When I first heard the phrase “creative class” I instantly got excited. Much like the phrase “group think” or “food coma”, a name had finally been created for something that’s been around for hundreds of years without a proper label.

I thought, finally there’s some acknowledgement of people from whom original thought constantly emanates, an umbrella for people with whom music/film/books resonate so deeply they miss meals and show up late for everything.

In this blog series we’ll explore the idea of a creative class and understand where global citizens who possess these traits have been – as a stratum of society- and where they may be headed.

Online research quickly taught me that the creative class has already lived through a dot.com bubble of sorts, thanks to the hopeful and entrepreneurial vision of Richard Florida, an economist at the Martin Prosperity Institute in Toronto.

In 2002, Florida published a book called the “The Rise of the Creative Class” which espoused the idea that whenever leaders of a floundering metropolitan city wish to revive their economy, they should simply create conditions that attract artistic folks. This makes sense to me. I don’t need charts and graphs to understand how magical the streets of Paris must have felt in the early 20th century. And I recently watched a roomful of auto industry titans agree with instant consensus that Austin, TX would be ideal for their next gathering.

But Florida’s template for success didn’t meet the expectations held by everyone who paid his high consulting fees. While the re-building efforts legitimately could be credited for boosting real estate values in Portland’s Pearl District and Chicago’s Wicker Park, the gestalt of these civic efforts in many cases often “ended up looking something like the metropolitan equivalent to a midlife crisis.”

The economic gains from planting cafes, street musicians and home brewing shops in the middle of cities like Cleveland and Memphis in order to attract “young, largely single, childless and sometimes gay people into urban neighborhoods” paled in the comparison to cities like Pittsburgh and Houston who enjoyed a resurgence due to the natural gas boom.

There are more people who need to pump gas than hear a poetry-reading. I get it. But the world didn’t stop needing web programmers just because Pets.com tanked in 2000.  And the internet has continued to advance very nicely long after Wall Street shifted its investment money over to condominiums in Miami.

So in these blogs I’ll explore other prisms through which this “creative class” people – my group of people – have been (and could be) viewed, exploited, utilized and enriched. Stay tuned.

–Background

Jason Garner of run.fire.stop offers some great music that can be described using terms like modern, techno, electronica, pop, fun, energetic, moving and inspiring.

–High profile projects or clients you have worked for?

I’ve done a lot of different things in the business, from assisting on a Wynonna Judd record, to playing keyboards on the road with Steve Holy and Blaine Larsen.  I’ve also done drum and keyboard programming work on the Grammy Award Winning children’s record “Songs from the Neighborhood:  The Music of Mister Rogers”.  It was a song that featured the late Donna Summer on vocals.  That was pretty cool.

–Primary instrument? Favorite music-making piece of gear or software you currently use?

I’m mainly a keyboard player, using tons of plugs.  I love Omnisphere as well as Kontakt’s “Giant” piano, as well as the LASS strings.  I’ve picked up playing bass over the past couple of years, and play about the heaviest jazz bass I’ve ever known (loaned to me by a friend).

–Piece of gear or software you wish you owned?

ELAM 251.  And someday, I’ll get a P-bass.

--Film score or song you admire? Why?

There’s a song demo I heard a few years back (passed onto me by a great session vocalist) by a well-known songwriter by the name of Hugh Prestwood.  Never made it onto an album, but every now and then I listen to it and think “that’s from a different planet”!  It’s called “Agave Blue”. Groove, lyric, melody. Everything is just seamless.

–Music education background?

I got a music engineering degree (bachelors in music, minor in electrical engineering) from the University of Miami in Florida.

–Memorable “Aha!” moment during your musical education?

I had an electronic music class where we had to orchestrate a classical work using some obsolete programming software, and I stayed up all through the night perfecting it; I completely lost track of time, and had a blast doing it!

–Most embarrassing music-related moment?

Too many to count.  Playing live still causes me stress, and just about always leads to an embarrassing moment.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

I’m still hopeful.

–Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

Learn the computer side of things and embrace it.  Just like being able to engineer on any console (Neve, SSL, Trident, etc.) was critical to get work a few years ago, you’ve got to be able to handle the computer and engineering side of things if you want to have enough ways to generate revenue.  And if there’s ANYTHING ELSE you can imagine doing for work that you like more, DO THAT!

–Five songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

I know I’d need at least one Oscar Peterson record.  Beyond that, would be too hard to pick!

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?

Guitar

–Any studio collaboration you experienced that stands out in your mind?

I actually got to write a song with Gloria Gaynor a few years ago.  It never went anywhere, but the whole time I was writing with her I was thinking “I Will Survive” over and over again in my head!  And the funniest thing was, she didn’t want to sing the demo!  I ended up hiring a male vocalist to sing.

–Some of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.

This is tricky, I’ve got songs I like but I will also share some tracks of mine that are popular with customers. Here you go–

“Retro Organ Groove” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=59530 –just as a fun song

“Maximum Progress” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=58939

“Inspiring Orchestral Pop Anthem” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=48970

“Fun Whistling Ukulele” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=59533

“Time to Reflect” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=45480

“Take This” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=45806

“Tender Sweet Piano String Song” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=48968

“Reach the Top” http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=45378

Tracks in portfolio on MusicRevolution.com: 57 (click here to hear all tracks) http://www.musicrevolution.com/search?artist=301

–Background

Larry Warren describes himself as more of a songwriter/musician, rather than an artist/performer. Most of Larry’s tunes are contemporary country and contemporary adult pop, with as few of his tracks in the blues and reggae genres.

–Primary instrument?

Acoustic guitar

–Music education background?

I don’t really consider myself an ‘artist/performer’ but more a musician/songwriter. My music education is self-taught.

–If you had a time machine and could record or perform once with any artist, who would it be?

I don’t know about performing, but I wish I was on the roof top when The Beatles performed for the last time.

–Moment you first knew you would be a musician?

Again, I was influenced by The Beatles, and like 1000′s of others, I thought having and playing a guitar would be very cool.

–Advice you would give to a younger family member interested in a music career?

If you have the passion, the deep interest, the persistence, and the devotion– go for it/do it. Because once you ‘get it’, and learning a musical instrument is not easy, it will be there for the rest of your life, unlike other things like sports.

–Songs or albums you’d take with you to a desert island?

Abbey Road by The Beatles

White Album by The Beatles

Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits

Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits

The song ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’

–If you could master another instrument, what would it be?

Piano

–A few of your favorite tracks that you would want us to feature in the blog.

If I have to pick a few of my tunes I guess—

‘We’re Getting Married Mix 1′ http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=24637 –that’s my Beatles wanna be song.

‘Me and My Ukulele’ http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=21440 –that’s my nod to George Harrison. He was a huge ukulele fan/player and it was a finalist in a national songwriting contest.

‘I Wanna Be You’ http://www.musicrevolution.com/search/?trackid=52574 –just an upbeat positive tune.

 

We thank Larry Warren for sharing some musical background with us and for contributing tracks to MusicRevolution.com, the Royalty-Free Music Marketplace. If you need contemporary country and contemporary adult pop, check out Larry Warren’s music on MusicRevolution.com.

King Solomon, who owned massive piles of gold, famously wrote, “There is nothing new under the sun”. Professional songwriters like me have long had a quiet conspiracy around that idea. And now that one of our own - Tom Petty – has blown the whistle we can enjoy even more ways to lose money as a musician. Awesome.

Late last year Petty’s publishing company reached out to singer Sam Smith and alleged that Smith’s monster 2014 breakout hit:

…was surely a rip-off of Tom’s 1989 hit “Won’t Back Down”:

Sam’s people quickly acquiesced. And now Petty, with his 15 Top 40 hits (the last of which was over 20 years ago), is listed as a co-writer on Sam’s debut hit “Stay With Me”.

The gut reaction I immediately felt and heard from friends both in and out of the music industry was, “Wow. Really?”. It felt like a David/Goliath thing that violated what every musician knows – that everything generated is derivative of something else. Pablo Picasso even once said,
“Good artists borrow, great artists steal”.

This “Petty act” has now moved the threshold, for all songwriters, between what is a commonly used vocabulary of elements (mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, yellow mustard) and what is a signature, copyright-able work (Big Mac special sauce) to a scary place. Musicians who are fortunate enough to strike gold can now look forward to entirely new level of scrutiny in the courtroom with questions like: “Have you ever heard the song you’re being accused of stealing?” (Um…music plays everywhere so probably), “In your academic opinion, (insert name of out-of-touch musicologist), are these songs structurally similar?” (Well, yeah. Every pop song uses the same four chords) and “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, what verdict do you think will most likely get you an autograph from that iconic celebrity sitting right over there?

Based on this video, I guess Tom Petty has a lot of court dates coming up:

I’ll also guess that when Mr. Petty released his 1976 hit “Breakdown”, some part of him – deep down inside – knew these verses…

….used the exact same melody and chord structure as the verses in this single released by the Animals ten years earlier:

But those are just the musical building blocks we all openly share right, Tom? I guess to you that’s flattery – not imitation.  Whereas Sam Smith and his co-writers, on the other hand, petted their white cats and laughed maniacally as they imported your three-chord progression into Pro Tools, saved themselves a whole lot of time and energy and went down to the pub and enjoyed a drink on your dime right?

Good bust, officer. Good on you.
