A message from Peter Link

We are Watchfire Music, an on-line store and music company dealing mainly in Inspirational music. Additionally we have a division called Watchfire New Media that deals in both Social Media and Crowd Funding management as well as Website design, building and maintenance.

Our Mission Statement states that Inspirational Music is music “to brighten your life and enliven your soul. We are a trans-denominational music company. We embrace all spiritual ideas but promote no religious theology. Our Inspirational music spans all cultures, religions and people.  


We believe that all people have inside of themselves truth, life, love, spirit, soul. And so we serve all mankind.

And how? With simple “feel good” music.  A love song can be an Inspirational song: “I got up this morning and I feel good” is an Inspirational lyric.

We have no doctrine to preach, no mission to serve except to offer positive value in our music and lyrics.

‘I have seen Him in the watch fires

Of a hundred circling camps’

*from "Battle Hymn of the Republic" Lyrics by Julia Ward Howe

It is our mission only to be a gathering of light.”

It impressed me this morning, as I write, to review this statement written nearly ten years ago. I’m grateful to say that it still holds firm. It is the statement of our mission in life and we work every day to see that this credo is followed to the “T”.

It also strikes me that as we have evolved over these past years, that “giving” has been our constant doing. If you were to ask me what my own personal credo was in life, I’d have to say it is that “The good you do equals the good that you receive.” Both my partner, Julia Wade, and I deeply believe this and run our lives around this life concept.

I think this also has a lot to do with giving as well. We’ve both found that another absolute truth is that when things are going a bit tough, when there are financial challenges or any kind of setbacks, just take a broad look at life and see where you can give more. When we do, the return from that giving always balances things once again.

So in Watchfire Music we see our opportunity to give and give and give. The return is not always financial, for in these times the music world is in a state of great flux as music becomes free, but the return is definitely on a high spiritual basis – not only for the appreciation of our own music, but also the appreciation for the inspiration that all our artists and composers put out to the world.

Usually this column tells you what’s new and what’s coming. This month it just seemed like a good idea to restate the principles by which we create and share.

If you want to find out what’s new and what’s coming, just look to your right.

In the meantime,

Stay tuned.

Creative Director
