Hello musicians and listeners! Welcome to the inaugural blog post for Relaxing Music World! The title for our very first post is 'The State of Our Union", because in a very fundamental and core manner, our company is in essence a union between like minded recording musicians. RMW is comprised of a collective family of artists who have agreed to let their individual creations become part of a larger body of combined works; our intention is to take previously recorded tracks from our participating artists and to include these songs into themed instrumental compilation albums. This is a proven strategy which has been used for decades by many highly successful companies ; so we didn't exactly re-invent the wheel, but we did put some nice new tires on it !
So, at this point, what exactly is the "State of Our Union" ?
Well , to begin with, the very fact that you are reading this post represents a particular milestone for RMW. Even though our company has been active for a couple of years, this marks the first month our website is up and running. What took us so long? Well.... we've been kinda busy. In a very good way.
With our humble beginnings as a grass roots project, pretty much all of our original group of artists were fellow musicians from the Sedona area. Patrick Ki, the founder of RMW , spent the previous thirty years as a professional musician in this region and considers many of the artist family to be among his closest friends. The main priority in our first years has been to produce compilation albums , and to generate supplemental passive income for the musician collective. With much gratitude, we have begun to see the fruits of our labor, although we still have much more we wish to accomplish!
In this age of technology, however , it is apparent that we cannot remain an island to ourselves for much longer. After much consideration, we feel it's time to work with a more diversified distribution program ( or company ), and to continue to reach out to like minded artists who may reside outside the sphere of our existing collective. We hope that our new website will help us to achieve these immediate goals, as well as other long range objectives in the future. But we hope to always remain a company run by musicians for the benefit of other musicians, no matter what changes may happen in our industry down the road.
So, if you are an Relaxing Music World fan or listener, thank you for your interest and support, and please feel free to check out our latest compilations!
And if you are a musician, we would love to hear from you if you have any interest in joining our collective!
I wish all of you the very best in your endeavours!
Sincerely, Patrick Ki
