Negative Minded People Need Not Apply
Have you ever wondered why some people often say the glass is half-empty, when you always see it half-full? Music is a powerful method of delivering a positive message and now a New Zealand artist has added his songs to the mix.
MySpace has registered over 20,000 individual plays and No8Whyre regularly appears in the Top 10 music spots for New Zealand artists, featuring alongside Dave Dobbyn & Th’ Dudes, Steve McDonald and Parachute Band.
The music CD is aptly sub-titled, ‘Music for Lovers of Music’ with Keith Lightfoot and Andrea Mills providing strong vocal harmonies, and New Zealand legend Gray Bartlett making a special guest appearance in “Arise My Soul” with some beautiful lead guitar work. Mike McCarthy, Manuka Studios connects all the dots with his professional experience and provides string and percussion support.
“Being accepted as a Member of the Positive Music Association is a huge step for our music” says Lightfoot. “Not only does it provide an effective vehicle to reach out to the world, but is also connects us with like minded people”.
The Positive Music Association provides the largest collection of Positive artists and music in the world, and provides resources and networking opportunities for members to grow and market their music.
Scott Johnson is the co-founder and executive director of the Positive Music Association which sees music not only as entertainment, but as a way to create positive change in the world. His own eclectic mix of pop/rock, adult contemporary music aims to entertain as well as inspire and enlighten.
“One of the best pieces of original music I have heard. I really like these two songs! "Light My Fire" has deep meaning and "Arise My Soul" has real rhythm.”
Ross McRobie: General Manager (1996-2008): The Radio Network Limited, Christchurch, NZ.
