical single release with a slick music video. We were going to do some big radio promotion and send the album out to every blogger and reviewer to get publicity. We were going to post our songs everywhere on every site so that the maximum number of people would hear it.

In the end, we decided not to go that route.

People are inundated all the time with music that they are told they should like or not like. We look at charts and stats to see what the next big song is or whose record is hot at the moment. This leaves little opportunity for discovery, for sharing music with your friends, for finding something for yourself and experiencing it on your own terms.

I hope that those of you have heard our album and have found it moving or encouraging will tell your friends about it. Let them listen to it. Heck, I don’t even really care if you rip it for them. (Hopefully they will eventually buy it if they like it. We’re poor!) I just want you to experience the music with another person. I want the music to be discovered through other people and not us trying to push it on you.

I’m sure at some point we will release a music video or try to push a single and post song clips online, but for now, we just want people to find the music in the way it was meant to be found….through each other. That’s what “Humanity” is all about. Sharing music and art with each other without us hyping it up for you. I hope you are blessed and encouraged by this album. I poured my heart and soul into these songs when I wrote them and I hope they will give you some hope and drive to keep pressing forward.

Many Blessings,
Tim
