This is the story of the evolving journey of Vene Thomas Yates (AKA Vene Thomas Music) and my development of knowledge in the Music Business, friendships and the in the moment experiences while growing a place in the world wide community of musicians.
The mission of this site is to serve as a portal for sharing my musical experiences while also introducing you to others who are on the same journey. You will find links to other's sites, as well as pictures and videos capturing creative encounters. Many are in-the-moment, unrehearsed, unpolished, and maybe even a bit “pitchy” with a few bad notes. But that is the nature of real musical inventiveness when recorded live. Hopefully this site will inspire you to join us in our travels to motivate and encourage others to continue to contribute to our musical legacy.
- Music provides an opportunity to tell a story (real or imagined) as we wish it could of been or feel it should have been or how it actually was.
- Music is a means of expressing emotion or to invoke a feeling which can aid in relief and recovery.
- Music inspires imagination and an invitation to reflect on life's meaning.
- The Business Side of music is a never ending but necessary task we must pursue to keep on making music.
- What would we do without music? What we do without our tunes?
