Get ahead in music by changing your name.

Maybe the oddest thing I've come across in recent months.

Interesting. It is rather bizarre.

Not sure what Arthur expects tbh. His music is very bland and he plays like he's accompanying hymns in the school assembly.

Still, the name change seems to have generated some publicity though. Could have maybe gone with a more interesting name?

Ashkenazy...Grimaud...Wang...Parker

Yeah it's great but not the way to get your serious music attempts to be taken seriously! The name is now the thing, not the music.

All very strange.

I suggest...

"Plutonius"

Don’t focus on the music too much. Focus on the promotion and marketing.

Joe Green had to change his name to Giuseppe Verdi to be taken seriously as an opera composer.

I think it works the other way around as well, if you are a middleaged overweight bald smoking male producer, do not appear in your productions, don't sing and don't be in the videoclip.

It's not going to work out well

Hire some young chick to do the singie and dancy stuff.




On the other hand, there might actually be an audience for this

I showed this video via Skype to my London publisher the other day.

Haha! That was funny. Who says publishers don't have a sense of humour.
