Mark Edwards QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A few years later I came across some Taller CD's in a used store that had 2 different printings on the CD face (the original had a 3rd printing on the face), indicating to me that they had done at least 3 pressings on the CD, while they had only accounted to me for one.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
At the time I attempted to purchase the rights back for the 3 Homestead records, but the owner demanded an outrageous sum in the neighborhood of $10,000, about 10 times more money than I could get my hands on at the time.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
Cleveland is the place I grew up and lived much of my adult life, so it will always be a part of my soul.

I am pretty detached from the local music crowd though.

I don't think my music is changed enough. There are many songs that I end up scrapping because they sound too much like something I've done before.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I followed most of the 80's bands into the 90's as most of those folks who hadn't moved away were all still active. However, there was a point when I lost track of the new bands coming up.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I had thought previously of moving from Cleveland, mostly to get away from the weather, and had plans to move to Austin in 1990 that fell through (even went so far as to spend a couple of weeks there looking for housing and work), due to lack of an income of any kind.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I have always abhorred the business end of music.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I occasionally miss big city things, like major league baseball, a large art museum, more choices when shopping for musical equipment etc.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I pretty much ignored politics all through my 20's and 30's... I had other things on my mind... the band, finding a meaningful relationship, getting enough money to eat and pay the rent.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I probably had the most fun recording For Richer For Poorer in Nashville.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I tried for several months last year to put together a band for live performance, but could never get everyone together on a consistent basis.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
I'm glad you asked that, because no one asks about the cover photos, (all taken by my wife Jeanne) and all of which have a dual meaning that relates specifically to my feelings about Cleveland, and also about the nature of commerce and how it drives our society.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
In my mid 30's, after a decade or so of giving full time to the music thing and finding myself with about $10 in the bank and no assets other than my musical equipment, I realized I needed to get serious about making a living.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
It was a serendipitous arrangement, and I now have enough income that I am not in danger of homelessness if the next record doesn't make money.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
It's increasingly looking like it will be on my own label, so like many things of quality, will be hard to find in a store. I will sell it directly from the website, and hopefully a few online distributors, and will try to get at least one national indie distributor to pick it up.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
Many of the songs on the new record underwent drastic changes in arrangement, tempo and dynamics with the addition of the other band members.

Mostly though this desire just springs from an idea for a guitar lead, or vocal melody etc. that I come up with well after the recording is finished.
Quotation of Mark Edwards

Quotation of Mark Edwards
The turning point for me was when the Supreme Court installed Bush in 2000, even though he got half a million votes less nationally than Gore. It was nothing more than a bloodless coup and that's when I really started paying attention.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
There's nothing remotely interesting to me about marketing music as a product.

This gave me an out of the contract and I decided not to do the record with Homestead. After that, they stopped sending me statements.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
To me, all war is failure for humanity, though it often is a bounty for commerce.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
While Cleveland can also be desolate, it does have many areas of natural beauty, the Lake Erie shoreline being one.
Quotation of Mark Edwards
You can't get away from who you are I guess.
