Songs Of The Times: Where Do We Go From Here?
An interesting letter on Neil's LIVING WITH WAR TODAY webpage regarding the Songs Of The Times submissions. The question is: where do we go from here?
From song contributor Kenton R. Adler:
"It's great that so many of us submitted songs, and there are some really great submissions among them. Not only did I contribute mine, but I have I listened to a bunch of the others, and I have also written to a number of the artists who contributed to congratulate them on their efforts. But, where do we go from here? You've obviously generated a kind of grass roots head of steam here, and people are speaking out. Artists are voicing the collective conscience as we should. But how do we spread it to the next level and keep the snowball moving?"
So where do we go from here?
It would seem that at the very least we should support the artists as best we can by listening to their music first and spreading it second. Where available, support the artists by purchasing downloads or CDs. Or attend their local concerts. Emailing links to the songs is also an effective grass roots networking tool.
