So we're just over 12 months along since the pandemic was declared and it's been a tough year for everyone - especially those who work in the Arts.
For me, not only did all my gigs, shows, choruses, concerts, music networks come to a grinding halt in March last year, so did my social networks, incomes, and creativity! My inspiration, imagination, and artistic vision walked out in protest. I was feeling pretty low until I discovered that I was in an enormous lifeboat with a world of artists - and Arts-related workers - all experiencing the same thing.
Fortunately, one of the Music Industry platforms I belong to - an International group which supports independent artists -is proactive in its approach. Eventually it flicked a switch which resonated with me and I took up their "Songwriters Challenge" in March this year.
It worked. I blocked the "Block" and now have a heap of new material I'm working on to produce another album mid year. No CD's though anymore. This album - still under wraps - is going to be produced on USB for easy download to your devices.
I'll be happy to share more about the new music in the next month or so ...stay tuned. And if you haven't joined me yet on Facebook, I encourage you to send a friend request ...it's where I'm most active with news, updates, and events. #note tho'...I tend only to 'friend' people that I know, or have met. So if we haven't met yet, leave a message with your request and here's your password to let me know you're a genuine friend: Mozmate
