Ben Howard Concert Photos

Ben Howard Photos from Fillmore Denver

One thing that is great about music streaming services is the ability to ping your friends when you find music they will love. My friend Andrew did that back in 2011 when Ben Howard’s Every Kingdom came out and, indeed, I loved it. Ben’s latest, I Forget Where We Were, also went into high rotation last fall.

A bunch of people in Denver share my admiration for this English singer-songwriter, because his recent show at the Fillmore Auditorium was sold out. It was a mellow show, as you might expect, but filled with lush music and great vocals, even though Ben himself said he was not feeling well. He often turned around and played back into his band, which sometimes can be disconcerting – but felt more like we were witnessing a special jam session that a bunch of people (the Fillmore holds 3,500 people) had been invited to.

    On the other hand, a good creative unrsaetdnds that sometimes, he or she doesn’t know more than the CD. And maybe has the wrong idea what a good CD should be.The article itself was well written, but some creatives are more concerned about how the CD treats their (Creatives) work, careers and egos than the business and work of the department. When in fact, the CD must balance all of those as well. A good CD fights, but does not blindly go into battle like some Creative Braveheart wannabe.A good CD will know when he has to be a jerk and when to be kind. A good CD knows when to babysit and when to leave you to the sharks so you will learn. (I know of one CD who was nurturing but when he was away, the creatives did not know how to fend for themselves, nor push themselves.)A good CD is prouder of his people than he is of his own work. A good CD brings out the best in you and doesn’t do your work for you. I still have a bad habit of stepping in and helping with the writing rather than getting the writer to work through it. Mostly because of time constraints. A good CD would defend the best idea, not necessarily his own. A good CD knows that sometimes the Creatives think they have a gem, but they don’t and will have to tell them so even when they think the CD just doesn’t see it. BUT the CD must be constructive in doing so. A good CD will know when to tell the creatives when “the suits are right on this one.” But will also know how to tell the suits to toe the line.A good CD is one whose name you’ll WANT to put on the credits list even if he himself chooses not to.In my old department, before I was a CD, the ECD often took out his name from the credits. But his troops (us) wanted to share the wins with him so we kept sneaking in and putting his name back. That’s the kind of CD I want to be.

    Didn’t know the forum rules allowed such brilliant posts.

    This is a very serious subject. I have never known anybody in my life to commit suicide. But to say that I have never thought about it would be a lie. Life is harder than a trigonometry test, but you can’t give up. There is always a brighter day. Thanks Mel.
