AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

JESSE CAMPBELL

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Recently I celebrated three years of being the Number One blues artist for New Zealand on Reverbnation -
three whole years since I put out my first release on there and went to number one and stayed and stayed
and stayed..........http://www.reverbnation.com/tommiesingah


The track I released - against a huge amount of advice that it was 'too long' a track - was
'Can't Leave You Alone' and that song is the first on my self produced album In The Making
which I finally got on to CD Baby a couple of months ago and has been featured there.

This album took me to Number Four in the USA RootsMusicReport Blues chart amongst some of
the great names of blues and so far as I am aware, as the only non-American in there at the time.
I stayed there for some weeks and then disappeared, but last week returned and the album is
back in there at Number 8.

Coincidentally, the song 'Can't Leave You Alone' is the one chosen on the USA site Song Vault
to be in their blues finals charts and I'm proud to say that it is now in its 5th week at Number One
thanks to people who have voted it there.

And today I discovered that I am now Number One blues vocalist on the Australian site
MP3.au.com - which for a New Zealander I can assure you is quite an achievement.  I see
that I am also rated at Number 11 on that same site for the general blues category.

All of this comes about through great support from those who find my music connects with them
in some way and that means everything to me.  So many difficulties, huge mountains to climb
and creating, performing and producing my music in my own way all on my own to find that
it is received so so so well, definitely puts a big smile on my face.

I just Google my name and got 22,000,000, mentions - although that actually is nowhere



as large as my interview show Tommie Talks Music - but that's another story!

Thank you to all my friends, fellow musicians and all of you who purchased my music or
are playing it on radio.  And now - the next album is waiting for me...............
