Portrait of Doug Jackson 1

NOTE: I've put a few of my studio song demos here now, but I'm a bit reluctant to enter the competitions with them since OS's "archiving" policy means we permanently lose the ability to remove them from this site if wanted or needed to for licensing purposes... The way I see it, that's a serious legal issue with this site... I've removed all my original raw demo song files I had uploaded here which were never entered into any of the competitions... Fortunately, only a handful were but, those I did enter way back when are stilly here; only hidden from everyone... Sorry about that but, every artist should have the right to remove their own material they allowed this site to use on a temporarily basis... I still like OS but, that is an issue they seriously need to correct... Anyway, good luck to everyone here with this issue on OS...

I'm an Indie songwriter though, I use the word "Indie" rather loosely as it's changed meaning the last few years... I play guitar, sing, and write songs but I'm not a performing artist at heart... I just love creating music and songs; of all genres...My preference is those songs with a story in them and a message I can relate to...

Music has been a joy and passion all my life... It's allowed me to share the company (and, stage) with many great musicians and writers from all over the world... And, it just keeps getting better....

It's a bit of a human oddity in a way, music... We can't eat it, smell it, breathe it, or even wear it, but it's everywhere and has been since the dawn of human kind here on earth... It's a lot more than just a novelty of consequence... Sound with a rhythm is burned into our very beings in one way or another...

Someone once said, "Noone knows if there's music in Hell, but they can't imagine Heaven without it!" It's something we all associate with making life more enjoyable to do...

To me, music is about the SONG itself... Anyone can make noise and call it music... but, to make something memorable and lasting, it's message needs to be felt and shared by many... The greatest measure of any song's quality and durability is how often it's repeated... It's sound helps it to be heard and felt, but it's "message" is what brought it back around to be heard again...

Give that some thought when listening to any song, or artist, here on OurStage... We all know generic sound... It's dime a dozen because there are sooooooo many music makers out there today putting it out... It's truely getting harder and harder to find those songs that are somehow different from all the others, yet familiar enough to us in their story that we want to keep for ourselves...

I wish everyone here the best of luck with their music... Keep it coming; always keep it coming... Doug Jackson, Stuttgart, Arkansas
