...I can't tell you what it's like when Dave and I
find out someone doesn't know who David Gray is,
it's like a little piece of me dies.
For me it goes deeper than the fact that someone doesn't like one of my favorite artists. When I find out someone hasn't heard of an artist as talented as David Gray and yet someone like Katy Perry is about to have the number one selling album of all time...it saddens me.
...and this isn't just because I'm married to a very talented musican.
I have always felt this way.
I'd rather support someone who has put blood, sweat, and tears into making sure that their music can be heard. Even if just by a few. Those that put their heart and soul into every word, every strum of their guitar. The musicians that are willing to put it all on the line and go for their dreams, without the assurance of ever making it to the other side.
...David Gray is one of those artists.
So this Music Monday, I just ask that you take a listen
and consider supporting the artists that put their life into their work.
