A few years ago I had to accept the fact that due to my mothers health, I would have to put my professional aspirations on hold for the time being since it would be difficult to venture too far away for any length of time. I’ve also had to become a bit pickier then I have a right to be as far as the venues I perform in are concerned since after all, what’s the point of going to work if the cost of a sitter is going to be more than I earn? Fortunately, the times they are a changing.
I am now a bona fide, online streaming musician/singer songwriter. Some of you may remember that I tried this a few years ago but due to the backwardness and monopoly of my Internet service provider, I was only able to acquire DialUp speed through my DSL modem but not any more. I’m screaming now.
Not only do I have a decent Internet connection but thanks to the help and ideas of several good friends and hours and hours of reading boring geeky stuff I’ve been able to convertone of the rooms in my eternal home remodel/construction project into a pretty nice replica of a pro soundstage with state of the art lighting as well.
I would have gotten started a little sooner but good help is hard to find…well, keep anyway. Fortunately though, thanks to my stubborn spirit of independence, I was able to rig up a foot controller to make my transitions as well as a few other technical tricks.
