Life is a bit manic…
Sometimes you’ve just got to throw yourself in the deep end and start swimming.
All those years of planning and wondering how to get things done –
– this is how: Shut up and get on with it.
playing at open mics and researching/visiting venues.
wondering what to wear! And shopping, a lot.
dragging various mates into the scene of London’s undiscovered musicians.
scrabbling to find warm-up/rehearsal time – even though I’m not even playing every week, I struggle to get and stay prepared. Still not sure how this new lifestyle fits together.
giving my first impromptu guitar “lesson”.
making friends and loving how music brings people together.
I need to cut out or simplify some stuff so that I can focus on what’s important – I have so much work to do. But every day I believe in my talent and my vocation a little more.
It swallows you whole, once you start doing something you’re passionate about.
