Porcelain Doll Riff

Why the hell haven’t we heard more of Megan McCauley’s music?  Some of you may have watched her sing “Porcelain Doll” on the Dr. Phil show a few years back.  She and her stage mother were trying to resolve their mother/daughter issues before the final commercial break but it didn’t quite work out.

After the show I waited for days, weeks, then months, but nothing.  Not a single peep about this absolutely fabulous singer.  I thought for sure she’d become a huge star. 

Then I remembered something.  Demographics, Q-ratings, and the Britney factor.  McCauley doesn’t neatly fit into a teen popqueen box.  She's cursed with the Albino Gazelle syndrome.  She’s different, tough to market. 

Maybe it’s something else.  Is she a nightmare to work with?  Does she have an insane proclivity for semi-sweet chocolate covered prunes and promoters think it’s too difficult a rider request to fill? 

Does she talk back to managers and label mucky mucks?  Is she too far out in left field?  WHO CARES!?  I want to hear more of her music and I think the world deserves to experience her remarkable talent. 

I'm just sayin'.
