Rules to dating a musician
Thankfully, I have lots of skills I’ve been able to lean on to generate cash flow.I’ve done everything from marketing consultations to offering my musicianship for hire.
Sorry (but not sorry), the truth is you’ll never make it on that motivation alone.In my past experiences, re-assuring my girlfriend that not every female artist I work with is trying to sleep with me has only been half the battle won.The other half is doing things like inviting her to studio sessions and shows, so she can see that life as an indie musician is not a Gucci Mane music video.As a result, women in New York (and most other places these days) have their guard up, and for good reason – there are tons of creeps out there ruining it for the rest of us. I had one girl ask me recently, I’m a digital marketing analyst, a singer, songwriter, producer and as of last year, I’ve been documenting all of my music experiences via my blog and as a contributing writer to Digital Music News. Aside from that – I have very ambitious long term career goals, and I’m pretty busy trying to achieve them.I want to write a book, get my Ph D., land a publishing deal (with either Warner/Chappell, Sony/ATV, or Universal), win a Grammy, open a music studio in NYC, become a world class marketing consultant, and more.
I have many artist friends that are investing quite a bit of coin into their personal careers.
