The life of a musician or an artist is filled with a lot of confusion. The path rarely is clear. In fact, the path for two artists rarely is the same. You got to make your own way. We only see glimpses of overnight success, which in truth often took years to get to. Every one of us has our own path, and we get there when we are ready. But along the way, we need people. We need friends, both in the arts and outside of it. For many of us, it is a very lonely road. But it does not need to be that. Still, too many artists see their fellow artists as competition. But the truth is, together we are stronger.
