I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music. Billy Joel
For those of you who have been following my blog I have started a new one that deals solely with my career as a musician. I started my Buddha blog 9 months ago as a personal journey and I have loved it and will continue to keep it up. This new blog at EZ Street Blog is a journal that deals only with music. I have never been more focused on my career as a musician than now and I thought it would be interesting to see where my journey takes me a year from now. So, for those of you out there that have been following me I hope you will join me on my journey down the long and winging road of music and let me tell you what a strange trip it has already been! I think this blog would also be of interest to those out there that are interested in a career as a professional musician in their local area. I have no delusions of grandeur, never have. I am just a simple woman that happens to have a career as a performing artist and never have wanted the big lights and fast money. All I ever wanted to do was sing.
Music is what feelings sound like. ~Author Unknown
Musicians are a special breed. Every city in every state has a community of musicians floating around. We are a group of individuals, guitar players, vocalists, bass players, drummers, etc; that are born with an innate sense of music that fills our souls up so much that we want to share it with the people around us. To us music is every sense we know, sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Music is a very empowering thing. If you think about it, music is a universal language that should be shared by all. Some may not be the best players or bands in the world, but they have a deep love for the music that regardless of their skill level should be appreciated. There are those out there who would knock musicians down for not being “good” enough, “original” enough, or a plethora of other reasons. Don’t be so negative, every musician out there has something to give, a gift for you, listen to it and enjoy it, don’t knock it. I speak not of the musicians who are out there on the big stages making the big bucks. The musicians of which I speak are the little guys, the guys and girls next door, the ones standing on that stage in that small or big town pouring out their naked souls to the universe. Whether the song is a cover or an original you can bet that the people standing on the stage put their hearts into it. Show them some love, they really appreciate it!
