Upon the days of the music journey for us artists, it gets hard, you get sick of been your own boss, you spend hours in songs, days, weeks & months. You put your all in and stump up to your local boozer only to be valued as an average joe.
Upon my beautiful journey, I met my good friend Alam, by which time i was sick, sick of not gigging, sick of been the odd one out. I wanted gigs just to have gigs, so I wouldn’t get nervous as hell next time I performed.
I did a few shows with Alam, we achieved greatly together, he always said to me don’t worry about not having shows you can do songs and still achieve at home, of course, I was still wrapped up in I want more gigs mode.
(There we are at Hull City Hall)
Years later, The advice that I took from Alam came to fruition. Now I look forward to the time I have gigging. But in the meantime I can build an artillery of new songs & stuff to do live.
So do not worry if you don’t have gigs, trust me, your not failing. Take that from experience, they’ll come. Spend time on making your sound right. I probably have more chance of getting gigs now more than I ever had. but right now.. You bet, I’m building up at home.
