So, this is my first post here. Still working out how this site works.
The title of this blog is slightly tongue-in-cheek. ‘Living The Dream’ is the name for what we recent graduates of music college do for a living. But this living the dream is likely to be very different from anyone else’s living the dream.
For a musician at the start of his/her career, living the dream frequently means doing as many gigs as possible, trying desperately to pay the rent and to still have enough money left over for food, staying on the computer for hours emailing everyone and applying for a million different things related to gigs or potential gigs, chasing up fees that no one wants to pay, all the while trying to find the time to practice and have a life at the same time.
Dream or Nightmare?
With that in mind, the aim of this blog is to follow my personal experiences in this crazy world, trying to forge a career in a difficult but challenging field. Where will I end up? Who knows.
