As an artist, telling your story allows fans to identify with you on a more human level. Folks are more likely to spread the word about your art when they have something interesting to say about where it came from. We as artist, need to provide that content."

Getting Out of Town

In this episode my good friend Jamie Salvatore explains the benefits about getting out of town. I also include two ways to help book out of town gigs. The first is by doing a dry run in the city you are looking to play in. This can be easily accomplished by networking with other musicians at open-mics. The second is by cold-calling venues. Quotes : " The real voyage of discovery consist not in seeing new landscapes but inn having new eyes." - Marcel Proust
