As a performer, I so appreciate you and your band! What is your best advice for getting yourself out there? Something I start to feel a little discouraged, and having studied music and voice in college, I afraid to let it all slip away! My band and I play around town, but nothing is taking off!! HELP!

Ps, I love you guys. Cant wait to see you in NYC!

Hey Sarah! It's a tough nut to crack - you can't fail if you never quit! Try to surround yourself with people who are better than you so you learn from everything they can offer you. That and try to connect with bands that are a couple rungs higher on the ladder than you - not only to help get your name out of there, but for the chance to observe what they're doing off and offstage and how. I've bought a lot of coffees to people in bands for a chance to get a 15 minute conversation of tips on touring and connecting. Good luck!
