Back in 2010, while researching the benefits of supposed “sound healing”, our family started sampling and playing new musical instruments.
We came across these “crystal singing bowls” and after practicing, Lucia and the kids performed and we recorded with 3 microphones to “studio record” ALL of the bowls playing at once and individually, plus just have a little fun. A few months later, I added this recording as a Bonus Track to an Buddhist Monks and “spiritual seekers” outreach to introduce the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of people worldwide started downloading our music, “borrowing” it for YouTube projects and other flattering usages. At the same time, we also started our venture into singles and albums consumer direct marketing and promotional campaigns on all social media mediums, but found YouTube to be one of the best platforms for millions of amazing listeners for free. We made 1000 times more from people stealing our spoken word and music compared and monetizing to how many people ever bought one album or single. Why? Because we claimed nearly 100,000,000 videos with more than 1 Billion views with 100 tracks we created…we were BLOWN away at how many videos were using our “Meditation Music”.
Back in March of 2019, our main “Your Strategy Coach” YouTube channel receiving millions of views per month and just 2,200 subscribers, sharing positive messages, projects, charities and even home movies that was sending me 5-10 business coaching clients per month was gone. We have reached out to YouTube without response and fully support The President’s Anti-Censorship pursuits against digital giants such as Google, Twitter and Facebook.
Our audio and visual productions of videos of speeches, poetry or sound work never received the Lionshare of views on YouTube. In fact, some very well known producers of Motivational and Inspirational video channels all started sampling. Others would create AMAZING visual representations to express visually what we wrote or produced. It was flattering, but there were YouTube channels generating $10,000+ per month on using our work without even acknowledging the author or producer. Frustrating and perplexing…so rather than complain, we sought out to solve the “audio theft” problem of the music industry…and CRUSHED IT!
It taught us some challenging lessons, realizations of potential millions in stolen usage, but without the knowledge of our artist rights, we wouldn’t have ever generated a dime. We learned the lesson through the struggle, ALL THE GLORY TO GOD for my knowledge of music production, artist management and copyright law were able to generate and recover nearly ALL monetized views and usage worldwide.
We learned through great trials and tribulations including the theft of our original works “More Was Never Enough” by some Muslim DJ from Texas to create EDM/Dance music for TikTok and Commercials all over Asia. There are many “DJs” doing this on YouTube and then selling internationally without ANY of the licensing rights or proper partnerships, it’s not the way. Honesty, integrity, fair compensation and transparency are invaluable in business relationships and these business deals can never begin with theft.
I will say that my lesson for NOT protecting our music, turned me into Jerry Maguire for our 120 tracks and 20+ albums (and growing, see NEW RELEASE below) with 5 sources of revenue rather than 1-2 which the Tunecore’s of the world offered. Several years went by and nothing, but once I became an ASCAP Artist and Management Label, we found literally millions of videos, views, plays and outright theft recovery and finally started getting paid!
One of the recent surprise blessings (all the glory to God) came in from ASCAP from “Orquestra Antiga De Meditação” recording used in Brazil on a Portuguese Health, Family and Fitness network television show!
Because of the amazing amount of comments, messages requesting to download the original tracks, we have re-released the original album in Portuguese with a copy of the Gospel of John which best explains “Jesus is the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God”, our savior and redeemer.

Please consider any sales as direct support for our Christian Outreach campaigns. We must trust that the Word of God converts souls as the Bible says, so sharing the Good News and Gospel of Jesus Christ with the World is what we were commanded to do. If one person gets to hear the gospel in Brazil due to searching for our album from being featured on TV, all the glory to God.
Since we found that every single one of our tracks gets stolen and uploaded to millions of dark websites around the world, we always add the Gospel to nearly every album we release to ensure that even in their theft and assisting others to steal, God is glorified, hopefully they will ALL repent and trust in Him alone, for we have ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Seeking the lost requires us sometimes to leave the 99…
God Bless you and your families always and forever in the name of Jesus!
Your brother, Brian J. Cimins
