Let There be Better Music!

September 10th, 2008 by Rob Osborn

I just wanted to tell both of you about something exciting! As you may or may not know, Andrew Peterson finished recording a new album early this spring. Instead of releasing it right away, he decided to shop it around and see if anyone was interested in distributing it. A label called Centricity Music decided to pick it up, and the album will finally be released nationwide in October.

While this is exciting news in it’s own right, even more exciting is the fact that (at least for now) Centricity has put the entire album up for preview in an online jukebox! That’s right…you can check it out in it’s entirety for free! Click here to give it a listen!

As you probably know, Andrew has been my favorite songwriter for many years. As much as i’ve loved each and every record he’s done, this one is probably the best (i’ve only listened through it twice, but my first impressions are strong!).

Don’t miss the chance to preview the record…and please, support it when it’s released! As a culture we can’t afford to let music like this be overlooked and under-supported.

While i’m on the topic of good music, all of you should head over to www.noisetrade.com and check it out. It’s an amazing concept started in part by Derek Webb and some friends. Basically, over 60 artists (and the list grows every day) have put music online (many entire records) that you can download by one of two options: 1.) you can give three email addresses of friends that you think might like the songs, or 2.) you can pay whatever price you like. It’s the future of music in my opinion–and that’s a good thing!

So head over there. Several artists you should look for (and remember, you can get the albums for FREE!) are Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken, Jill Phillips, and Andy Gullahorn (who’s (free) album ‘reinventing the wheel’ is probably is on my top 5, and who was one of the producers of Andrew Peterson’s new album).

Don’t pass it up, and check back often. New albums are added all the time!

Let There Be Music!

September 8th, 2008 by Rob Osborn

Just a quick note to anyone still checking out the old blog. After the heart-wrenching loss of all the material i was recording for my ‘Exit 227′ project, i’ve decided to release the demos of some of my songs for public consumption. I don’t know if i’ll ever get an album finished or not, but i can’t keep these songs hidden forever. I hope you enjoy! To listen, click here, or on the ‘music’ tab at the top of this page. If you can’t get the flash player to work, email or comment here and let me know. Thanks!
