I am not with FRISKY anymore

Dear friends,

today I officially quit my role at FRISKY. I also discontinue my 3 shows, LIGHTWORKS, TIME OUT and Release Promo Hype Charts, on FRISKY with immediate effect.

I would like to thank the countless fans who have been loyal to me and my shows for more than 12 years. I would also like to thank all the artists and music industry partners with whom I have had the pleasure of working successfully over this long period of time. That was an incredible journey!

Circumstances that I can not talk publicly about right now have forced me to take this step. I am very sad that things have developed this way, and there is no reason to celebrate, but, as you all know, endings are just beginnings.

My shows have been incredibly successful. The good news is: I will continue differently, very soon. You will love it, promised. I will inform you as soon as possible about the new ways.

Career adjustments are part of life. I am flexible and confident enough and still have more than enough strength to grow other fruits.

Words can not express how thankful I am for 12+ years of your loyalty and love! As much as my heart is broken, it beats for the new paths to take, with your loyalty in my luggage.

Thank you very much.

12 Things You Should Never Say To a Musician

  1. So Are You Trying To Be A Musician

    I am a musician. Not trying. Trying to be a musician is watching the first YouTube video on how to hold a guitar. Not what I have done for the past 15 years. That is BEING a musician.

  2. You Sound Like…

    I know you’re trying to be nice by putting me in good company, but musicians want to feel original. We don’t want to hear we sound like everyone else. That we’re unoriginal. It’s fine for you to sell your friends on listening to someone new by comparing them to well known artists, but when talking to a musician, the best compliment is “you sound like YOU and it’s awesome.” Unless you’re talking to a pop producer, then yeah, “it sounds like Katy Perry” is probably the best compliment you could give.

  3. You Should Try Out For American Idol

    I will slap you.

  4. When Am I Going To Hear You On The Radio?

    When your radio plays better shit.

  5. You Should Be On The Voice

    Because that’s a career builder. Right Jermaine?

  6. You Must Love Karaoke

    No, actually, I hate karaoke because I have to listen to you sing.

  7. Can I Get On The List? Plus 1?

    You don’t have $10 to support my music, but you have $50 for the round of shots you just bought everyone?

  8. What’s Your Real Job?

    It’s this little field called music. It’s way more real than those TPS reports you put together for the Bobs.

  9. What’s Your Backup Plan

    What’s yours?

  10. It Will Be Great Exposure

    Meaning, it doesn’t pay. No thanks.

  11. I Have A Great Idea For A Song

    And I have a great idea on how you can fix my faucet better. But let’s keep these things to ourselves.

  12. Free Bird

    That stopped being funny in ’97.
