Do you become someone different when you are playing music?

Do you become someone different when you are playing music? Or is it a different part of you than the business side? My answer is ‘yes’.do you become someone different when you are playing music, airplane, ed verner

Do you become someone different when you are playing music?

This question was asked of me by a friend as we were discussing a recent podcast of mine. At first the answer sounded shallow and predictable to me, though correct. But as I thought on the subject a bit longer, there were some layers that cascaded down unto the question as I delved into it a bit deeper.

Well of course when I play my music it is still me – and the songs I’ve written represent slices of my mind and/or my heart so again it is still me. And yet, the act of my being myself in a leadership role amongst my business interests and the act of my being myself at the keys of a grand piano playing a song of mine are VERY disparate acts indeed.

The urge to have myself known for my music has been an ever-present and lifelong recipe for pain, humility, and energy drain for me. But one of the greatest compliments I can have is for someone to hear a song of mine and like it without ever knowing who wrote it, or sang it. The same thing may happen often with ideas of mine in the business world, but “success” is defined differently there.

Do you become someone different when you are playing music? How about when you are running a business?

I think of leading a business is a bit like being the captain of a vessel and crew during a storm, or perhaps like being a coach of a children’s soccer team. Perhaps that is why so many self-help books on leadership in business find apt source material in either the Navy or in the sports world. But the relationship between a songwriter and someone who hears the music is one nearly opposite at times when contrasted to the pyramid of leadership in an organization.

Effective leaders at times must create a separation between themselves and those they mean to inspire and have authority over – while simultaneously allowing them to gain faith and appreciation of YOU.

Whereas as a musician I often find myself reducing walls, gaining comfort with vulnerability, and allowing myself to wither and disappear entirely until all that remains is a song, or a melody; disconnected and separated from any aspect of “I” such that it may be taken in by another – I must have the “I” disappear until a “you” can take it in and make it their own “I”.

Do you become someone different when you are playing music? Switching channels in a way…

There are many types of businessmen, and likely many of them may be musicians at some level or another. But I think the singer-songwriter type of musicians among those business leaders are frequently going to have a bit of a “channel switching” mode if they take a stage to play a song they have written.

Post Script for the Do you become someone different when you are playing music blog:

Another good and related question I think would be to ask if a Diva type singer or spot-light crooner hound type vocalist and a successful business leader have to change who they are when going from one mode to another? I suspect the answer there is how they are more akin than a singer-songwriter would be to either of them.

Musical Pothole filling. Romancing existing creativity.

An interesting little game to play happens sometimes when I mix and match instrumental music of mine with visual images and great film making work.

Musical pothole filling. for example…

If you follow this link to an instrumental piano work of mine at https://soundcloud.com/ed-verner/the-bone-in-her-teeth for the soundtrack, and then also follow this next link https://youtu.be/0XofM8S-kJo to the first 2:05 seconds of YouTube video of a fantastically beautiful modern interpretation of a classic vintage sailing gaff rigged schooner – mute the video sound and engage my audio song and waah laah – a music editor revisited.

Musical pothole filling…in reverse.

Sometimes this little game of mine plays out in reverse in that I see something beautiful or emotionally stirring for me in a film or a piece of photography and I find myself conjuring up a musical melody for it. And even more often I may witness a moment in a major film where something beautiful visually is accompanied by musical kitsch on the verge of being crap – and the irony of visual beauty in concert with auditory ear vomit can also drive me into a creative mode. Much like how I enjoy fixing things that are broken, or restoring things that have been abandoned I like to create music where the need for it is on full display in the contrary example.

There is something romantic in the musical creative art when it is put to the task of filling a void; or in some cases I would call it fixing a pothole in the road of life. Now it may not be the romance of lovers, or the back seat of a car at a drive in type of love-rut… but writing music in that frame of mind is indeed romantic.

Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year – A good single Malt Scotch

I’ve met more than a few people over the years who have said, “Eck, I don’t like Scotch” and yet also readily admit they have never really tried a good one. Now I can certainly agree how Scotch, or alcohol for that matter, is not for everyone, but sometimes I feel, it should be sampled and given a chance.

And I also embrace with gusto how there is a reason that we have chocolate AND vanilla flavored ice cream. I.E. different strokes for different folks. But so too I think one should not turn away from an entire buffet just because they tried a tiny taste of the first item. And there are a robust variety of flavors inside the category of “Scotch” whiskey.

Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year. The first aroma.

Speaking (actually I’m writing) for myself and my wife, we have both come to appreciate the kind first aroma and lingering gentle approach found in the Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year – aged partly in traditional oak whiskey casks, and finished off in first run European oak sherry casks. The result is a soft, sweet aroma wafting around a genuine Speyside Scotch experience. And many a scoffing former Scotch critic has had to eat their words of derision when given a chance at this gentle invader.

Balvenie DoubleWood 12 Year – After the recording session.

After a good recording session has been accomplished, and particularly if friend Dan Gallagher is in the room to celebrate with us, I enjoy pulling out a Balvenie Doublewood 12 and celebrating a toast to the muse, the producer, and the joy of being a recording artist.

Mutiny on the Bounty or in the recording studio

Mutiny on the Bounty or in the recording studio – Metaphorically speaking of course…
Mutiny on the bounty

Mutiny on the Bounty or in the studio…

Now not long ago, I posted a thought attacking the glorifying of pirates. And now I learn that today is the anniversary of the Mutiny on the Bounty. While not an act of piracy, mutiny is another nautical event that can occur metaphorically inside the music studio.

Mutiny on the Bounty: Captain Bligh… not the nicest guy?

Several film adaptations of the story regarding the Bounty have been made over the years, and historians have disagreed over time as to whether or not Captain Bligh was a cruel tyrant who deserved being cast off of his command or not. So too, there has been debate as to whether or not the acting Lieutenant Fletcher Christian who seized command was justified. But there is little disagreement how, in the end, it was a miserable affair for all concerned.

Mutiny on the Bounty or mutiny in the studio…comparisons.

Now while one might argue that making music is not near so serious as captaining and piloting a 90 foot long 230 ton armed full rigged ship with a crew of 45 across the oceans, but one would be wrong… bah hah. But indeed making music is VERY serious to the one who wrote it, and generally very serious to those involved in bringing it to life in a studio. As a singer songwriter there must be a bit of the captain in me when I take a song into a studio, and yet some of the best work on my songs comes out because of the producer, and/or due to the talent of someone totally unexpected. Conversely, if I am a butt-wipe with a bad attitude any one of those people who have something brilliant to contribute might simply “mutiny” by withholding their idea or by simply packing up their instrument and telling me to piss off.

In a recording studio the price for mutiny is not hanging, and the stakes may not be life and death, but for the unborn song or the song taken to partial term, the results may indeed be the same as those of the poor Bounty and her crew; loss of the ship, division and suffering of the crew, casting aside of the merchandise so carefully gathered and stored before the disagreement exploded, and other sad losses are still a shame.

Most common symptoms that will lead to the Mutiny on the bounty scenario.

Any mutiny, be it aboard a ship, or in a music studio is ultimately a fatal disease whose symptoms of bad communication, inappropriate loyalty and inappropriate leadership in concert, and poorly handled anxiety have been ignored one moment too long.

Final Note:

Dancing With The Wind” is the perfect backdrop to listen to while at work and wasting time looking up the Mutiny on the Bounty story on the internet instead of doing your real job. Just sayin…

Earth Day with my take and logic. No Lyrics or Lullabies here.

Earth Day with my take and logic. No Lyrics or Lullabies here.
earth day, ed verner, earth, lyrics logic lullabies

Earth Day – Hmm what a catchy title.

I’m not exactly sure how I feel about “Earth Day”.   It has an Orwellian ring to it.

Earth Day and the footprints we leave.

As someone who used to enjoy backpacking, I’m all in favor of being conscious of your ‘footprint’ when enjoying nature (the old pack out what you take in sense of personal responsibility).  And I believe in certain materials being recycled, such as most metals, and glass.  And I applaud the urge to recycle when the energy gained is greater than the energy expended to accomplish it.  But when I hear that “Earth Day” has become the world’s largest ‘secular’ celebration, the hair on my neck stands up just a tad.  And then sometimes when I encounter certain believers in Global Warming, or its predecessor Global Ice Age, etc., and hear of technical data tampering to further an agenda of power or a move towards global governance, I cringe again.

Earth Day and the righteousness

I am a big believer in thoughtful righteous stewardship of the land and the animals that live on it and make up frequent ingredients in the diet that sustains me.  But sometimes I encounter illogical people who wear T-shirts manufactured in China (one of the worlds worst polluters) that espouse some “save the planet” mantra of the new age and as I read and hear about “Earth Day” I sort of feel like it might have more than the average infestation of well-meaning, but illogical and irrational people clinging to it.

What does Earth day have to do with my music?

Absolutely nothing.  God Bless.

Celebrity Bullying & Broken Promises. My take on it.

Celebrity Bullying & Broken Promises. My take on it.
celebrity bullying, lyrics logic lullabies, ed verner, sunset

Celebrity bullying & broken promises. My take on it.

Now some notable celebrities are canceling concerts to call attention to their preferences regarding human “rights” or political issues.  And yet these same celebrities are often quoted as saying how they are against bullying.  They fail to see or have any acknowledgement of the similarities between an elementary school bully and their own behaviors.  This seems like celebrity bullying to me. Basically their pitch is something along the lines of, “Do as I say, now, and believe as I believe now, or I will punish you.”  Or “bring your opinion to bear on this subject in agreement with me, or I will punish you.”

Celebrity Bullying with aggressive opinions.

Sometimes people of great fame have also taken to threatening to leave their country of origin unless a certain outcome occurs… really?  How patriotic of you.  If the country by and large doesn’t agree with your SOLITARY opinion and/or a majority opposes you then you won’t consider their view or consider the fact that YOU may be wrong, but rather you will pick up your toys and go “home” to another location?

Now don’t get me wrong, I applaud people who have strong convictions and who are willing to alter their life to stand up for something they believe.  I applaud people who are willing to attempt to foster positive change and/or to shine a light upon an issue – I even applaud those convictions and actions when I may personally disagree because at least the person is willing to sacrifice a portion of their fame to amplify their message.

Celebrity bullying through concert cancellations?

BUT – to cancel a concert for all of your fans in an area is to break a promise you made to them – it is to breach a trust they placed in you regarding your art and your ability to entertain or bring joy, and to replace it instead with political discourse and a broken promise.  Forgetting for the moment the arrogance and pride-gone-awry at the source of the breach, just focus on the fact of a broken promise.

To be an artist is to desire to have your art create a bridge between you and someone out there (unknowable to you) and the bridge requires trust (sometimes misplaced indeed).  Don’t burn that bridge! If you are lucky enough to have a fan base of any kind based on music or the arts and you choose to bully them with withdrawal, I hope you get what bullies on the playground deserve.

Beauty and warmth of Bass. How it adds magic to music.

Beauty and warmth of Bass. The magic, the musicality and the depth.beauty and warmth of bass, ed verner, lyircs logic lullabies

Beauty and warmth of Bass. The Cello Neighbor.

The 3rd instrument I ever learned to play was the cello – and I loved it. The tonal range and the position of the cello generally in front of the double-bass players in an orchestra allowed me to wallow in the lower tones from an early age. And that swimming in the deep end feeling of the music down there immediately translated into my piano playing and style; taking my hands an octave lower to find a sweet spot in my music there.

Beauty and warmth of Bass. A different approach than drums.

Now recently I wrote on the subject of drummers and percussion and my respect for how they add unexpected and wonderful things to many of my singer-songwriter style songs. So much better too in how it actually changes a creation sometimes. And while this may be true as regards bass and really good bass players, for me what these players more often do to a song is sometimes to give it EXACTLY what I expected. I say that not because a good bass player doesn’t create something fresh and talented in ways that I don’t or can’t, but rather in how good bass playing in a singer-songwriter song is like blood in a mammal.

It just is – and to a point, the more the better. When bass gets added to a song of mine, it frequently just adds balls, power, and subliminal rhythms which are already ghost notes in the ear of a listener. Frequently it feels like the song was just coming through an old tiny battery powered transistor AM radio and suddenly after the bass is added it sounds like it is live players 12 feet away in a nice wooden room.

Beauty and warmth of bass… and those rare moments… 

Now the contrary is rare, but every now and then it happens that a bass player botches it and brings not the guts and ghost notes, but rather jams a bookend not on the end of the books in line, but rather between them and thus makes a hell of a mess on the bookshelf.

But this is rare.

Most times, the bass is like the curve of a beautiful woman’s hind end. Yeah she may have a beautiful face, nice smile, long hair, and a lovely sleeveless dress, but the picture may be incomplete if it doesn’t end well (smile). So too a good song that lacks good work from a bass player and possible bad choices, that is not fully ready for the spotlight.

Top three phases of drummers. Most commonly seen drumming styles.

Top three phases of drummers. Most commonly seen drumming styles.top three phases of drummers, pearl drums, ed verner, lyrics logic and lullabies

Top three phases of drummers. Yes, I am going there.

As a singer-songwriter of generally mellow story telling songs, I have come to greatly appreciate the art and rarity inside great drumming. When it comes to drummers, I have had three distinct phases of past experiences:

 

Top Three phases of Drummers: Phase 1

The High School Phase – This is where teenage boys attempt to relieve their frustration and try to prove their “manhood” by beating wildly and savagely on their tortured and poor quality drum set (failing miserably at both). This phase for me was marked by my gaining a real appreciation as to how much noise and songwriting arrest drums are capable of making.   Also in this phase one can observe how drummers work very hard, often creating a sheen of sweat which is strangely and inexplicably attractive to certain females.

Top Three phases of Drummers: Phase 2

 

The Young Adult Phase – This period is marked by an increase in the player’s skill and a rise in instrument quality, combined unfortunately with an overwhelming urge to be recognized and identified with both. In this phase, any song to receive “the treatment” becomes a magic carpet upon which the drums can rise to the top “where it belongs”. Amplifiers become a necessity for every other instrument and the vocals. Even a concert grand piano, capable of going toe to toe with a full orchestra and brass, needs to be amplified now to remind anyone in the audience that the song has a melody.

Top three phases of Drummers: Phase 3

The Artist Phase – This is the high altitude rare air of high orbit wherein a truly gifted, mature, and artistic drummer/percussionist adds something to any song that very often people remain unaware of through their first 10 or more listens. After a while, a song that people truly love gets heard enough to where they find themselves doing the drum part on their dashboards, or air-drumming with glee to the one or two signature licks that define the rhythm which now they cannot live without.

Now all joking aside…

I must admit to how I’ve grown to appreciate a very nearly identical track of progress in gifted piano players I admire; or in saxophone, or guitar, or just about any melodic instrument of difficulty. And I’ve occasionally caught myself playing “too much” of the song on my piano when I am going to take it from my coffee-house original incarnation into a studio cut, etc.

But one of the wonderful things I’ve grown to appreciate about drums in a singer-songwriter production is how now I am eager now to hear what a drummer (an artistic and gifted one) will bring to something I’m at a loss to conjure in my own head. And I’ve come to appreciate how really “drums” is very much a plural thing. Talk about multi-tasking; cymbals, toms, snare drums, hi hat, and then the gamut of percussion instruments really can make your head spin. And of course judicious use of cymbals and the fine line between noise and juicy emotion you can’t explain is an art unto itself.   I’ve enjoyed having an already “full” song actually sound less crowded after 10 tracks of drumming and percussion are ADDED to it and that dynamic is a strange and beautiful irony to behold.

And while I personally pick number 3 of the top three phases of drummers, I am happy to say that even in the simplest ballad I create now, I long for and appreciate a good drummer that is an artist, aware and understanding of my music.

Would you like free music from me?

Would you like free music from me? Not an option and here is why.

would you like free music, airplane, lyrics logic and lullabies
Above Image is free Use with out restriction from The New York Public Library Digital Collections.

Would you like free music from me?

Just because I love making my music, does not mean I will give it to you for free. Really, you should be ashamed of yourself for asking. Now, if I choose to, I may gift it to someone for reasons that give me pleasure, or to gain exposure to a larger body of work of mine in hopes of being more successful, etc. But for anyone to have the automatic expectation of getting good quality art for free, is to further a dark and sad mantra, namely:

“When all art is free, it will be worth what you paid for it.”

A corollary to this for me is how I will always endeavor to pay anyone who collaborates with me on a song or artistic project. It may not be much, but I will always try to make some payment. And any payment is infinitely more than zero.

Would you like free music from me: Does that request consider the artist?

This applies in so many areas of life in how many people believe that if someone is blessed to do something they love for a living, they should be able to give it away – as if the joy of doing should be enough for them. What a crock of manure. I have a dentist who genuinely loves fixing, removing, and sloshing around with teeth. And when I have dental pain I am damned glad he not only loves doing it, but that he is in the BUSINESS of doing what he loves. Good for him, and when he makes a pain go away, I am a happy guy to be able to pay him.

Would you like free music from me? Well, if there is a fair barter in place, then I think it is ok. 

Sure there are times when a barter system applies in music. And is one of the only times it would be right to answer yes to the question, would you like free music? There are times when someone says they will play on a song of mine, if I will play piano on a song of theirs, and sometimes I will agree, or other times I may decide to pay them, and then ask for the same rate later if their song ever gets an instrument add on from my fingers, etc.

But I’m not speaking here of people in the industry of making art. I’m talking about how many people (who can’t play or write chopsticks) somehow feel they are entitled to listen to and download astoundingly good music or art for free. And how they often may find a song, avoid buying it, and spend 30 minutes figuring out how to snatch it for free… Buddy, 30 minutes of your time to download the software to become a thief/pirate is worth more than the 99 cents you could have supported the artist by buying it in the first place. Wake up douche-bag.

Do you lose your keys? Or are you the type doesn’t?

Do you lose your keys? Or are you the type doesn’t?
do you lose your keys, ed verner, lyrics logic lullabies

Do you lose your keys? Or are you the type doesn’t?

There are two types of people; those who lose keys and those who don’t. I’ve learned there are redeeming features in either type. But as one of the “I never lose my keys” people, I sometimes have had to adapt and create sympathy in myself towards those who “misplace” important things. At times, I can’t believe it and see how someone else could. At the end of each day for me, I place my things in a particular place, and will easily find them each morning as my next day begins. If I am traveling, I generally create a new habit for each hotel room, and practically never misplace something.

When I arrived at my office this morning in the dim coming dawn of the morning, as is my habit, I could arrange the keys on my key ring in my hand as I was walking up the stairs without even looking at them. By the time I got to the office door, key in hand and ready to open it, it hit me afresh just how long I have been carrying that particular key ring. And then as I flicked on the lights and reached my office, it occurred to me how routine is my unlocking my desk and filing cabinets. I noticed how the keys for each are over 10 years old and rubbed clean in certain spots due to long-time use.

Do you lose your keys…or do you misplace other peoples keys?

On the flip side is how discombobulated I can become if my keys and things are taken out of the usual place during house cleaning, or by one of my children for some reason or another. So in this case, sometimes I feel my answer would still be no to someone asking, do you lose your keys. Because they were moved by someone else!

I usually can conduct a successful search and rescue mission for them, but to see my “place” disrupted by someone (particularly if it is someone who frequently loses their keys and things) can be briefly troublesome to me.

Do you lose your keys and is this a born or taught thing?

I don’t know exactly how the habit of careful tending of important things for long periods gets instilled. Is it born, or is it taught? I wish I knew. For I’ve met highly successful people who are otherwise bumbling idiots as regards their wallet, or keys, or hotel room cards, etc. And I’ve met neurotic dunces who have carried the same pocket knife for 25 years. So I don’t mean to pass judgement here. But I think by middle youth (puberty) someone has become one or the other of these two types of people. And if you are a key loser, one that answers yes to the question, do you lose your keys, well, then for heaven’s sake make a dozen copies of your keys when you get a new apartment, or automobile. And if you are a key-master then take care not to let your territorial prerogative regarding your ‘things’ take precedent over the people in your life who matter more than any ‘thing’.
