By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk It always seems like a good idea: Take a total break from the monotony and autonomy and lobotomy of it all. You can already smell the sand and sea and surf, and images of still to be discovered delights ping pong around your head. But all this is like premature ejaculation. [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk As with love, when it comes to music and finding new homes and futures for it that actually pay for the upkeep, too often we keep going to the same well over and over again and wonder why we’re not an Ed Sheeran, or a Rihanna etc. Well, maybe it’s because [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk My friend Mark in Sydney is going into the studio this week to record some of his originals, not for any other reason than just the fun of it. It’s not even taking a punt, because he has no expectations and knows that the return on his investment would be minuscule. [...]

By Hans Ebert The Big Fish In The Small Pond Syndrome. It’s been the death of many musicians, and, these days, with all these social media platforms available, it’s all become one free-for-all for self promotion. And it’s not only ugly as hell, it’s funny, it’s sad and it’s pointless. Once thought to be online [...]

By Hans Ebert It’s really about seeing and finding the potential before investing the time to take things forward. It’s like any relationship. If that thunderbolt doesn’t hit you where it matters after three goes at bat, it never will. Same with any business. If it’s been struggling from day one, it’s going nowhere. The [...]

By Hans Ebert It’s definitely been because of the erratic behaviour of President Donald Trump, but these last few weeks, a keyword playing over and over again in my head is the one called Tolerance. Trump- it’s almost impossible to call him President- is intolerant and intolerable- a 70-year-old manchild, who seems to be going [...]
