Being in college, I recently had the opportunity to grab myself a free ticket to go to a Meryl Streep lecture the other day. I had to stand in line for an hour to get it, but I had the privilege to meet two fantastic ladies in front of me who were intrigued by what I was holding: a book called the Long Tail that I must read before spring break for my Music Industry class. I told them what it was about and what we have been learning in class so far. Downloads are declining,  streaming is the go-to, touring can bring in the most money for artists these days, etc.

We all had a wonderful conversation and they were surprised I had mentioned a man called J.R Cash (Johnny Cash), let alone sing his music. They kept asking questions about what I do, what am I planning to do, and it they responded enthusiastically when they heard I was a singer. We were almost to the end of the line and we finally introduced ourselves, the two ladies were Susan and Julianna. They were so delighted about our conversation that they wanted to come hear me play sometime, I told them about my upcoming performance at a local pub, Player’s Pub of Bloomington, IN in April (check it out on my website) and they said they hope to be there.

The most important thing they said throughout the entire time was the last thing they said to me: “You are going to go far, I just know it. I haven’t even heard you sing yet, but there’s something about you that can light up a room.”

I. Was. Flattered…and stunned at the same time. It’s funny what small talk can do!

Moral of the story is: be nice to people, learn about them, make someone’s day just by small talk or just a smile. I happened to gain two supporters for it, but most importantly two friends. This goes for everyone, not just artists, because you never know whose day you are going to make next, and they just might make your day in return.

In early January of this year (2014), I had the opportunity to spend the week in Nashville with producer, Ron Oates from Jes Fine Productions. What he had in store for me was beyond my imagination.

Day 1:

The first day, I had the privilege to write with Judy Rodman, a successful country singer with a chart topper in 1986 with “Until I Met You”, she also wrote LeAnn Rimes song from the “Blue” album called, “One Way Ticket.” I could go on and on…but for more info, here’s Judy’s wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judy_Rodman

 We both had a wonderful time and we had so much fun 3 hours flew by quickly. We started by getting to know each other and Judy asked me what I would like to write about. I had no really good ideas, but she taught me a valuable lesson: look at your life in the past, present or future and write about it. So she asked me some questions like what audience I target or what audience are attracted to my music, and what messages I would like to give in my songs, and what was my life like growing up. 

I started talking about my life in high school, how I never really did fit in in my graduating class and had to find friends that were usually order than I was. I never was in the “in crowd” or “popular” and I believe it was not only my quirky personality, but also because I was torn between the music/artsy groups and between the jock/sports groups. I was playing Varsity sports the first two years of my high school career (basketball and softball) and was in choir, playing guitar, involved in the musicals, and more. I just never felt like I fit in. 

And so…we started writing a song called “A Crowd of Eagles”. It’s about finding yourself and making choices for you and not for others. I hope it inspires someone someday.

What do you think?

You know how people say, “Oh if you really want to become big, you have to sacrifice everything and make it fully your life, maybe you shouldn’t go to college and/or go back if it doesn’t work out.” Ok, so I have at least heard this a lot more than I want to but it’s true that people think this way. Sure it sounds easy to drop everything and just pursue in one thing, but if you really think about it, it’s super hard to get to back on track if something goes wrong and that dream is toast.

I hated when someone told me that. It’s like they don’t understand the advantages there are by going to school. Sure, unless you are the Olsen twins and they have been stars since practically birth and can do that, however, they did attend college…or be a Taylor Swift and try to…
