We Know Your Name – Howard Anderson

 

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

I have been writing poems for years and one day I decided to try converting them to songs but I discovered you will write better songs if you just write about events and feelings that everyone can relate to. Let poems be poems. Everyone has a story or message or an imagination. I choose to write songs because they can move you one way or another – make you laugh – cry – feel love – heal. There is a song for every emotion – We can all write songs.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

First I go with the flow and just start writing and at any point I stop and read the lyrics again and see if the story is confusing or misleading, going back and forth, missing details that might be needed so the listener doesn’t walk away with a bunch of unanswered questions. When I am done I send the song to very smart people in the industry like Jason Blume, Rick Chudacoff and others to have them critique my song.

Discuss your life outside the music world.

I am just an average person. I have worked in warehouses, factories, sewing machine mechanic, and auto mechanic. I enjoy designing and working with inventions.

Discuss your music career.

I really enjoy song writing and I hope I get the opportunity to show more of my songs I have written.

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

Michael Jackson – Thriller – The amount of creativity in the video was so great, the song was so catchy, made 1983 a memorable year. The kind of song we wish we all wrote.

 

 

Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry – This is an amazing video with a lot of creativity and how wonderful is her voice. It does not hurt to have a friend like Max Martin involved.

 

 

 

Katy Perry – Roar – I like this video because it is so colorful with all the jungle look. Very creative as it draws you in with excitement with the perfect song choice. Beautiful voice.

 

 

Ariana Grande God Is A Woman – This video has so many graphic pictures all through it. Constantly giving you new images to view. It looks so expensive to make. It all comes together when you hear her voice all throughout the video.

 

 

 

Carrie Underwood – Cry Pretty – Wow, this video not only shows what a talented singer she is but how she can put her emotions into the song with sad facial expressions and tears coming down. It makes you want to run up to her and give comfort by putting your arms around her and telling her it will be alright. She has the skills to draw you into the scene.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

My inspiration comes from life experiences about myself and others. My inspiration can also come from my imagination on what it would be like if I was put into a situation. My inspiration could come from a thought of how can I make you laugh, jump up and dance. Inspiration and imagination is everywhere.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

This is the most exciting part when I hire an artist to sing my song. This is the time I will know how it will actually sound and do I need to modify. May have to record it a few times to get it right. Then I can put music to it and it will sound great.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your future projects.

I am working on four songs, two are done. Two will be soon. I have a killer Christmas song that is amazing. My music producer right now is working on the background music.

.

.

.

 

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

Of course my family, also my music producer and the talented artists that sing my songs give me their opinions when they think it is necessary. I get help, advice, and support from the professionals that critique my songs.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release of songs.

Yes we want quantity, the more sales the better. But- if we don’t have quality then we won’t have quantity.  Quality should not be over looked. There is no reason why we can’t have both.

.

.

 

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

A music career can be the most fun and rewarding career as long as you love it more than anything else.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

There are 1,264 micro-genres that have been identified.  41 categories and 337 subsets of musical genres. I think it should be easier for the public to find an artist. I think we should find a way to reduce the system as the numbers are too large and confusing.

.

.

.

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

First I want to say I like mainstream (Popular) music on the Billboard charts. There are so many genres of songs out there I will never hear in my lifetime, many I am sure I would despise because it goes against what my ear has been trained to like.

List your favourite movies with reasons.

Shutter Island – This movie had so many twists and turns. Filled with excitement and entertainment.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

Title: We Know Your Name…Name is Cancer. This song was written on behalf of my mother who died of Breast Cancer. This song is for everyone who lost a loved one to this disease. Someday It will be our time for cheers and we will wipe away all the tears.
