The Importance of Exposure: If It's Not One Thing, It's Another...

WELL, Johnny Jones had a great time during his appearance on the television show Do I Have A Hit Song, and although he did not win the episode -the winner of Episode 2 was Canadian singer/songwriter Dani Strong of the "stolen song" incident (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uk59T30PHpU)-, just the fact that Mr. Jones showed up, performed, and had the priceless opportunity of making contact with several persons in the music business helped him secure a publishing deal for four of his songs with an English music publisher!  Which means that the trip was worth the time and effort, and Mr. Jones was able to take an important step towards his goal of becoming a successful songwriter!   The moral of the story being: when you become involved with a large-scale project like a music talent contest, several doors can open, and it's up to the individual to make the best use of these windows of oppotunity!  We wish Mr. Jones the best of luck in his music business dealings!


Here is a fascinating PR piece released by the show's producers, based on an interview with Mr. Jones:

Johnny Jones, the Tampa, Florida based country artist, claims that he wrote his first song as a joke.  Some fifteen years later, his songs are certainly no joke.  His songs are wrapped in passion and his soul bending lyrics can only be defined as “heartfelt”.  Johnny has a unique ability of taking his life experiences and telling a universal story filled with emotion.  This seemingly natural ability is the result of Johnny’s experiences as a US Gulf War Veteran, a husband, a father of five, and son.  Johnny lives life, and is a master observer of those around him.  While Johnny has held many titles: soldier, writer, and others, now Johnny is known in the local grocery store where he works and throughout his community as the “Singing Janitor”.     A title that brings Johnny a sense of pride.  The Singing Janitor has written one of the most heartfelt songs to come around in recent memory.  Johnny will be performing "Daddy’s Little Boy" on Episode 2 of Do I Have a Hit Song.
"Daddy’s Little Boy" is a biographical song which was written while his wife was expecting Johnny’s third son.  In reality, the song was written about all three of Johnny’s boys.  Each verse is a “gift” to his boys, and tells a story of some of his favorite memories with each son as each child grew up.  Johnny takes pride in his music and believes that his music can positively affect people.  Johnny describes his musical style as “traditional, wholesome, country”.  Johnny’s professional goals are simple and he only has one.  He wants one of the world’s top country performers, like Alan Jackson, to sing one of the songs Johnny has written.  Johnny states that he is most comfortable when he is writing music.  “ I don’t need to be the one performing the song, I don’t need the fame, I’d just like people to hear the songs that I’ve written.”
Johnny explains that he is both nervous and excited to perform "Daddy’s Little Boy" on Do I Have a Hit Song’s World Stage.  His regret is that his mother, who passed away last year, will not be able to see her “Little Boy” perform; however, Johnny believes that his mother will be watching and there is no question he will make her proud.
