New Jersey Musicians Networking For A Change

Our Objective is to foster and encourage creative partnerships
between business and the arts. -
USA Musicians Forum - Powered by GrassRoots Networking

When it comes right down to it, we all want the same thing, right? To be given a chance, to be heard, to be loved. To connect with other humanoids on some level, however small, and find reason to believe that we're not as alone as we sometimes feel. To take our muse from the safety of the living room to stages far from home, to find our voice and sing our song . . .

OK, thus go the mental ramblings of an artist. Thanks to Mark Barreres and Grassroots Networking for turning dreams and ramblings into real results and even - dare we say it -  money. Yes, the "M" word. We in Wild Blue Yonder are not afraid to say that we appreciate being paid for our art, and Mark's "connect the dots" system is already making that happen for us. We haven't been affiliated very long, but already hits on our website are up and new connections are being made daily.

Thanks so much, Grassroots Networking, for linking us up in so many ways and so many places! We can't wait to see what the future holds, to grow our relationships and to tell more music biz people what great things you are doing. -

Scott Christopher Murray

Scott moved to Nashville in the early 1990's. While there, he opened for Emmylou Harris, Bruan Bowers, Goose Creek Symphony and Suzy Bogguss. He also shared the state with Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and Henry Gross. Scott was named Grand Prize winner at the Gumtree Folk Festival, and was a regular performer at Townes Van Zandt's bar in Nashville.

Before leaving Nashville and returning home to Virginia, Scott wrote and produced the songs on his second album, "Short Stories." Two of these songs were selected by Virginia-based DCD Records in 1998 to appear on a compilation of Shenandoah artists. Shortly after the release of this compilation, "In the Shadow of the Blue Ridge," the Canadian Games Commission and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation accepted one song for consideration for the 1999 Pan American Games. The song, "Manitoba, " was written by Canadian Dean Sayln and sung by Scott Christopher Murray.

We are looking for musicians that want to share and start a "USA Musician House Concert Series". We get calls all the time from musicans saying hey man we are passing though your area and are looking to play a house concert and make some money. At that point I ask them are you willing get a house concert series going in your home town? That question either ends the call up or they keep on talking about how great they are and how it's all about them... The question is how many musicians and business people see outside the box?

Ever been in an unfamiliar city, dying for a place to play tonight?
Or at home, new song needing a tryout? Me too. Might be nice to have one
comprehensive place to look... so let's all help build it. -
