At least we hope all artists do. We know many don't succeed, they sell out or buy in- or just plain give up. In their youth they are invigorated, enlivened and inspired. They want to fight against, rise above, and stand tall.
It's sad, it's a phenomenon that seems to creep up on the individual like a silent killer, or a mind altering disease. Fans scream out in question, what happened to the people, the musicians who used to enlighten with such honesty and sing with such poignancy? Where is the relevancy?
It's not just in music, it's everywhere- and not only in the art world.
But as artists, Zella Mayzell feel a responsibility. Not to be idolized, not to look down on or judge those we consider "fallen" or "complacent". As artists and as humans we are as flawed as the next group on the next wave of whatever the "next big thing is". There are no delusions of grandeur- only a hope that we can fight against the temptations and woes of the art and business world- for a purpose. To get the music out there, without watering down, without whiting out a single line written. To get the music out there and inspire rock out sessions on long car drives, to inspire listeners to stand up and try harder. To get the music out there for the times when doors are slammed in anger or hands are held in solace. We want more than anything to chase after the feeling that we have now in our youth all the way into our respective futures. The feeling that we are all here for a reason, the words we say, the relationships we build, the lives we intersect with- and the songs we sing- do matter, and matter greatly.
Not for ego, not for attention, and not for fame- but because we're all in this together and making music is for us, helping out the best way we know how.
