Social media text

@Blackmoremedia1 was my main one. Then I started @davidblackmoremusic to have one just for self advertising and music stuff. And @mindfulminuteswithmusicians just for the podcast but since the pandemic I’ve been doing a lot of introspective thinking and pivoting and making the most of life. The reason I started this podcast, created a website and am starting a pivot.
Thanks everyone so much for reading, following and being a part of the journey.

Need Music?

Hey blog readers, and whoever else has come across this. I’m wondering if you or anyone you know is interested in music for their blog or podcasts. I want to be a part of your process and can create custom music. Check out the Awesome Intro Music page and have a listen at the few tracks I have up there. I’m currently in the process of writing new stuff for myself, but can take the time to make some new tracks for you as well.

Appreciate The Process

For a while I had wanted to be a part of a radio show or involved in something like that. I took Radio Broadcasting in college and never really got into radio just because of the lack of jobs for on air talent, especially for anyone who was new to the industry. I am also in love with music and the music creation process and wanted to be involved in that as well. I ended up finding a career in the tech side of live entertainment and was able to live out those dreams of being back stage or on the stage at the concerts and festivals. As the pandemic has effected millions around the globe, I too was effected in work. I knew that there had to be something that I could still bring and do even while there was ZERO live events happening.

That’s when I started MINDFUL MINUTES WITH MUSICIANS. the podcast where I was able to take the skills that I had learned years ago in college and apply them to my very own podcast. It has definitely not been an easy process in any stretch of the imagination. There were a lot of ideas that I had and had to focus it down in on something. And mindfulness was that thing that I believed a lot of people want to learn or find out how others are doing it. I too wanted to find out what others were doing during these hard times so that I was able to adapt and make the most of things.

The first few episodes were really what was needed to get this off the ground, and as I got more and more guests and went through the process of what I want to focus on and how I wanted to frame the show. I was able to make subtle changes to refine the show as each episode progressed. I am so appreciative to everyone who has been a part of this process. Along the way there’s been bumps. I’ve missed appointments to record new episodes and I’ve gone through a number of different technical difficulties along the way; cameras dying during the show, music not playing and mispronouncing things. My setup and how it is edited has changed a few times as well.

The main thing that keeps it going is the want to share peoples stories. I think that there are so many things that we learn from each other on a day to day basis that this is another way to harness that. I have had the pleasure to talk to so many different artists who not only play or have an appreciation for music but also have amazing stories and experiences to share. If you have taken the time to read this post, I hope that you take time to go through some of the episodes as there is for sure something in there that is a takeaway. I appreciate you and thank you.

Create your own inspiration

When I started years ago I really wanted to be a part of production. I really wanted to be behind the scenes and also create some amazing stuff that people are intrigued about. I feel now that the best way to get to the place that you want to be is to take the small steps towards that goal. It may not lead you exactly to where you imagine, but it will lead you to a place where you will feel good about the decisions you’ve made. Or at least you will feel like you are getting closer to your end goal. Life is about constantly trying to achieve these goals we set for ourselves. Just make sure that you are going after the goals you are setting.

Looking towards the Future

Hey, I really appreciate you taking the time to have a look through my site. I am here to offer up not just some amazing online broadcasting live stream realness. I am also here to write intro and outro music for your podcasts, to help you conceptualize the online experience you are going to be giving out to the world. I really want to help you with that. Lets move into the future of events together!
