The Earth

by Joel R. Cooper & Ike Thurston

This tune represents a very unique collaboration. My good friend Ike Thurston, a professional touring drummer with exceptionally keen musical instincts, sent me his drum track, to which I then added parts until "The Earth" emerged. That's the whole story!

Album Notes
It is so difficult to talk about oneself! But I'll try. Let me say first that music has been an enormous part of my life from a very early age. I was born in Southern California near Los Angeles and I grew up there at a time when the West Coast music business was still evolving and super hot. It was a time of great creativity, a time when artists had room to experiment, grow, and leave many indelible marks on the industry as a whole. Back then, DJs would play records just because they liked them, and careers were often launched with just the spin of a record on a turntable. Remember those? LOL

Today's music business has changed so so much. It bears little if any resemblance to what it was during those magic times in Hollywood. But the need for great music remains. In fact, the need has never been stronger! I think my co-writing partner on this tune, Ike Thurston, would agree. Digital music technology has opened many doors for both recording artists and audiences as well.

But it still all comes down to one fan, or one listener, who has a real appreciation for your music. There can never be any substitute for this! I operate on the principle that if something sounds good to me, if something feels good to me, it will likely resonate with someone else out there as well. When I go into the studio, I leave all preconceptions behind and I turn off the button in my brain that would love to tell me to stop because it will never be good enough for human, or even animal, consumption. I go with the flow. And what comes out of my sessions often surprises me. Hopefully you like what you hear and will continue to follow me and my esteemed musical colleagues. Our fondest hope is that you will enjoy the music we produce!
