Here are just some of the great CDs highlighted in the Artist Spotlight section of The Muse's Muse at ----------------------------------------------------------------- Corinne Curcio - Genre: POP This gifted musician / arranger / songwriter has an eclectic style drawing on Rock, Pop, Folk and World Music. Her latest CD, "Now", showcases her instrumental versatility on guitar, keyboard and bass. With her sultry voice and well crafted lyrics, Corinne Curcio weaves a rich musical tapestry. ---- John Brendan Russell - Genre: COUNTRY Humor collides with amazing country melodies! "Family Portrait" explores family life with wit and warmth. The arrangements run the country spectrum from "Newgrass" to "Americana". John Brendan Russell's songwriting is influenced by Jim Croce and Jerry Reed and their ability to tell great stories with humor. ---- Voz Del Mar Music - Genre: LATIN The newly written boleros and baladas of Ric Dominguez are show-cased in this cd, featuring the dynamic voice of Jose Luis Rios accompanied by colorful orchestral arrangements. For those not familiar with the tradition of the bolero, this should be an interesting introduction, as well as a welcome new addition for those who already are aficionados.' Sung in Spanish, but with printed English translations of the songs- adding impact, color, and meaning to the experience. ================================================================= S o n g w r i t i n g B o o k R e v i e w : by James Linderman Songwriting Secrets: Bruce Springsteen by Rikky Rooksby ----------------------------------------------------------------- This summer I have been reading a little book called "Songbook" by Nick Hornby, who also wrote "Hi Fidelity" which was made into a very cool movie starring John Cusack and Jack Black. "Songbook" is a collection of writings on Hornby's favorite songs and one of those songs happens to be "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen. Reading about Hornbys almost obsessional love for "Thunder Road" was just the inspiration I needed to make me pull Rikky Rooksby's book on Bruce Springsteen's songwriting secrets off the shelf so that I could take a closer look at the work of this songwriter who often elicits this kind of almost hypnotic adoration. Here's what's in Rooksbys book. Songwriting Secrets is divided into 5 sections with each section offering a different analysis of selected Springsteen tracks. Analysis is the key word here as the author takes a very analytical approach to what is a vast and varied catalogue. Section 1 looks at song structure in more general terms, highlighting specific songs but only focusing on small subsections of each piece. Section 2 looks at song structure in much broader terms and also features a clinical view of the use of harmonic devises like specialty turnarounds, chromatic movements and boutique key shifts that are considered the cornerstones of some of Springsteen's finest work. The sections that follow discuss stuff like Springsteen's studio tricks, some of the elements that make him a "must see" live performer, his guitar techniques and of course, his lyrics. In the end notes there is a complete discography and some helpful theoretical material to help developing musicians and non musical folks navigate through the book without difficulty. In my opinion, the element of Springsteens songwriting prowess that makes this book so fascinating is the element of diversity. Springsteen has been the Dylanesque poet of the beautifully stark "The Ghost of Tom Joad" cd and the "Rambo of the six string" the very next year with the release of the very commercial rock record that made him an international superstar, "Born in the USA". Recent recordings like "The Rising" which features my personal favorite Springsteen track, "Worlds Apart", shows so many influences and sub styles within it that many of us now view this songwriter, not just as an American pop music icon, but as an artist with global relevance and worldly maturity. Songwriting Secrets: Bruce Springsteen by Rikky Rooksby would obviously be a must have for Springsteen fans and also for anyone who feels like I do, that the analytical study of successful songwriting is an integral step towards gaining that kind of success for ourselves, eventually. I also think this would be a very good book to check out if you just have a curiosity to look inside some wonderfully crafted songs and see what makes them tick. You can find a copy of Songwriting Secrets: Bruce Springsteen by Rikky Rooksby at . ****** ABOUT THE REVIEWER: James Linderman lives and works at theharmonyhouse, a music lesson, songwriting and recording pre-production facility in Newmarket, Ontario.

Used By Permission ----------------------------------------------------------------- I'm gearing up to do a performance for the first time in about 3 years, which means I have a lot of work to do! Of course I've been teaching and playing all this time, but I haven't been performing, and that's a whole other ball of wax. Not only do I have to remember all of my songs again, I have to get myself comfortable with the idea of getting up in front of people and entertaining them for an hour or two, and that's the most difficult part for me. What I have learned over the years is that I have to prepare myself psychologically as well as physically to do a performance. And I feel the same way about songwriting...I have to create an environment to be creative in, not just physically, but psychologically and emotionally as well. On the MusicDish Industry website which I peruse from time to time, I've often found myself drawn to the articles by Linda Desseau who calls herself a "self-care coach". Not only does she write on the issues I've already described, but she also deals with taxes and musicians injuries, things we don't always pay enough attention to as songwriters or performers. So this month, I'm going to focus on the articles written by her, some archived here on the MusicDish website: The articles with "the everyday artist" in brackets tend to deal with creativity such as connecting with your strengths or surroundings or your fears, but others cover topics such as dealing with criticism and sharing your work with others. One title that made me laugh out loud was "Clutter and Creativity"! My husband and I have often debated this (he's a television writer)...whether clutter affects our ability to be creative. We both find ourselves buried in a heap of junk in our offices sometimes. I have to admit, it's most frustrating when I'm in a creative mood and I can't find my pen or my microcassette recorder, or I spill coffee all over my papers! But is there any truth to the idea that a messy place can stifle your creative flow? Well, read the article and find out! When you go to Linda's website, Genuine Coaching (, you'll find even more articles! You can also sign up for a newsletter and a free course called "Roadblocks to Creativity", where you'll get 7 lessons on the "7 most common roadblocks to creativity and how they might be getting in the way of your creative expression and fulfillment". There are also e-books that you can pay to download; one looks like it was written for me..."Preparing for Performance" . Believe it or not, there's even a free meal-planning worksheet and a self-care quiz! And, if those aren't enough articles for you, well my pal Jodi reminded me that Linda has ALSO written a number for the Muse's Muse. You'll find them here: A couple of them are the same articles found on MusicDish, but many are unique. Sometimes it's worth taking a little time to either assess your lifestyle or habits, or pamper yourself a little to see if you can't get that creative flow moving smoothly again. Me, I've got to get these calluses hardened up and my head and heart in shape for that next gig! ****** Irene Jackson is a performing songwriter from Victoria, BC in Canada.

Today, guerrilla marketing is a non-traditional, low-cost, and highly effective marketing endeavor, which when used properly can reap many rewards for the diligent user. So what can you do to use guerrilla marketing to help further your music career? The first piece of advice I can give you is to think outside the box. Don't do what everyone else is doing. Here are a few ideas to get you started: • Use podcasts to broadcast your music, helping to expose your music to a lot of people who may have never heard it before. Make sure that you plug your website and where they can purchase your products. • Why not go to your local library and see if they will allow you to do a free concert there in exchange for a percentage of your sales of product after your show. Libraries are in dire need of funds. • Another easy and free way to get your name out there and seen is to write reviews on every product your own, have used, read or heard. Then post the reviews on places like and Make sure to put a small two or three sentence bio at the end of each review that has the name of any CD projects you have done. You can't post your URL there; they will delete your bio. When you post your reviews, put your vanity email address inside your "real name." While those sites won't allow you to post your URL, if your URL is part of your "real name," they don't say a word. Check out and look for one of my reviews. This is what you will see: "Jaci Rae - The Rae of Hope." (Don't use a real email address or you will end up with a lot of spam. That is my website, but the email address is fake.) Why is this an important step? Because people will read your reviews and you get your name out there. Most consumers are Internet savvy and if they are interested in you, will check you out. These are just a few ideas. A very important part of the guerilla marketing process is the business side. In order for all of the ideas you come up with to benefit you, you have to be registered with the correct places so that when your hard work begins to paying off, other people know it as well. Here is a list of some of the places you must register: Broadcast Data Systems Attn: (find out who is in charge at that time) Los Angeles 6255 Sunset Blvd., 19th Fl Hollywood, CA 90028 323-817-1506 323-817-1511 and SoundScan Retail 914-684-5505 Venue 914-684-5506 Fax 914-686-1556 I list more ideas as well as places to register your music that will be crucial to your music success in, The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money and its companion The Indie Guide to Contact Information. There are a lot of Guerrilla Marketing techniques I am sure you can come up with yourself. If you want different results and what you have been trying in the past always turns out the same, then you must do something different! Guerrilla marketing is what you need to do differently. Go after your audience with fervor and diligence, but think outside the box to get the results you desire and the exposure for your music that you need. Wishing you the greatest of successes! ***** Jaci Rae's grit and determination brought her from a poor childhood to a successful singer and author who tours around the world.
