JOHNNY NO CASH & THE CELTIC OUTLAWS & CHERRY COLAS

Indie week was just so much fun. I made it a point to be at Cherry Colas Rock N Rolla for the Johnny No Cash and the Celtic Outlaws show. It was just so worth it. Some artists just make you feel. It’s not just cords on a guitar or beats on a drum. It’s the way it’s presented it the FEELING, THE EMOTION the PASION. ROCK N ROLL is a way of life for many and for these guys they are self-appointed ambassadors for the old guard of SEX DRUGS AND ROCK N ROLL. Very proud ones at that.

After the show that made Cherry Colas just throb and gush with ROCK N ROLL emotion. I got a chance to interview The Celtic Outlaws upstairs at the NEW ROCK N ROLLA ROOM. The Rock N Rolla Room is a dream brought to life by Cherish Stevenson owner to THE SEXIEST LIVE MUSIC VENUE IN TORONTO more commonly know as CHERRY COLAS. Now the Sexiest Air B & B in Toronto I am sure! Cherish even joined us as part of this informal but very fun chat with these GTA Music Heros. P.S. Have a look at Johnnys Face while Cherish is sitting beside him SO FUN. Don’t do it Johnny don’t look to your left!!

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.

11 Things Millennial Musicians Just Don’t Get

I can’t tell you how many artists I see on Spotify with hundreds of thousands or millions of streams, but can’t get even 100 out to their local (or any) shows. Or get anyone to back their crowdfunding campaign. Or support them in any way whatsoever. These listeners are not fans of the artists, they are fans of the playlist these songs got included on. You must understand this new world of streaming we are in. 10 million plays ain’t impressive anymore. Know what is impressive? Bottom lines.
