Sometimes you’re working away, touring, doing radio interviews and everything is great!
Then there are a few rare instances when you feel like you’re working away and your efforts aren’t going anywhere. We all have those moments. Whether you’re visiting a radio announcer, a mom, an interior designer, a hairstylist, a doctor, or any other career or profession. Hopefully the moments where you feel like things aren’t working only account for 1% of the time. Truthfully though, it doesn’t matter how infrequently it happens. It still doesn’t feel great.
But then, out of the blue, something meaningful and amazing happens. It rejuvenates you and reminds you how much you love what you’re doing.
That’s exactly what happened during this interview with John MacDonald on Hunters Bay Radio. It was a real conversation about music, making music, where it comes from, and what it means to make the music that becomes the soundtrack to life. I love almost every interview, but some of them dig a little deeper and make me think about why I love making music, and that always reminds me why I do it.
I do it because I want to help other people by giving them the songs that they can identify with, that describe their feelings, and put those feelings into words.
I love talking about all the buzz worthy parts of the music business. It’s fun to talk about traveling, style, and all the perks. However, it’s also so exhilarating to talk about all the deep parts of music. That’s what makes it so special! To talk about the history of music, the influences we all have. It all comes together in a unique expression to give us the music we have today! If you’d like to see the whole interview you can watch it here.
