Who Am I ?

That's a good question! Who am I? 

Well, I'm a young guy, passionate about music. I was offered my first disc (OMG I feel so old) when I was 4 years old. I was rocked by Pink Floyd and Mike Oldfield and very quickly introduced to real music. At 7, I started creating radio shows with a small tape station, I interviewed my friends for fun... And then ?

2001 > I entered a real radio station as I was 14 and I was given my first show. But for real, this time. Its goal ? To propose only new tracks, discoveries, and new talents. Since then, nothing has really changed. I'm still giving some free times to an FM radio station, to make people discover different things.

2005 > I've founded "Pop'N'rocK Radio" which was made to promote indie music. It lasted for 12 years, which is huge for a Web Radio Station! It brought me thousands of contacts from Artists, Bands, Labels, Blogs, and it was a fantastic adventure.

2017 > Webradios are kinda dead, and this concept is not as powerful as it has been in the past. So I gave it up and started a blog, called "Music For Your Heart". With this blog, I tried to select, in all the genres, for you, the best songs that you won't forget within 10 minutes. My point of view is simple : a song is not made to make people getting on their nerves if they listen to it every 2 hours. Far from the high rotations of FM radios that pollute all the countries, and that kills the creativity of artists, I wanted to show that the world of music is now very big (thanks to the Internet, that's true), and that in reality, the medias confine us to less than 1% of what exists. And what exists elsewhere is much better than what we are flabbergasted every 2 hours on the radio waves. I try to accompany each review by a small analysis, often personal, and sometimes funny. Well. Yeah. Why should we take ourselves seriously, in this world where everything is properly sorted in boxes? This blog brought me even more contact in the show-business world especially with famous Record Labels.

2019 > After 2 years of blogging, I made simple observations :

1/ It's really hard for indie music fans to find indie music easily. There are too much places, everywhere, and they all feature so much different things (Youtube Channels, Spotify Playlists, Webradios, Blogs). Where to start ? They need help on that point.

2/It's really hard for Artists/Bands to know where to submit their music, and how... Most of them don't even have a Facebook Page. They need help on that point.

3/It's really hard for Record Labels to live in 2019. They are sometimes directed by people who are still in 1998 and don't even know the power of socials, and of Internet, more generally. They need help on that point.

4/It's really hard for Bloggers to find good content and most of them give up, just because they're wasting time and money. They need help on that point.

5/It's really hard for Radio Stations to schedule the perfect program. Yeah, music programming on the radio is a science. So they need help on that point.

Then I told myself : "What! So much people to help ? Why don't we have all the tools to help all those people at the same place?"

So I decided that my blog would become more like a "portal" for indie music, to help... Everyone! Soon, you'll be able to find "Tools" on the Indie Music Center. There will be tools for Music Lovers, or tools for Artists/Bands, for Youtube Channels, for Spotify playlisters, for bloggers, or for Radio Stations. I've been working in the music industry for almost 20 years now, and I really would like to help other people to take benefit of what the Internet brought directly in our hands. Everyone can have gold in his hands. But people just need to know how to find it. Internet is going fast. I'm older than 30 now, and I realize that people that are only 20 can manage all those things so much easier than me... So what about musicians aged 40 who don't even have a Facebook page ? We'll solve this together!
