Welcome to the NEW FryinginVein.com!

It has been a long time coming, but it is finally a reality – FryinginVein.com is now in business as Frying in Vein (FiV) Music Business Services – a SorSaw Enterprises, LLC company. Please excuse the dust. There will be active changes being made in the coming weeks as we get comfortable with the new setup.

Major thanks goes to Chris Genetti aka @draconum for the theme re-design. He is not just great with web design; he is also pretty handy with producing electronic music. Ask him about it.

If you enjoy the lovely background image, then you will be interested to know that it was designed by Andrea Williams of &rea Designs.

There is a lot more to come, so take a look around and make sure you stay tuned in however you like!

Artist to Watch: Hesta Prynn – A True Hustler

It has been a while since I did a serious artist feature. The main reason for that is I am really picky about which artists I choose to discuss, because I do not consider myself as just a music blogger. I do not want my reading audience to be confused with the content as I know we naturally want to categorize things in definite spaces.

No big deal, right? Of course not, I am just talking with my friend about music and the business of it. When out of the Twitter blue comes this:

@reply from WesFif from HubertGAM

Now you may look at this and say, “So?” My response to you would be, similar to what my Mother’s Mother would say in such an instance, “Child, bless your heart,” for you know not of a ground-breaking moment this is. If you remember me bitching about rappers, then you know I think they are the greatest spammers on the planet.

One of the biggest problems with spammers is that they don’t LISTEN. If you read this blog, then you know it’s a secret to success. That is why when an artist, who I do not have a personal relationship, actually responds to something I say in reference to them, a feeling of deep appreciation befalls me.
