Halloween Week

Posted in this week on October 26, 2009 by davidstromain

While I sit on another flight, I figured I should write a new blog. As you can see I have been busier than I’ve ever been. My debut single and new partnership with the NKF are teaching me life lessons left and right. One thing is for certain, it sure feels good to be reaching for my dream while helping others at the same time. Traveling has truly set in too and I am realizing that a lack of sleep is going to be a part of my life from here on out. I should’ve known that when I had kids. Both career and family couldn’t be better though…

The video for “That’s Love” is almost complete and ready for broadcast. I’ve only seen it a couple of times and I am completly moved inside and out from the performance of our two sisters. Our entire crew did an amazing job and I’m so proud of the final result. Thanks again to all of you guys…look for the official video to be posted online at VERY SOON!!!!
Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel also while you’re there….

Well, the stewardess just checked me and said to shut this off…holla!!!

Well, since I’ve last shared my feelings on what I thought my next steps should be and what direction they should go, I have surely lived up to my self made promises.  Finally, I can now say that this Fall 2009 you, the public will actually get a chance to hear a nationally released debut single.  Only after I was turned down again by the labels in Nashville for the 5th time that I realized I was going to have to do this myself in order to have the chance that I feel I deserve.  If it doesn’t work, then at least I can say that I tried.  We are launching the debut single “That’s Love”, which you can sample on and give your own feedback on it.  I am excited to be announcing this wonderful opportunity that I am being given by the great family and friends that I share my life with.  We should begin a cross-country radio tour next month and if all works just right, have the add date in late Sept.

The After Thoughts

Posted in this week on July 6, 2009 by davidstromain

So I’m walking off the stage thinking, WOW that couldn’t of gone any better. And it seems that the majority felt the same way. We got alot of feedback from different directions, some was good, some interesting. But I have to remember that all feedback is good and can teach me alot. At the end of the day the four labels that were there all unsurprisingly passed… I knew it is was probably gonna happen anyhow. If you had spoken to me that week before I bet I predicted that outcome to you. First off, I’m not gonna give a full lesson on the music business but I will say that there’s not alot of opportunity in these major labels anymore. You’re almost forced to do things yourself. Even the big guys have to do it that way. John Rich had to pay for the video of Save a horse because Warner Bros would not pay for what they wanted. And that’s the song that put them on the map…sometimes we just have to take the bull by the horn. I will not give up what is in me. In my blood, and in my soul. So we are making steps to prepare and release a single this year.
Regardless, with today’s technology like YouTube and social networking, like what you’re reading right now, us artists eventually won’t need those labels.
So that is where we are in the scheme of things…
And don’t forget about the shows coming up throughout the fall and the DSR Cruise in January 2010.
Here’s a link to help you find any info…

Oh and you can make your own call on the showcase:::)))))))

Peace out and I’ll see you soon,
