Steve Carlson:: The Most beautiful Music I Never Heard
Steve Carlson, an amazing find...
For those of you who already know who he is, how could you keep this to yourself? I can't believe all these years of listening to the radio in the car, I had no idea who Steve Carlson was or what he sounded like, or even that he existed, until last week.
I discovered so much in a week with just the click of the mouse, an accidental click at that.
I am a big Leverage fan, but I didn't know Christian Kane was a musician until a little over a week ago. Here's what happened, I saw a 30 second or so clip on YouTube of Christian Kane singing a few bars of "The Dance" which looked like karaoke.
I had run across a movie with Christian Kane in it, which led me to ask what else he'd done, which lead me to the song clip, which lead me to Steve Carlson... They have a band together.
So Here's Steve Carlson:
This one touched me so deeply.
How did I miss this?
I have been working too much to know I wasn't really living, ya know? I have spent the last 20 years working 12 hour days, sometimes even 7 days a week. The last five years have been a roller coaster ride, where I didn't get to watch TV unless it was on demand, so I can see why I would miss out on 20 years worth of actors...
I listen to the radio every day, and not just one station, I listen to different types of music... How did I miss this?
With that in mind I decided that if I had missed out on Christian Kane and Steve Carlson, then perhaps you have too. More than this, what else have we missed out on? And why?
Of course, you know, this investigative reporter will find those answers, oh yes...
Please have a listen
Maybe The Clue is in The Song
We are all islands aren't we. We stick with our friends but mostly we feel as though we are out here alone. Even in a crowd we are alone. We have our job, our family, our life, and we are so careful not to get close to anyone. It's so easy to stay away from the neighbors, all the doors and blinds are closed.
Time was that when you walked down the street in any given neighborhood there would be people in their yards and driveways, kids playing in the street. There would be cars with the windows down, or the top down, sometimes sitting in the middle of the road talking window to window, with the stereo on. This was before people got totally obnoxious with PA speakers and boosters in their trunks so that the car vibrates down the street rather than actually running on gasoline.
In the old days you'd hear music everywhere you went, and say "Hey, who is that?" without fear, and with pride their fans would tell you.
Before Twitter and Facebook and Myspace, people used to come over to your house with a new CD and say "Wait til you hear this!" They would call you on the phone and ask if you'd heard this new song.
See, in the music business, or any business really, it's all about the advertising.
Promotion is key, and the best kind of promotion is word of mouth. You can have your Facebook page, or Myspace or Twitter, but without people sharing it with others, you have nothing.
People must be afraid of looking spammy or something. If it's great then share it, retweet it! Truly you must know that if you do not promote your favorite bands or singers or TV shows, if you don't tell your friends about your favorite restaurants then they will go out of business...

So, here we are
Usually I try to apply everything I do here to help the Hub writer as well. Here's the latest news... If you do nothing to promote others then you will take a very long time in getting promoted yourself.
Christian Kane and Steve Carlson are a team. They promote each other. I only learned about Steve because he backs up Christian Kane. Steve Carlson has his own band and his own songs, and when Christian Kane performs one of Steve's songs he gives the man credit on stage.
One of our up and coming Hubbers here, Edweirdo, proved that by going above and beyond the call of duty to help promote a group during the 60 day challenge started by Sunforged, the whole group benefits. He made his first adsense payout with Hub Pages because of his participation. I messed up and missed out, but that's not what is important. What is important is that you know the secret of your success in any place in life is completely dependent on the success of others.
Hear this: You define your own success, but no matter what your definition of success is, you will never achieve it alone. You must choose to help others achieve their success, you must choose to allow others to help you achieve your success.
Success is never going to be something you can buy on the internet in a package with costs between $1.00 trial and $2500.00 for the complete foolproof system. Success is something you acquire as you help someone else achieve it.
Think about that time you got help with your science project (or refused help out of pride). The proof of success is not when you get there, it's the trip you take to get there and the people along the way.
Please do your part to promote Steve Carlson.

Steve Carlson and partner Darren Sher have also started their own production company to help other artists along the way. This guy is just so busy...
The production company is called The Sound Parlor.
You don't have to tell him I sent you. I just can't believe I missed all this great music for so long. Maybe you could do me a favor, and when you find someone really great, you could write about them or write to me so that I can check them out, and then I can write about them too.
I mean, good music is like salt, Life has no flavor without it. For more songs and videos, you can check out my Steve Carlson playlist on YouTube
Just for Fun. That's him, in the background on Eastwick
