What do you think is the biggest obstacle for musicians today? The biggest obstacle for artists today is getting radio airplay - not just here in Hawaii, but across the nation. It really takes signing onto a major label/distributor to get songs played on the radio. Don’t get me wrong - if a radio station gets thousands of calls and requests for a song, they will play it. But there are advantages today that artists didn’t have before, and that’s the Internet and myspace. I believe it was a TRX interview with Chuck D, and he said, “The best thing an artist can do today is have a website.” The Internet has made the world smaller, and now anyone can enjoy music from around the world.

Upcoming projects: I’m planning to hold an event at a venue (to be determined) once a month where artists can perform original songs, TRX will tape the performance and showcase it on TRX on OC-16 and TRX Oceanic Digital Channel 584.
