The Jump. (It ain't easy Belize me.)

First off,

Thank you for everyone that has and continues to support the new single. It is available everywhere you listen to music, but here it is (see right) if you haven't had a chance to listen to it.

Now, to the Jump. (Topic)

Facebook Messenger Video Chat with Joshua Paul Copeland.

I had the awesome chance of speaking with a great, long time friend today. Last year, he dropped everything and took a job as a chef in Belize. Needless to say, I was shocked. I've never known him to be so bold. Let me clarify. He has always been a man pursuing growth and the desires of his heart, but this action is a bigger "jump" than I've ever seen him take.

I was so excited to hear the news, and see him follow through! I immediately made sure I was paying closer attention to his story because I knew it was going to be a big transition. I saw a friend I love taking action towards his desires and dreams. I wanted to make sure I actively provided any support I could.

He is now chillin' in Belize, and living the life HE wants. 

"What does the life you desire look like?"

This is the question that comes to my mind when I witness people desperately seeking something they are so certain must be for them. 

Here's my answer. 

Foundationally:

  • Good friends. 
  • Close family.
  • Happy wife.
  • Financial freedom (whatever that means.)
  • Kids (eventually.)

Work/Job/Career:

  • I want to have connected listeners that I share life with through the music I create and in person performances. (That's it. Everything else is just a catalyst to achieve this goal.)

This year is dedicated to spending every second, dime, resource to reaching potential listeners. It's not about being famous. It's about filling the void there would be if I did not. I don't want to look back at my life and say I didn't risk everything to pursue my desires, and niether should you. Whatever that looks like. Don't be careless or responsible, just pray and figure out what they are.

I have no clue how to do this, or what the next steps are. I'm reading and taking action every day trying to figure this business out.

One Major Priority : Radio Play

I'm currently doing everything I can to get "Tranquilo", my current radio single (unreleased to the public yet), on radio stations. If there is a radio station (including internet stations) you want to hear it on, let me know so I can send it. Then request it like crazy. This is one way you can help.

Second Priority: Spotify Verification

I need to be verified on Spotify in order to be considered for spotlight playlist adds. Trevor Lee Spotify Artist Page has 197 monthly listners and it is growing everyday, but there are only 152 followers. If you use Spotify, please follow and share the page with others to help. It needs 250 followers to become verified.

Lastly: Listener Connection

There are a lot of people listening that I know exist because I see the purchases and stream counts of my music. I want to hear about your lives and how the music is a part of it. Let me know. Don't be shy. You can show genuine support by SHARING  my music or promotional posts and saying what you like about it or why you are listening to it. This not only encourages me to keep creating for you, but exposes others to the music as well. Which, then helps me be able to create more.

At the end of the day it's not even about the music.

It's about the life connection it creates. 

Take your jump and encourage others to do the same.

Live. Create. Share.
