As we hit the end of 2013, we have spent these final weeks planning what 2014 is going to be about.

What is the plan for Music Television exactly? The plan is NOT to regurgitate what the major label system and mainstream media (that is getting lamer) seems to want us to believe is the hottest thing.  This is about artists, bands and songwriters who have paid their dues, honed their craft and who have avoided the trap of being manufactured by producers, publicists and the typical Hollywood hype machine.

This channel is about genuine authentic artists who we have focused on year after year... Artists like Gaby Moreno, who this year was finally recognized as "Best New Artist" when she won that Latin Grammy in 2013. And, this channel is about artists of substance like Nneka, perhaps the closest thing to a modern day living female Bob Marley. And Trixie Whitley, whose song Breathe You In My Dreams should be considered song of the year by any and all music organizations worth a darn. Fantastic organic groups like SHEL is what this company is about. Great pop/rock groups like Saucy Monky and amazing artists like Dom La Nena. And, there is no way I can forget to mention the fabulous Lianne La Havas.... Sorry I can't think of any male artists or groups to plug at this moment. Perhaps this was the year of the great female artists!

Happy New Year Everybody! GC
