It is early in the morning, and it just started snowing. I am going through all the music I want to do this year. The places I want to play, who I want to perform with, the songs I want to record. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. Juggling a full time social media career and a part time music career is really not for everyone. Yes, it is an advantage that I can promote myself easily and well. But, being a performer is not just about promotion and showing up. It takes practice, hard work, many phone calls and long hours – often for little pay. It is worth it for me.
