I’m introducing Tom Keifer from Cinderella this weekend at the APA National IEBA convention, to name a few awesome acts. It’s funny because I loved Cinderella growing up. I think the magic of the 80’s rubbed off on me when I wanted to be called “Goldy Locks” People called me that anyway. I had golden hair , I broke in to people’s homes usually looking for food, and I really liked poridge! I wasn’t that far off. J
So many supposed “experts” in the business always told me to change my name, or "why do you all yourself that?" Or… lol. Just get over it would you?
Now if you Google Goldy Locks, a ton of female fronted bands come up, rappers and artists alike. I was doing it way before it was cool people… simmer down. In fact my record company at the time of my deal spent over 300k on copywriting that name. Wow… where are those budgets these days?
No matter what anyone said, I stayed my course & stuck to my guns. I had a vision and I wasn’t about to let anyone get in the way. I was doing it the way I planned.
When you have a goal, you have all the visions, the “extended forecast” in your head. And unless someone is paying for them, or investing, or honestly trying to give constructive criticism, then they really need to shut up. Most just speak to hear themselves talk. That’s it. Remember than the next time someone is on your case when they don’t have all the facts.
All those years of people telling me differently… Ha ha. Google me now. I’m glad I kept my name!J
Years of efforts come up and I plan on continuing until I die.
This weekend “Goldy” gets to introduce “Cinderella” complete in a size 18 dress she bought & altered herself at the Goodwill for $14.99. Not too bad. No one will ever know. Our secret… -Goldy Knows.
