Blog-Vember #7 Five Reasons to Find Your Tribe
We have decided to try something that we haven’t done in years. We are looking outside of ourselves to choose our next focus, musically. We are used to that idea of pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps and of “manning up” and standing squarely on our own two—four?—feet. However, the older we get, we are beginning to realize that sometimes it takes others to advance our own dreams. Finding people who share your artistic philosophy is the key. Having said all that, here are the 5 main reasons to seek others’ help:
1. You can’t do it alone. You need a community of people who are almost as passionate about what you do as you are. It is those folks who will sound the alarm, because they want others to know about this great thing that they have found.
2. Genuine feedback is important. Because we want to showcase the music that helps you, the fan, live a better life, we need to know which of our songs do that for you. By allowing you to tell us directly, we don’t have to guess and we can give you more of what you enjoy about us.
3. Objective ears. We love all of our songs—yes, all 15 on this album—and can’t choose objectively which ones should be showcased next (and then, next and then, next). With your help, we don’t have to choose which of our musical children will be put in front of all others; we can rest assured that someone who is not as close to the work as we are will give us objective opinions.
