Welcome to the Music Emerging launch...This is a project I have been wanting to start for a long time. I really enjoy music and learning about the people who create it, and their unique journey. I also enjoy all aspects of art-and wanted to create a magazine with a more predominant emphasis on visual art, photography and poetry. In each issue, I interview a musician who also produces a type of art, and I was excited to discover the first issue's artist: Sarah Red Shoes and her stunning drawings which she produces into all kinds of useable merchandise.
As a novice photographer, I really enjoy composing pictures, especially of musicians, and in future issues I plan on having more photographs by guest photographers. Each issue features musicians from around the L.A. area, but this issue also includes pics from trips to Joshua Tree, Ca.
I have always focused musically on lyrics, and am a big fan of Bob Dylan and other artists whose lyrics read like poems. I was lucky to come across a tune that I played over and over again by Tom Kell and Emiko Woods. The lyrics also flowed visually into a beautiful poem that I enjoyed reading called "The Fool." I look forward to posting another lyrical poem in the next issue.
This first issue is a starting point-I hope it will grow in volume, and will also interest others in contributing to the project.
Music Emerging has a large and growing social network. There will be links throughout the issue that connects you to live music videos via the youtube channel, soundbites via soundcloud, and lots of pics and info through instagram, facebook and twitter.
