Nashville Songwriter Cautions Music Industry To Be Aware Of Who Is Hearing Their Music
Award winning songwriter Milliea McKinney speaks out on the importance of those artist in the music industry to be cautious of who is listening to their music. Saying that today's youth are highly influenced by their lyrical artistry.
Those whose profession is to express or, entertain through the use of lyrics need to understand their role in role modeling for society, and especially our youth.
The biggest buyer in music today is our teens therefore, we as artist need to understand how our words impact our youth. We as professionals need to own up to the responsibility as a mentor that will impact, and influence our listeners. Keeping in mind the innocence of our youth and protecting their childhood is among that responsibility.
Our society has gone through many changes music being one of the resources that depicts the times we are living says, McKinney.
I wanted to bring this knowledge to society to take on the concept of change through lyrics in music for our youth says, McKinney. I wanted to impact the world with the resource that could make a difference. That is why Conscious Music Entertainment was born.
McKinney says, that she has always wanted to make a difference because, she saw our world going in this direction but, did not truly understand how or, where to start. At least until she met Grammy artist Skyler Jett, who inspired her that she could be that leader, and mentor that could make the difference.
In doing so Skyler, gave her the business name of Conscious Music Entertainment, and from that point on she knew her company would have to set root in order to grow, and filter in the many communities, and society to gain the support she would need to make this a possibility.
Since, then as a mentor to teens she has opened a door to the seeds of change, and though she will admit she has along way to go she also, embraces that she is not at the starting gate either.
Conscious Music Entertainment, is a talent agency that promotes positive lyrics, and artistry that reminds artist, leaders, and adults that our role, and responsibility is to ensure our teens get to live out their childhood so we can better prepare them for those situations that occur at the adult level.
As a award winning songwriter, she says she understands the role lyrics has to the human emotion.
She also, says,she sees more artist coming forward to make their role more noticeable such as with the rock group Nickelback, and Coldplay some of the songs they are now filtering has positive messages demonstrating entertainment can be both positive, and entertaining.
