"With great power comes great responsibility"
People, partners. Harmony, rhythm. Instruments, life and art. Mix all that with the magic of musical talent and most often you have music. Making music is not always just inspiration, sweating is part of the process and without this step one does not build anything. The scenario you paint when trying to describe a musician, is not far from when it comes to a poet, sculptor or any artist who battles for a successful hit. They're all looking for a generous and influential patron or are left to their own luck. The paths are not only infinitely tortuous between anonymity and success, even with a "good contact" the life of a musician not always gets better. Get talented musicians together - from the same tribe, that play the same songs, that enjoy the same rhythms - with great teams, on the right locations and make it all work, that is always a challenge.
The digital world has improved the spreading of music,, but the musician if left behind. Youtube, Facebook, MySpace, online radios and digital labels, and even LinkedIn (!) are all venues for music to present itself, to show that exceptional viral talent of the month or to 'sell' keyboard players that can only play in restaurants around. The musician continues its difficult endeavour anyways, In order to promote their talent they still need someone who can record their sound and image. They need partnerships or other instruments, need structure, support and all the stars aligned with the Earth so that they, at the end of the day, years later, are playing their own show with their own band, making what their talent, in form of gift, already foresaw, success.
Being a musician is currently very difficult... ENOUGH!
We are not superheroes. But as music and technology lovers, we could not just stand handcuffed while an increasing number of musicians - whether professional, amateur, or even supporters of musicians or professionals who work with music - have difficulties to produce their true passion!
Thinking about this, we decided to join our talents and change the life of musicians. And that is why we created fleeber! But who are we?
