David Sanchez: A Candid Look at Music and Business Part 2-2
AAJ: In other words, if they're gonna keep you, they might as well be pushing your product in the new ways of the market.
DS: Yeah because otherwise, I know, I know there's some accounting guy probably saying, "You know what? This is irrelevant."
AAJ: We don't need this.
DS: "We don't need this. Whatever - tax write-off." It could be a tax write-off. BAM - right there. Museum, art, classical music. Whatever. "And then we focus on that. This is where our real money is. We're gonna focus on that. Right away.
That's the mentality. We're talking about people who listen to music probably once a week. They have the regular jobs. And they know about numbers. And they went to business school or accounting. And that's what they do - they make decisions. I'm telling you based on statistics and numbers.
AAJ: Yeah. Talk about not focusing on their other genres. This is really a drawback for you in particular. When I try to go on the web and access information about David Sanchez through Sony, it's impossible.
DS: I believe it. Yeah, that's why I'm doing my own website...
AAJ: I saw - www.davidsanchezmusic.com . When I search your name in Google your private site doesn't come up until the third or fourth page of hits because the major label stuff, which is useless to someone like me, who wants to find out what you've been up to and where you're gonna be in the next few months.
DS: Unfortunately. Somebody owns my domain. So I cannot do DavidSanchez.com.
AAJ: There's another David Sanchez.
DS: Yeah, a lawyer - in California. And we tried to buy it and he wasn't selling. Anyways, so I had to call it davidsanchezmusic.com. With Sony it's a joke. I mean, when I went last time, I saw the website and it was talkin' about what's new, they had 1999 gigs. I'm like, "What?" Unbelievable.
AAJ: And where else can we become informed. Your booking agent?
DS: Ed Keane. He will have my information too. www.edkeane.com
AAJ: When I looked on the Sony page, I happened to come upon some new tour info for you but it was bare mimimums. Just the date and the city you would be in. No venues or times or phone numbers. You're expected to find out for yourself. And most people are not as experienced and perseverant as me in finding this stuff out. Where's the logic there?
DS: I know.
