AGENDA 23: Electronic Music by Nick Myer

guest post written by Nick Myer/AGENDA 23

If you crave all things electronic, dance with elements of an 80's retro feel .and a sense of real songs, melody and meaning with good messages sewn in..for your listening pleasures.. You may well appreciate the first offerings from AGENDA 23, a music project created by Nick Myer.

No stranger to songwriting, Nick from England UK, a past exclusively signed songwriter for a brief period of time, and having signed several songs since over the years since, is offering some free song tasters from AGENDA 23 with more to follow for FMA.

Expect to hear simplistic, complex, melodic and emotional songs with meaning from AGENDA 23. Making songs too samey is not the goal with AGENDA 23. So in the future expect the unexpected. Most of the songs from AGENDA 23 will be female vocal/voice driven though but occasionally Nick adds his vocal contribution such as on WAKE UP NOW and THE PLANET as the robot voice. WAKE UP NOW is a song that was composed to encourage the world to see things how they really are and not how they are presented as an illusion. And of course to entertain. THE PLANET a song written some time prior to WAKE UP NOW, after a really scary dream about this world, is about Saving Earth and of course the people... to a backdrop of musical drama.

But don't expect it to stop AGENDA 23 will be pushing out purely romantic love songs too..with no strict rules on genre. Whatever genre a song feels like it should be, that will be the treatment that will be applied.. in a loving way of course.. Nick cares deeply about Planet Earth and good health on this spinning ball of earth and rock we all live these debut songs are focused on that most important theme.

Creativity is deeply engrained within Nick's being so to speak re creators within his own family tree.. Nick just happens to be Second Cousin to well-known Film Director Garth Jennings most recently known for Directing and creating the movie 'SING' but with a huge repertoire of work preceding that very successful movie... Though oddly the two have not yet met. A little fact of interest. Nick has however met his parents on several occasions..a long story. Nick has also worked with some very well established people in the past in his music endeavors.. Another very long story that will one day be told... But for now..

Well thanks for your nice note of 02/01/2018 at 09:00PM on my wall. As a social media incompetent, I just discovered that I had a wall, and that people might contact me there. I'll watch out for the next Lonely Hearts or similar event. Cheerio.
