I would add, music has been a constant in my life through all ups and downs, I couldn’t imagine life without it – while at the same time I simply can’t imagine doing this professionally for the rest of my life. Its keeps changing and is always asking more from artists while offering less in exchange. If this were simply a hobby i would have given up years ago, prob around 2014/2015. But I have not found a better meditation then creating music, so i continue. Part of me still dreams about fame and attention, which is a brutal toxic entity in and of itself. So I and conflicted daily about my life and how I spend it. It feels like a currency sometimes, Life. How you spend it. Do we run out? Eventually yes.
