The Golden Seals (Dave Merritt)

Email from my a buddy of mine from law school (Dave Merritt) about how to get published:

"Getting "published" is well-nigh impossible--most labels or publishing houses have in-house writers that do all of their songwriting for the borderline-talentless clowns who don't write their own stuff. They don't solicit songs, so getting your song covered/published/recorded by someone else is almost impossible. Having said that, you could register to become a member of SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers), who will register your works and distribute performance royalties. BUT, it's a double bind, as in order to become a member, your works need to be performed either in public or on the radio, or appear on a recording. So...screw all that. The important thing is that you love doing it, and that you keep writing and singing. It's a blast. You could finish a full length, get 100 cds done, and get a website or a myspace site, and then likely get into SOCAN that way."

Dave's a great singer/songwriter/musician in the Ottawa area. You can catch his band, The Golden Seals, on the web here and buy his songs at Zunior.

This is going to be a long road...

Here's looking at you...

Forza Italia

That's my Sofia cheering for her favourite World Cup team (FORZA ITALIA!!). Sofia wore my "Azzuri" home jersey and, with flag in hand, helped cheer Italia to its 4th World Cup title. Not to be undiplomatic, up until its loss to France in the semi-final, Sofia was also cheering on her mother's beloved Portugal (FORCA PORTUGAL!), but she wore the right jersey in the end...

My Soundclick Page

Lorenzo Policelli - Band page with free MP3 music downloads on SoundClick
This is my Soundclick site with a few of my songs up there... if you stumble on this site and hear this music, let me know what you think (go ahead and comment).

Speaks for itself...

I'm not even going to mention anything here...
