The Mix Fix - by Bill Thompson, The TrueVulgarians
Just wanted to take a moment to express my appreiciation for the availability of Mixposure.com as a gathering place for independent musicians across the globe. Having been associated with the site for almost a year and a half now, I have developed a deep apprciation for the many talented and dedicated musicians and singers, who without such a place may well have toiled in relative obscurity. My sister and I had never attempted to enter the independent music scene before discovering Mixposure and our music was only known to a relatively small number of family and friends. We didn't even try to publicize our material on social networks. We were quite content to simply entertain ourselves. (Hell, I never uploaded or even emailed an MP3 to anyone before coming here... lol) As the main driver of our songs and material, it never even occurred to me that associating ourselves with other independent artists would not only expose us to so many wonderful people, but a supportive assembly of like-minded artists who wanted nothing more than to offer their help, encouragement and expertise.
That we would eventually collaborate with artists of the caliber of Lyrical Princess, Joseph Rodriquez, Scotswolfe, Abysss and David C. Deal, has been a tremendous experience and has allowed our music to gain acceptance. The simple reason for this is that their added talent has made every one of those songs better. This has made a tremendous impact on our music and how we view the entire process. I can't help but applaud the efforts of Todd, "Mr. Mixposure", who has maintained and constantly improved the site without any thought of actually making a profit and the legion of DJ's, both past and present, who volunteer their time and effort to get independent material out there for the masses. Just think of the contribution of JimAE, DaddyRabbit, Vig Wig, the Metal Master, Michael Stone, Bubba Reaves, Doug Dickens and The Barefoot Baroness Those of you who regularly listen to their radio shows know full well that these entertaining webcasts aren't just thrown together, but take a lot of time and effort. And to a man (and woman), these people have only one agenda; to promote and help the independent artist make their music known. Please excuse the length of this blog, but imho, it's more than appropriate to give credit where credit is due and, from time to time, let people know that what they do is truly appreciated. The TrueVulgarians thank all of you and look forward to many more years here at Mixposure.com and Mixstream Radio...
