Euro Americana Chart is not a business; it’s just an initiative that draws some attention to musicians and their music. EAC is not in it for the money. We only play this part because we love life, and we like some good ol’ music. Music can color our lives. Same as I believe in honest music, I believe in opportunities. I love creative initiatives.
KickStarter gives possibilities to creative, artistic minds. Secondly it reaches out to all those who are willing to support these ideas financially; YOU! Using this simple method it creates backbone to pursue all sorts of ideas. EAC only take the possibility to highlight some of these independent artists. We hope that sharing some attention will help to achieve our musical friends their goal.
In 1986 I was on a train in Cuzco, Peru that was blown up by terrorists. It killed the people I was sitting with. I had a cut artery, brain damage, blown in ear drums and should have died but I didn’t. I tried to figure out what it means to be blown up- to survive when others die. I wrote a lot. It was mostly drivel. But with the drivel came songs. They were mostly about other people. Kids having kids, old people, drunks in love, a barber with no nose, strangers, friends, and lovers. But there were also songs about getting blown up.
My first record was mercy. It came out in 2004. In 2007 pretty world was released and in 2009 cotton. They formed a rough trilogy that I later called the mercy trilogy. The big theme was: everyone is at the mercy of another one’s dream
This record, the one I need money to release, is called say grace. It is the same as the other records but different. Just like life. The same but different.
