Hey Ladies: Being A Woman Musican Today

An interesting music interview I found today on NPR:

We asked hundreds of women working as musicians today to tell us what it's like right now: the good, the bad and the same as it ever was. Read their responses, find new music and join the discussion.
Hey Ladies

Miranda Lee Richards:
"I have received so much advice, but some of the best advice had to do with learning to do what was right for me. It's important to know somethings about the business so you can make educated decisions, but even then, you will have to be in touch with yourself to know when a situation feels right, when someone has your best interest at heart, or when an opportunity feels exciting or just the opposite. Very rarely do you feel good about things that turn out bad. I have felt cautious about things that ended up turning out great, but I've never felt bad about something that turned out good, does that make sense?"

After a lovely homemade breakfast of pancakes and coffee with Laura Graham this morning, talking dreams, talking film making and music making, I began seriously thinking about the lifestyle and decision makings and potential of the creative artistic woman. I think I wanna make music...Stumbling across this little vignette today of all days was very interesting.

Happy August Leos,

The Element of Freedom

Alicia Keys begins her album, "The Element of Freedom" with a reading of one of the strongest and most prevalent quotes ever by Anaïs Nin:

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
