After years of playing music as a hobby, recording other bands, and focusing my life on audio I’m finally taking the plunge. Time to become a full time musician/singer songwriter!
Its a difficult thing to give up a paycheck and security in times like these, but I am a firm believer that without our dreams and passions we are nothing. I’m fortunate enough to have circumstances that now allow me to quit my day job. It took years of saving and scrimping, but I believe it will be worth it!
Ive played piano since I was 7 and attended DU and UCD for music. I’ve put tens of thousands of hours of my life into this. All of my extra money has gone towards buying instruments and music gear of all kinds. Now I am going for my long time dream of becoming a full time songwriting musician! I can’t tell you how exciting this really feels!
Today I am flying to Austin to find a place to live and check out the music scene! I am extremely excited to see what it has to offer musicians. Will it turn out to be the “music capital of the World” everyone exclaims it to be? What will my place be in the already saturated music market? Only time will tell.
Stay tuned for many updates on the Austin music scene, Austin music conferences, and the process of starting a band with nothing more than my instruments, years of songwriting experience, and the hope that things can work out even in the most troubled economic times we live in.
With this blog I hope to inspire you to follow your own dreams! If you can’t follow them right now then hey, at least you can live vicariously through these experiences. Risking everything you have on a long time dream isn’t an easy thing to do after all 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. There will be a lot more to come!
