You may have heard me speak before of my editor, Ryan Hurtgen. He was born a musician, but has a powerful literary, artistic, and historic range. This makes for some remarkable creative synergies (with our automated horizon, a most valuable currency).
Ryan works all the time. Whether it is writing new music, rehearsing a piece, booking and management, sound engineering, producing in studio, working on a painting, or listening to a predecessor in his current genre, Ryan works all the time.
Conscientiousness goes a long way. His latest project, Perfect Beings, has recently recorded their third album, a touchstone moment for a fully crowd-sourced labor of love. But dig this, it runs deeper. It gets bigger. The latest news from Perfect Beings‘ website:
We are excited to announce that Perfect Beings have just signed with renowned prog-rock label InsideOut. A new album will be released in early 2018.
That’s right, Perfect Beings has signed a multi-record deal with InsideOut records, (distributed globally through Sony). A record deal with a prominent label! How must that feel?
Ryan and I have spoken a bit about Perfect Beings signing a record deal after years of successful crowdfunding. Also, how it feels to achieve this goal – the coveted distribution deal – set out for long ago when he left Hillsborough, Missouri for Nashville, Tennessee, to make his way in the music business.
Because of so many incremental steps of growth that lead to this goal, reaching the actual goal did not feel as dramatic as he imagined it would. “There were many small steps along the way, and I had to take each one, and this was the next one. “
Now to mobilize the business end of the Perfect Beings enterprise. Time to play the festivals, refashion marketing campaigns, hire the right people. More work, but work he cares about. Labor of love makes good, I say. Way to keep at it, Perfect Beings!
