Think globally - but not globalization. We already have a McDonald's, Target, Home Depot, etc. On every corner in America. Do we really want them on every street corner in EVERY City in the world? Is our version of democracy and capitalism the only way to go? I hope not. The world is getting to be a pretty dull place because everything looks the same everywhere. Think independently - not be dependent on someone else to think for you. Just because some commercial tells you to buy something YOU don't really have to too. Make your decision on what is good and bad. Take a chance, go out a limb and try something different. If you do you'll actually be supporting someone who does think independently. What I've been thinking about are reflected on my CD a deeper groove. All of the music is in the pocket groove based. The lyrics however and hard hitting social commentary on the general state of things in the United States and the world in general. Relative to my background I am based in Chicago, IL with a varied musical background across a number genre including rock, jazz and R&B. My primary instrument is the bass however I play all instruments and perform all vocals on this disc.
