Do you think you should make one song that is a little "commercial" ? So you can break through to be high profile in the public's eye. Nothing cheesy, but something like Adele. Jeff

I know what you are saying and I do appreciate and contemplate the blending of art and commerce...the problem is the lines of commerciality in music are blurred for me and if I approach music with the intent of being commercial, I simply won't connect personally and it will suck! :) My intent is to write songs that I connect with first and that will then perhaps connect us all in this boat called life! Pondering this question I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite comedians...and no disrespect meant to Adele by the way.
"Do a commercial, you're off the artistic roll call, every word you say is suspect, you're a corporate whore and eh, end of story." -Bill Hicks
