#Hollywood by Dae Bogan
Everyone out here is trying to be somebody,
Trying to accomplish something,
Trying to make it.
We accept hardship as part of the journey.
We reason with set backs.
We swallow failure.
The goal, the hope is that we will progress.
Against the odds, we will break through.
We hope to succeed beyond our wildest imaginations,
But we are prepared to settle for just enough to keep us solid.
We have doubt.
We have fear.
We have denial.
And then…and then we have moments of enlightenment.
We are surrounded by failures and success stories.
We are constantly battling our own growth trajectory.
Our own insecurities and our own limitations are shackles to our efforts.
We know life would be easier if we retreated back to our hometowns,
But we have too much pride,
We have too much ambition,
We have too much perseverance to do that.
Besides, we just aren’t cut out for that life.
We are entertainers.
We are creatives.
We are agents of fantasy.
All we want is for people to like us for who we are,
Like us for what we do,
Like us for what we represent.
And all we want is to entertain You.
I will be teaching a “Music Copyrights & Publishing” workshop at the Independent Music Conference. This workshop will cover music copyrights and publishing basics. Topics will include rights granted to music copyright owners, protection and enforcement, public domain vs. creative commons, public performance vs. digital performance, and much more.
The Independent Music Conference (IMC)® is a Federally Registered Trademark. It is the only national music conference designed specifically for the rapidly growing independent music market. Founded in 2002, the IMC has been presented thirteen times in cities all over the U.S. including Philadelphia, Dallas, Charleston, Northampton and Los Angeles.
