You can’t make things happen all at once. You can, however, work hard and smart. Build your dream one brick at a time.
I have been working on getting my own band together for a while and it has been quite challenging. The hardest part for me so far has been getting other musicians involved.
Upon reflection my mindset as a musician for most of my life has been to be part of a band. Either as a sideman in somebody else’s group or playing a singular role in my own.
It seems that after almost a year of trying to get something going that my best bet is to do as much as I can on my own to get my music written, produced and released and not wait to find other people.
That seems like a huge mountain to climb artistically and in practical terms to me. Others like Prince, Dave Grohl, Lenny Kravitz, etc. have done it so it is possible.
I guess I just have to build this structure one brick at a time and have faith that I can do it.
