Hey Neil Young! My iPod already plays full uncompressed WAV files.

This week Neil Young mentioned that he is working on a digital audio player that will play back high resolution files. At the Dive into Media Conference he said that he had spoken with Steve Jobs about the concept before Jobs died in Oct. 2011. I guess Jobs forgot to tell him that iPods and iPhones already support High Resolution files. I'd suggest that Young should be building an iTunes competitor that sells full resolution WAV files with a download manager to assist in downloading the larger data overnight.

Aderra worked hard in 2011 to bring new Media to the Masses

Doing a quick yearend wrap up and I am amazed at what we did that worked at concerts this year.

I didn't post much during the last half of 2011 as I got a little too busy at Aderra. I finished the year even more strongly convinced that DIY Direct to Fan is a limited route to success for most artists. Performers, producers and songwriters put their 10,000 hours into honing their craft NOT becoming marketing experts. So why take on a bunch tasks you're not skilled at?
Spend 2012 working on this:

  • Write great songs
  • Practice performing those tunes live
  • TOUR
  • Make friends with other acts
  • CDs are for old people, don't waste your time and money making them
  • Forget about record labels, they'll find you when you're ready
