Musicians, It is that time again to plan this year's Banding Together Spondylitis Compilation.
Since 2006 BlowUpRadio.com has been doing this annual benefit to raise money for the Spondylitis Association Of America. As most of you know this cause is very personal to me as my wife suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis.
Like previous years, the compilation has become a key way to raise money for the SAA, as well as distribute a lot of amazing music to people.
In order to make the compilation more sought after, I am looking for previously unreleased songs, or new live versions of songs (or exclusive remixes, etc.), that would be exclusive to the compilation until January 2018 (the compilation will be coming out on Sept. 30th).
Contact me if you would like to be on the compilation.

Someone recently asked me what type of music I liked.
To me that's a trick question.
Because there are a many titles and subgenres that people like to label music, but when it comes right down to it, on a personal level, there are only two type of music...
the music like (good music)
the music you don't like (bad music)
...and obviously both types are subjective to each individual.
If someone says a song is good, you might check it out. If the same person said it's a good country song, you might avoid it if you have a negative association with country music. But country music can mean Willie Nelson and (for some inexplicable reason) Taylor Swift, though neither sound like they belong in the same sentence, let alone music category (which is not to say someone couldn't be a fan of both).
My point (yes, I think I have one), is that when we over classify music we may inadvertently turn people off what we think is a good song before the person has even heard it.
