The Multipotentialite Musician (or Why Your Message is more Important than Your Skill Level)

Editor’s note: this is a guest post by Josh Taylor. A long time ago, before even I was born was the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. The crowd awaited Bob Dylan’s usual appearance as the roadies started setting up equipment. But something was wrong…wait a minute…guitar amps? Drums?!! Wasn’t this the darling of true folkies who […]

What does Your Childhood Reveal about what You Should be Doing Now?

The Eternal Battle between Art and Marketing (and Why the two Needn’t be at War)

I met a very nice Apple fanboy the other day when I went to pick up my MacBook Pro. (We exchanged business cards, so hopefully he’s reading this.) His name was Scott, and Scott was a photographer. I try to be careful when telling someone what I do for work, because it often leads to […]
