Two trustworthy companies coming together to help the Music Industry strive!
Good morning and Happy Thoughts ! Today I would like to share a special Edition for Radio Indie FreeForm for you with #TRSV (The Rising Star Ventures) and the #IndieAmpMovement…as some of you know, I was very busy lately, and I just do not know where my time is going, but this was an inner urgency to write about the subject ARTISTS AND DEPRESSION; especially, about the news we have lately about musicians who ended their life tragically. So I would like to share this article to the “I.A.M.” Indie Amp Movement.
These news reminded me of some of the encounters I had throughout my life, especially working with the band. Everyone deals different with their frustrations. Artists are right brain oriented (you can google this) and many times it is impossible for them to accept their own failures or those of the society we are living in. Depression can be a debilitating condition, a warning sign, a cry for help and reacting irresponsible to their loved ones and friends. Instead of self destruction, not only seeking for help, but using your ART and MOTIVATION and GOALS to heal your emotional wounds.
Maybe the enclosed video can help you to be steered into the right direction, and please look for help … I have many facebook friends who feel so disillusioned …. I give you all a big hug …https://youtu.be/KSTKheVpEq4

This week’s hip hop jazz composition is entitled, “Putting on the RIFF!” The word “RIFF;” is an acronym that means, RADIO INDIE FREE FORM, and means that the radio station that is playing music is using a free form format made up of Independent artists. I am an independent artist, as are other familiar artists, such as Ingrid Smith, Tiffany Gow, James Harrison Bacon, and many others who are now frequently heard on the Internet stations hosted by Dawn Martinez and by Philippe E. Maille.
However, Dawn Martinez has specifically dedicated her new station to encompass more than just the music. During a recent interview, she told us about her station:
“RIFF—A Solar Powered Internet Radio Station that streams the glitz and glamour of Independent Indie Artists Internationally. RIFF’s mission is to promote, broadcast, educate, and build fan base for the artists of the Indie rhythmic beat, while using fewer commercials. Over thirty genre’s garnish the Internet Airwaves as Independent Music expresses itself freely. Radio Indie FreeForm is a non-profit organization blending together with Ahames.org Charity, and like-minded people.”
Thank you, Dawn for such a super concept! So, in honor of the RIFF movement, I give you, “Putting on the RIFF!” I arranged, mixed and play Alto Sax, and the Passion HiFi provided the backing.
Have a listen to Putting On The RIFF by Jack Scannell where the marvelous artist showcases his snazzy music.

Who is a true friend?
In my own experience and modest understanding of such friendships, a true friend, who is worth living for, is a friend, who must be able to call on my actions if they are hurtful or thoughtless.
He/she must be able to point toward my sense of self-responsibility and not support me blindly.
My true friend must always stand up for the truth, and not stand up for my irrationality out of a sense of obligation in the name of “friendship”.
A true friend to me is one, who can show me my error, without fearing the guilt-trip I might burden him/her with for not standing by “me” regardless.
For you see, standing up for the truth and not condoning my irrational, illogical behavior, does not mean he/she does not stand by me. On the contrary, he/she, does, more than ever, because they are fearless in their love for me, unconditional in their trust in me, and have confidence in my ability to see reason and come into awareness and insight through right action and thought, eventually.
And during this process, they hold the space for me, instead of turning away from me.
Such is a true friend I can personally trust. Such is a friend, worth living for and learning from, in turn being a true friend myself.
Relationships are all about helping each other grow, not keeping each other stagnated in blind love and faith without question.
Just sharing for the joy of sharing. Please share your thoughts too as and when guided.
