“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless  wintering.”       – Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World


Welcome to Deezelmama, delighted you’re here to share my musings on the myriad of experiences that colour my life as a Label Mama. I am inspired by creativity and curious about how it connects to being human. I know there’s a tribe of us. My own life lens is music and the music biz, my energy and creativity are focussed on this community. Sometimes it’s a crazy life, but I’m passionate about living it. So, hitch a ride as I share my journey. I’ll explore my projects, my record label Underfoot Records, and the thoughts that rattle inside my head. Perhaps Deezelmama will thaw your mind and ignite a fire in you too.

My virtual trash is overflowing. Eventually the sane voice scrambled to the fore- and pushed stage fright aside. No one really cares whether you do, or don’t, so do it anyway. Belly flops make for better divers, and the sting is good for circulation. This is my first set of musings, at least an introduction, it will be good enough, and I will no longer be the virgin blogger. Hal
