Hi Dear Ones -
Pages fly off my wall calendar like something from an old movie leaving me in disbelief that so much time has passed since my last post. Still, here we are now. You and me. We. So let's talk.
How have you been? I'd love to know. I thought recently about the one-way conversation that a blog can be and how I'd so prefer having a conversation with you. We can call it a "blog-ologue", yes? I blog, you -ologue back. (Yeah, I know, they call it commenting but I mean can't we just expand the whole thing a bit?)
I'll kick it off:
If you are an independent singer-songwriter (or another indie creative-type) tell me how do you feel about the whole DIY thing? Do you ever long for the days of patrons? When artists could be artists only...single-mindedly building their skills, stretching their creative muscles, dreaming under the stars about music/literature/dance/art of the future?
Or do you love the whole multi-tasking, many-hatted thing? Doing sales/marketing/writing/booking/engineering/singing & songwriting in a constant shifting of roles & responsibilities?
So, that's it. Just one question, curiously placed out into the ethers. Are you there? Respondez s'il vous plait.
Best wishes to you.
