Connecting with your audience

Musical gifts are not meant to be kept to ourselves, which means at some point you’re going to have to deal with connecting with your audience: AKA the consumers of your musical product. Disc Makers Echoes explores this topic.

There’s a lot of negativity out there about the music business and how awful things are. If you buy into it, you might believe we are all destined to be Emily Dickinsons, writing songs in our attics only to be discovered in a hundred years after our miserable, lonely demises.
