You’ve been bearded!

As many things do, it all started with a silly joke! 

I was urged to show my face by some people on the internet (yes, you, you will recognize yourself!) but as I’ve said many times, I don’t have a public face, I’m invisible and intend to stay so, as I believe my music is there to speak for me and all the rest is unimportant and uninteresting… 

But the pressure was such that I took the image of a fellow artist, and Photoshop-ed a beard on him… That pic is now infamous and I deeply apologize Codie Prevost! I hope you have a sense of humour, it wasn’t meant to be a joke on you in any case, and I do love your music! Let’s just say you were the first but you will certainly not be the last!

Because this made me think, and I was also prompted by my good friend Walter Hargrave from Indie Music Bus, that I should use that as a recognition award.

I really mean a recognition award, not a Top 10 or “best artist”, or anything like that, but as a token of my appreciation for the good music and the artist/band, or even for some great indie supporters, radios, blog, anyone active in the indie scene that deserve thanks for all they do for the love of music.

So from now on, I decided that I will give that award from time to time, here and there, (and I’m afraid there will probably be an accompanying pic, yes!) to shout out to great people, so that anyone who follows me will also know that I’m thankful to these people and that they deserve a following, a listen and some love back…

So, watch out because anyone worthy might get bearded!
And you might well be next!

    Ah! NOW I get a minute to read it I see why you're all talking about beards! Well, you've excelled yourself Patrick! I thought my ideas were daft ....... Just a bit disappointed because when I first saw it I thought it was solid gold and as I am DEFINITELY deserving of an award please bear this in mind! I do NOT want anyone covering my handsome face with a beard! Solid gold award for me or nothing! Get the message??

    It's been an absolute honour to wear the artist of the week beard! You promised good things would follow and they surely have! Can't wait to see who we'll hand the fuzzy baton to next? ?

    The good things of course have nothing to do with the beard but with your awesome music Lee! I only hope that the fuzzy baton next recipients will always be as amazing! ;)
