Hey dude, I’m trying to preserve the legacy of the brand here. As if.
The little ‘suntower’ logo was created twenty something years ago during another life I had as a software guy. It was supposed to represent “Tir Na Gréine” a real place in the west of Ireland, literally ‘the tower of the sun’. It always had a magical sound to me. Back when the record company was ‘suntower music’ it made sense. But then again, no one associated ‘suntower music’ with ‘JC Harris’ so we changed the business to JCHMusic to make it easier for people to find us. The ‘sun’ is a bit of harmless nostalgia.
Yeah, but what about Siberian Khatru?
D’Oh! I knew you were gonna ask. I had no idea it had anything to do with the rock band ‘Yes’ and that fabulous song, until after I started selling my own CDs and people started pointing it out. Really truly. (Look, could you understand any of the lyrics to that song when you heard it? Me either.) Just one of those synchronicities of life, I suppose. But, unlike Jon Anderson, I actually had some meaning in mind when I chose the word.
