“I feel a change coming / A new chapter into my life / Feel a change coming / Coming on me.”
That’s the chorus from the title track of my album, Change Coming. It’s been a major theme song for me, a reflection on my departure from the software biz and fully embracing my place as songwriter and musician.
I usually share a bit of my story at my concerts, and I always get a wonderful feeling of support from my audiences. People tell me afterward how they admire my courage, my willingness to let go of fear. I do appreciate that. I love how my songs connect with people, which means I’m doing something right. But, I also think I am not alone in the possibility to “switch it up.” Each of us has the ability to make changes for the better, including aligning our passion with our work. I sincerely hope you are listening to the voice of your passion and your dreams. You do have dreams, don’t you?
SO ANYWAY... I’ve written and recorded a bunch of songs, and released an album. I’ve been reaching out to friends and folks around the world with my music in DIY fashion. My songs are connecting with people. So far, so good. So what’s next for me?
Well, I decided to “uplevel” my efforts. I just finished a 4-month intensive music-preneur course called Fast Forward to Fame, led by Cari Cole in NYC. The course has been quite useful, and I’m continuing to work through changes in the way I handle my business, grow my team (more about that soon), how I market myself, and most importantly, how I grow and connect with my followers, my tribe.
Another way I’m embracing my vision involves connecting deeper with folks in the music industry. After quite a bit of thought and visioning, I have decided to move to the Los Angeles area. It’s a major music center, and for me it just all makes sense. (I’m also looking forward to some warmer weather.) At the end of August, I’ll be packing up and relocating to LA. Once I get settled, I’ll begin working on my next album.
To my San Francisco friends and followers: I want you to know I will be visiting SF regularly to catch up with you and share new songs and stories. Of course, I’ll keep you posted on my show and touring schedule and let you know when new songs come out.
And to the rest of ya: I’m gonna be hitting the road, coming to your town. Woo hoo! (And please send me a note on where you’d like me to perform.)
