The Bands Respond to My Music Articles

I've been writing articles on bands and their songs for 88.9 Hey Radio. After I'd done 6 articles I realized that I should send the articles to the bands and see if I get any responses. Four of the bands responded. Here's what they said.

Wow, Jeff! This is awesome! Thank you so much! Have you had our songs in rotation?

Zahna said:
Thanks so much for that write up!

Amongst the Giants said:
Wow! This is amazing! Thank you so much for taking the time to write all of this. So crazy!

Hey there jeff, I really appreciate you sharing the article with us.  I get personal satisfaction in hearing how our songs are viewed from various perspectives, especially with a critical and keen eye like yours.  What was most interesting to me was your take on how the song more matches the communicative properties of a comic book rather than a movie.  It's something I wouldn't have considered if I hadn't read your article. I will say I haven't ever read an aquaman comic book, and I havn't seen the aquaman movie yet either.   And although the song title and lyrics contain his name, the song isn't really about Aquaman at's a metaphor for someone else with powers.   But I'll leave it at that 😉

I was wondering how you heard of us, we're quite a small band, and I'm not familiar with 88.9 hey radio, are they a local radio station?

happy new year

Also, two of the bands shared the articles on their Facebook pages. Here's what they posted.

This is insane! Go check out this SUPER in depth look at the lyrics for “Lost in Translation” by Jeffrey Alexander Martin! Thank you for taking the time to write this!

Hey, here's a thought provoking blog written on our song "The Ministry of Aquaman". Thanks Jeff Martin!

That's all pretty good feedback. Also, I keep hearing about more and more people that liked the super in-depth article that I did on Amongst the Giants. I wanted to see how far I could go with it, and apparently other people like seeing that too. Our world tends to be shallow for a number of reasons. There is a desire for depth too. That makes me feel better about the world.
