There’s been a flurry of activity recently. I’m back in the studio writing a lot of music for some upcoming projects.
Which leads me to a confession: the hard work of being an artist is the continual need for energy. There are so many distractions to overcome: business, phone calls, etc. Retaining focus on creating art and maintaining sufficient energy – that’s the challenge.
I’m not really complaining. It’s maybe now I finally realize what all those people meant when they said “You want to be a musician? That’s a hard life.”
The hard part isn’t practicing, touring or performing. It’s managing your life amongst all the chaos.
