Why I Haven't Blogged In So Long?

To whom it may concern.


I haven't been blogging in a long while. The last time I blogged was in February. I have a tendency to run out of things I wanted to say. I didn't want to blog about anything unless it was about my music. It gets boring just blogging about the same old thing.


I know I don't have a huge following or anything like that. I know that I am not a big star. Shucks, I don't even have a local following in the local music scene in Dayton.


I am forty-seven years old. I am a black male with autism. I am an artist. I don't think that the public is ready for a forty-seven year old autistic black artist who writes instrumentals. The climate of the music business these days sucks. It is about eye candy and not ear candy.


I am not signed to a record label. In fact, I don't want to be. I have been an artist for seven years doing it all by myself. I don't know how long I will be an artist. I will always write but it is getting to a point within five years time that I will shut down some of my music pages.


I know I will have to promote harder online. I just don't want to put the same links over and over on Twitter as well as Facebook like I am spamming for no good reason.


There are lots of great artists out there who are doing the indie route as well. I have listened to lots of artists and groups on Reverbnation. Some of them are excellent. Some of them are good. Some of them really suck, needless to say.


I need  a reason to keep blogging but I just need to blog when I have something to say.


I am going to be me. I am not going to be something that I'm not. I won't start right now. One day I will just fade away. That is all for now.


Disappointed,
Robert L. Watson

My Musical Plans For 2014

To all of my fans.

Here are my musical plans for 2014. I plan on finishing new instrumental songs that I have been working on during the first part of 2013.

I plan on doing more video blogs showing my instruments as well as effects. I also plan to do more music videos.

The way I work on my music is that I take my time and I do it right. I don't believe in rushing in creativity. If you rush creativity then the music suffers as well as the artistry.

That is pretty much it for me as an artist for 2014.

Please check me out here at these sites.

What I Would Like To Do In The Future Musically?

Hello everyone.

This is my first blog in a few months. I know you all probably wondering what I would like to do in the future. On a musical level I would love to write instrumental music for independent films. I have always been attracted to independent films.

I would like to keep growing as an artist as well. I believe as an artist you have to grow or your music will get stale and boring. I am still going to keep that belief in myself and remember why I am making music in the first place.

In closing, I would like to say thank you for all of the support. Peace.

"Musical Visions, Vol. 2"

Hello everyone.

My new release "Musical Visions, Vol. 2" is finally out. Here are the nineteen songs analyzed in detail.

FLYING HIGH WITH THE PEOPLE I LOVE: A slow rock instrumental song that recalls some of the grooves from the late 1960's and early 1970's.

OCCUPY: An ode to the Occupy movement. This instrumental is very progressive rock influenced.

UNCLE FUZZY: A psychedelic rock instrumental song tour de force. My niece called me that because of my beard.

BROTHERS: A mid tempo instrumental that goes places from New Orleans to funk and finally to hard rock.

SNAKE: A very funky, funky, funky instrumental that has to get into your psyche. This one has to be listened to many times.

COLD NIGHT: A very nice slow rock instrumental.

LOVERS SHARING A ROMANTIC EVENING: This one is a laid back smooth jazz and r&b instrumental. This one is for the lovers.

THE WALKER: This instrumental was influenced by rock music of the early to mid 1960's. The Ventures were in my head when I came up with this tune.

ULTRA FUNKY: Another instrumental with a smooth jazz and funk flavor.

FLOWING WATER: This one has a New Orleans feel. It is very moving shall we say.

TRACEY'S SONG: A traditional jazz instrumental. This is a dedication song to my older sister.

A SONG FOR MY FATHER: A slow rock instrumental. This one is a dedication to my father.

I WANT TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH SOMEONE: This instrumental is very inspired by the Motown era.

AURORA, COLORADO (JULY 20, 2012): This instrumental is a dedication song that is dedicated to the people who lost their lives on that fateful tragic day.

I WANT TO GIVE ALL MY LOVE TO YOU: This is a Barry White-Love Unlimited Orchestra inspired instrumental. This one is for slow dancing.

TOXIC WORLD: Another hard rocking instrumental that is so awesome and so addictive.

FIGHT TO THE FINISH: This one is very New Wave-ish. It keeps you moving.

AMERICA'S NIGHTMARE: A hard rock-heavy metal instrumental with just three guitar tracks with no bass.

DESTRUCTION: A midtempo instrumental that starts off with a fast groove and it ends with an all way out psychedelic groove. Groovy baby. Yeah!!!

"Musical Visions, Vol. 2" is now available at these digital stores.
