Do You Like Minimalist Music?
Thanks again for listening to my music on #1 and helping me to get my songs to #1 in the country! I wanted to let you all know what I've been working on and get your opinion.
You might have noticed the surge in minimalist music these days? Minimal is just what it says - it may have only one or two instruments, maybe a few. But, it is NOT the full blown, over produced, type of thing that is so common today. This type of music is what our grandparents used to play on the front porch when they only had radios to listen to and not Any recordings. Some may not have even been able to afford a radio!
This type of music has been made popular by bands like the Lumineers (you can probably find plenty of artists on on #1 that make this type of sound). Personally I LOVE it, and hope we get more of it. Back to the roots of music!
Some of you may know that I write jingles and songs for film, and have had some success in that area. Minimalist music is popular here too. You may notice it in ads on TV etc. Here is a jingle I just did that follows that formula. I think it would be good for any advertiser that is wanting to highlight Love, family, and good ol fashion values. Please take a moment and listen to the 30 second clip and give me your thoughts on it. I call it "I'll Be There":
I also just completed a minimal version of the Elvis classic "Kentucky Rain" for an outfit that was looking for a minimal version for film. I hope they use it!
I've always loved that tune written by the late great Eddie Rabbit! You can listen to several other of my tunes and jingles at broadjam above. (If the link gets messed up let me know and I'll send you there by another route).
Finally I wanted to share a song that we just remixed. We added some guitar and piano to. While it would not fall under the minimalist genre, it is not too overdone by any standards. I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
Have a Great Day and Week!!!
