I meet hundreds of people a week,all ages, so frustrated they no longer have access to real artists but have no voice as corporate money rules. I’d like Britain to stop killing music. I had a meeting with Warner Bros who told me honestly that they look for males and females that can’t sing or write or play instruments therefore real artists are no longer required. He said every major label works the same way. 
Is it time for contemporary British composers/artists/musicians to finally hand in the towel???? 
Does anyone miss having original bands in the charts like we did until the 90s onwards? Queen, Dire Straights, Beatles, Kate Bush, The Smiths, Genesis, Bowie, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Cream, 10CC, Shakatak, Moody Blues, The Who, The Animals. Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Benjamin Britten, Acker Bilk, James Galway, Supertramp ..... the list is endless.

I’m starting this petition because I feel, as a country, we’ve been robbed of the joy of current original artists so we are now at the point of desperately clinging on to tribute bands to relive the joy we used to be allowed. I attend various underground venues and see the most original, genius musical brains to rival any of the past and of course current processed chart material, yet they’re playing for free or peanuts and will continue until they die never being heard.

If anyone feels the same as me I would be ecstatic if you sign the petition aimed at British media and promotional companies, labels etc.

I, personally, have composed since I was 5 years old, all styles, yet the media for 30 years have refused to play any new British composers, the biggest organisations ‘Classic FM’ and ‘BBC3’ insist on airing only past, mainly dead composers, my current symphony completely refuted despite 10 years of work and audiences raving about it (self funded).
Two stage musicals ignored and I understand that even Jools Holland will not have any pianist on that is a higher calibre than himself
Processed music, maybe soon even artificial intelligence music will kill everything if we let it

I have put in the above links to endorse my argument because I feel that as a nation we are worth so much more and it’s so often music that keeps us sane and alive!!
