I’m about to dive, head first into creating an album with Modern Vintage Recordings. It’s a total investment of time, heart, soul, and money. And while I have full confidence in the creative team that will help give life to my songs, I know that nothing is a sure thing. It is said that only about one in twenty independent artists who finance their own album, distribution, and publicity will gain enough momentum to have a successful music career when it’s all said and done. I do not like these odds. But when my dad told me without hesitation that I was one in a million, I began to think that maybe it could happen. After all, doors have opened thus far, leading Eddie and I to this point.
So, I stack my chips neatly, and with one motion, push them to the middle of the table. “All in.” And for now, I will give my full attention to creating the best album possible. When it’s complete, I’ll worry about the return. There’ll be time enough for counting when the dealing’s done.
