Starting to look like real musician (thank you @nickilott )
From Open mic’ing that turned into free gigs that turned into gigs with free drinks/food. Expenses turned into fee offers, you’re improving all the time, word spreads, the gigs grow in numbers and size, people start to turn up specifically to see you play. Then people start singing your own songs back to you. Then eventually you just about made/save enough to record your first song with an amazing producer.
It was 5yrs a go I picked up the guitar again and now at the cusp of releasing my first single on all major platforms and holding my first headline gig and people are actually buying tickets....Five years ago I wouldn’t have thought it would be possible. I am SO unbelievably humbled I’m full to bursting. Putting yourself out on the line is pretty scary. I have often said I have no aspirations to be a celebrity but to have enough people come to my gigs so that I can keep gigging, and buy my music enough so I can carry on recording, and to be able to make enough with which to support my family, then this is the dream. Thank you so much to everyone who has ever come to see me play so far.
For my Woodbridge single launch party on the 26.4.19 (with surprise special guests)the details are as follows and just £5 (+booking fee) and there will be a cheap bar too.
