“Home-made Music is the online meeting place for the global creative community” Home-Made Youtube Channel Home-Made Official Facebook page Home-Made(@HomeMadeMusic78) – Twitter It’s been over-cooked and half-baked for so long that some good old new fashioned home-made music- make, bake and shake that Home-made Music- might be the recipe many have been waiting for. Share [...]

Someone new to Hong Kong was asking if there were any local artists like Sia, Pink, Janelle Monae, or Jhene Aiko- pop artists but with that creative quirkiness that gives them an edge. We were having dinner, the video for “Pressure” was being shown on one of the music channels, and she wanted to go [...]

It’s the start of the Year of the Ram, which some call the Sheep and others, the Goat, and despite the usual celebrations and floats and messages of health and wealth and all that other good stuff, it is a very quiet Hong Kong. No, not a “chilled” Hong Kong, but a worried and kinda [...]

As John Lennon proved with “In My Life”, and, of course, “Imagine”, music is a great leveler and one of the greatest healers we have.

So, there we were thinking which female singer in Hong Kong we could use for a new song- and went through the list of usual suspects until wondering if we- and they- REALLY knew their “real” voices. The problem in Hong Kong is that unlike the UK, Oz, the US, Canada and Scandinavia, there is [...]

Monkey-see, monkey-do. It’s what most of Hong Kong is afflicted with and if, somehow, someone, somewhere, either in Hong Kong or The Pied Piper of Hamlyn doesn’t find a way to shower this place with inspiration that will make originality live again, this city will be known as The City Of Lemmings. Forget the buffet [...]

Some of us might not have known it at the time, but, damn, Hong Kong had some very good ad people and real characters who created a thriving industry- the late Mike Chu, Richard Lam, James Wong and Stoney Mudd, Tony Morias, Mark Hilltout, Clarke Mallory. Stasch Radwanski, Mike Fromowitz, Peter Thompson, Charles Wang, Louis [...]

(Source: Ning) We all need inspiration or else to be around people who can inspire and move away from those who stare at a half-filled glass or engage in that boring dance of he-said-u-said which leads to brain freeze.
