Thank you! As far as making it as an artist—it depends a lot on how you define ‘making it’. I mean, really, you can do anything you set your mind to do, but in the music industry, people often set their minds to do things they might later find out they don’t actually want to do. NYC is a vibrant city filled with artists and I think it always will be. With that said, I’m planning on moving out—looks like to Austin. But that’s for a lot of reasons—not just the whole ‘being an artist in NYC’ thing. But nothing is impossible. Live where you want to live and work hard to do what you want to do there.
Hey there! It’s really nice to hear from you and to know that someone who bought Devola cds back in the day is still checking out my stuff. Thank you. My writing…these days, my writing isn’t so spontaneous…it’s more like…”damn, it’s Sunday. I need to write a song for tomorrow”. :) Actually though, most of my music is inspired by my poetry (www.elizabethsewardpoetry.wordpress.com). I do need to step away to write the poems. I have worked on fiction and short stories—none of which are published. Poetry is my writing passion, but I also do travel writing professionally. I do it for a travel website I own, www.theantitourist.com, and sometimes for National Geographic too, www.intelligenttravelblog.com, as well as other misc. websites and magazines. It’s a good way for me to document what I’m seeing as I travel. Anyway, if there’s anything else I can answer for you, by all means, ask.
It’s less than $4. Or you can just buy your favorite song. And once you do, I’ll buy…an apple. And continue to feed myself.
