TheSirDuke – Salute Artist Spotlight Vol. 33 #IndieArtist #Musicismylife

Why did you make this song?

This song was made to commemorate the efforts of truly support women and all that they do. Many times the efforts of the people closest to you can go undervalued. Similar to how America salutes the fallen soldiers who have given their lives; this was a chance to acknowledge great women who have sacrificed everything while they are here in the present.

What do you want to achieve in your music career?

What I’d really like to achieve with my music career is a shared experience. Everyone has a story to share and my music is no different. Ideally, it will open people’s eyes to what it takes to go through the trials of life and still stand firm. Whether the message reaches one or one million; it’s an opportunity for shared stories that will outlive me and facilitate a community of storytellers.

When did you start loving music and what are you creating next?

The moment in which I started loving music was a time when I felt I made a connection with it. My great grandfather owned a record store and that influenced my hearing of it. After I’d heard Common’s ~ I Used to Love Her, was the moment a connection to the feeling was made. I’d played instruments as a youth but hadn’t made an attempt to write or craft stories until later in life. Some of the projects that are next on my radar are all based on visuals and film. Crafting better stories with video and making the connections to the film are high on my efforts list.
