Personal Quotes (2)

The music business is more flexible than it used to be. Young musicians, if they are creative, have a positive sense of who they are, and have a vision, can almost map their own destiny. What that means is, not only do you have to be a very good musician, you have to have a head on your shoulders for business.
There's no insurance program for being a musician. The deeper you are as a musician,the further you can go. You have to keep up with the latest technology - music, styles. You don't just keep jumping around, but adapt to keep yourself fresh and your audience fresh.
