By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk So, you’ve recorded some songs. Great. Creative outlets always lead one away from darkness and into some form of shining light. But what do you plan to do with these songs? Even with a record label behind you, what can they do for these songs? Really. And if you’ve managed to [...]

By Hans Ebert It’s reached a point where it’s not even a case of Them versus Us. It’s finally come around to how to get around legalese that were questionable from the start, but which many were too timid to question, especially at those tribal gatherings of wannabe big swinging dicks who would waltz in [...]

By Hans Ebert Often- extremely often- one wonders if artists really know what’s happening to their music, and, more often than not, why nothing is happening to their music. Forget about all those travelling First Class with their army of lawyers wearing tight legal briefs and with the firepower to give windburn to anyone in [...]

By Hans Ebert Whoever are in these offices have worked in this lazy, meandering way for decades.

What made the young singer-songwriter tackle such a mature and deep subject in such an outwardly innocent way where he played the sagely father and the [...]

Last week a group of us ended up in one of the most surreal karaoke lounges anywhere in the world where one expects to see midgets and the candy coloured clown performing as if in a scene from “Twin Peaks”, or “Blue Velvet”. It’s all very David Lynch film noire. Instead, in this pretty much [...]

I was at the Blue Bar of the Four Seasons in Hong Kong the other night. After months of having the same resident singer who had way over-stayed her welcome, someone new was, mercifully, replacing her- someone from New York, I was told as if being “from New York” is a given for amazing talent.
