    My OTHER Blog… (well, one of them;) 


    Check out my new Music Biz blog Music Biz Snips (Notes to self…from a DIY Singer/Songwriter) http://www.musicbizsnips.wordpress.com (like biz-ness…biz-snips, get it?)! As the subtitle might suggest, I started this blog for myself, in order to keep track of and categorize things I’m learning as I go. However, I realized that fellow musicians might find it useful, and music lovers (particularly those of you who love MY music;) ) might find the process interesting.

    SO, not only did I make it public, but I definitely encourage and appreciate comments, especially insight from fellow musicians who’ve been there/done that and those who are still pretty much at the bottom with me! I love to learn from others, and there is something about sharing mutual struggles that makes one feel not quite so alone in this dog-eat-dog world 🙂

    Also follow me on twitter @musicbizsnips (I’ll follow you back!) and facebook http://on.fb.me/edw7dl 🙂

    Top goal this week: to get “The Unrefined” EP sent to be replicated (and perhaps add “Take Your Time (Live Demo)” before doing so?) !!! 🙂

    Tags: Booking, DIY Ups & Downs,   

    Oy, booking yourself is no simple task! I’m still amazed when a venue says “yes, we’d love to have you play!” Its pretty hit or miss… 🙂 But in case you’re wondering, my focus right now is on booking festivals, then on booking smaller venues around whichever festivals take me!
