VMS News: The Rockit Club: If the House is A Rockin'- Pen Dragon Reporting...

What do you do if you have years of experience performing live in SL? Plus a ton of friends who are top notch live performers, as well as too much club equipment just sitting in your inventory? Well, if you are Tricky Digfoot, you follow a dream and open a small, laid back and fun live venue!
The Rockit is that venue. After performing live and being involved in a large sim aimed at the SL music scene, he decided to step out of his comfort zone and open his own venue at which he and his friends would perform and he could book other great live shows.
"I've performed in SL for a  few years now with a group.  We owned a sim at one point but they kinda went to big for me. It was bit much with my busy RL. So anyway, I had a lot of club equipment in my inventory that was just collecting dust so to speak. So I decided to open a club on a smaller parcel and keep it simple and a little less stressful."

VMS News: Tristyn Homewood : The Balladeer- Pen Dragon Reporting...

Music speaks to everyone. It has been called the universal language. Everyone has a song that points to a specific moment in time, a memory or an emotion. That is the power and the pull of music, and for one man, the voice and the passion of music has led him to over five years of performing in Second Life.
Trystyn Homewood was born into a musical family with his mother singing and his father playing guitar in country/bluegrass bands. However, growing up in Florida he was exposed to, and influenced by the southern rocks stylings of bands like Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd. When he discovered Second Life and the ability to perform live to an audience his interest was piqued and he started his journey.

VMS News: The Bare Bones of It -- Fun, Music & People. (Interview with Bones Writer, creator and owner of TRAX)- Klarissa Huntress Reporting...

Nestled in the middle of a pretty sim is a unique and comprehensive source of live music promotion. This is TRAX, Live Music Resource Center.
TRAX owner and creator, Bones Writer, is a humble man who downplays his remarkable achievements both in Second Life and real life.  His idea for TRAX was to create and promote, “a level playing field where everyone has opportunity and there is no elitism, everybody getting an equal chance to promote and market themselves.”

Bones is a professional musician with thirty years experience in the music industry, as a session player for artists like Jimmy Crespo of Aerosmith, and Billy Idol, or in the thick of a current New York Rock Opera version of Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities.

VMS News: Bluemonk Rau : Left off Rte 66, Right into SL- Pen Dragon Reporting...

Many Second Life artists can lay claim to performing their music for live audiences in the real world,  but few can say they have worked with some of the biggest venues and artists in their genre. Fewer artists still can boast 40 years as both a professional performer and recording artist.  Even fewer have the honor of being a founding member of a band that was once voted “L.A.'s Entertainer of the year.” Bluemonk Rau can say all of this and more of himself and his career

VMS News: Saintess Larnia in her Own Words- Thiza Ember Reporting...

The Support
I do remember my first concert at JLC Live. Jay Hurikan gave me my first break, owner of Virtual Music Services! It was mainly acoustic musicians and lots of regular performances. I had totally planned to sing in Second Life - that was my reason for coming here. My music career here is 100% supported by various people and without them; my career wouldn’t be the same. The teams that help me are my manager Lingual Markus, my assistants Teagan Sapphire.

Owen Landar & Tilly Morgath. The massive support from my fan group Saintess Souls who come to many gigs of mine sometimes twice in the same day! It can be very stressful to manage yourself alone.

VMS helping to make the music in SL

"Do I remember my first concert at JLC Live?" asked Saintess Larnia incredulously.  She continued "Absolutely I do, Jay Hurikan owner of Virtual Music Services gave me my first break.  It was mainly acoustic musicians and lots of regular performances.  I had totally planned to sing in Second Life - that was my reason for coming here.

The massive support from my fan group, Saintess Souls who come to many gigs of mine sometimes twice in the same day! It can be very stressful to manage yourself alone. Notices have to be sent to music groups, gigs to be booked and audience to welcome. Assistants attend every gig and give a warm welcome to each member of the audience. I have managed myself in the beginning and it was hard so now I am so grateful to have such a well organised team these days.

VMS News: Musician Bara Jonson: A Success Story - Angharad Catteneo Reporting...

Bara Jonson

Bara Jonson, a Second Life musician from Ă…hus, Sweden, has one of the greatest real life success stories I’ve encountered. I remember viewing a documentary on his Second Life so it was a treat to catch him live on the Grid. His music is a little alternative rock/country and his acoustic guitar complemented his strong voice. Listening to his performances, it’s easy to tell that Bara’s original songs were inspired by real life experiences.

I interviewed Bara about his music career and his journey to success.
Bara started with music at age seven and continued into his adult years. Around 1997 he took a ten-year break from music to concentrate on a business recruitment company. When the world’s economy took a nosedive in 2007, no one was hiring and as a result, recruitment companies weren’t needed. That was when he first started playing Second Life. The virtual world was a way to take his mind off of real life, although he had no knowledge of the music community within it.

“Well, I didn’t know anything about SL when I started. Then I thought about the idea of connecting a guitar and microphone to SL and maybe I could ‘find a place beside a fire to play for those who stopped by’,” he says of his first experiences in Second Life. Before he knew it, he had won the mediaculture Virtual Music Award of 2008 for Best Artist.
