StreetcredMusic: Lots of Women Play Piano, Pt 1. Kayce Laine and Carole King

 The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700 (the exact year is uncertain), in which the strings are struck by wooden hammers that are coated with a softer material (modern hammers are covered with dense wool felt; some early pianos used leather). It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys (small levers) that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings.

The word piano is a shortened form of pianoforte

Not only do you want to leave the audience wanting more, 

you want to leave yourself wanting more. Carole King

Get to know the artists I support and work with. That's the purpose of this blog. If you know them you will probably take more interest in them and their work, that's the mission here. #Support.  Non profit support.

So take a look here at a familiar face  Kayce Laine an original #Pianowoman. Four years now after the first #Pianowomen shoot, we got together to see what's been going on in her life.


We did not know it but just days after we were in New York City shooting this, Covid devastated the area we were staying in. Kayce went back to Nashville and spent a week with a flu like illness. Me I got lucky I guess, I was fine.

StreetcredMusic: Alessia Ramusino, Cezara Lucia Vladescu. "To See You Naked Is To Remember The Earth, The Smooth Earth"

 To see you naked is to remember the Earth, 
   the smooth Earth, clean of horses
      the Earth without reeds, pure form
         closed to the future, confine of silver. ...Federico Garcia Lorka

Video...HERE.."Nuda" by Alessia Ramusino 

Alessia Ramusino

Alessia Ramusino was born in Genoa.

She began traveling when she was only 20 days old, thanks to her father’s job as a geologist. He was transferred to Iran and the whole family lived there for the larger part of Alessia’s childhood. She kept travelling, living in several countries, such as Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and the United States of America, thus enabling her to get in touch with different people, languages, religions, traditions and ways of life and creating in her the necessity to find a common language that could overcome the ethnic differences. This is the reason why Alessia chooses the English language to write the lyrics of her songs.

Piano Styles

 “What has keys but can’t listen to the beauty it unlocks? A piano.”

Champian Fulton:
  Born in Oklahoma, Champian is considered one of the most gifted pure Jazz musicians of her generation. She grew up with music in the home; her mother and father (Jazz trumpeter and educator Stephen Fulton) recognized her fascination with music at an early age. The presence of her father’s musician friends, including Clark Terry and Major Holley, inspired her focus on Jazz. Her first paid musical engagement was with her own band at Clark Terry’s 75th Birthday Party; she was 10 years old.

StreetcredMusic: Rita Castor on Patreon, An Op/Ed

Open Letter To: Musicians
    Re: Patreon

I ran the indiemusician route for several years. Now I'm established in the music biz as a teacher. No, not teaching music or voice, teaching how to run a music business. A business of one or a full band, you must create an income from your product. Business #101.

I want to talk about Patreon. I myself have received several communications from musicians I know to join Patreon, and literally help support them financially.

I feel sad that they have asked me to do this. Sad because I know they are all being taken advantage of by venue owners who will not pay them for their gigs. Venue owners who are literally stealing from them, and profiting from their labors.

Of course the obvious solution is for all musicians to demand a payment for their gigs.
But egos won't allow them to put themselves in demand. That's a subject for a more serious time.

I am also a bit insulted that I'm being ask to give money, when they give their talent away, so venue owners can make hundreds if not thousands of dollars while they are on stage.

Summing up, what you are doing is asking your fans, who buy your music, come to see you, buy a drink or two, maybe some food, gas money, travel money, to also give you a monthly salary.
While the bar is full at anywhere from $10 to $14 dollars a drink, and they give you nothing.
Have you considered how it feels to get a request like that?
