BE YOURSELF by David Owens
So, be yourself. There’s no need to think, “Well, that’s what’s selling so that’s what we have to do to get noticed!” It’s selling because at some point, the powers that be said to them, “You don’t sound like anyone else.”
I have earned my living solely from performing and teaching music for the past two years without having to get a day-job! I have found that a lot of the players in college who were considered the best are having a harder time making rent than some of the more determined underdogs. Because I was not the best musician, I had to be REAL and HONEST about what I could offer a venue when booking a gig. For me, honesty has worked better than any trick out there! Hopefully, my experience will help you on your own path.
If you’re like me, part of being a musician means I’m not the best at math (I know that doesn’t hold true for all you math rockers out there!). The first year I quit my job, and when out on my own freelancing was terrifying. Making ends meet, budgeting, paying the bill. It adds up to quite a bit of calculation.
