Music is my passion, plus what drives me in life.
I would care about songs to be my job, as well, but so far that hasn’t happened! Being fantastic at singing plus playing guitar has not translated into me making any currency by singing plus playing guitar. I keep chasing my dream, doing small shows plus honing my craft. My belief is that a single afternoon I will catch a break, plus the right person will hear my songs, plus then my job can particularly begin. I am not sure that playing little shows plus open mic afternoons in local bars plus cannabis dispensaries is my path to success, but everyone has to start anywhere. More than anything I am surprised by the amount of supplier the cannabis dispensaries generate. I play a lot more cannabis dispensaries than I play bars or taverns, because this is where people seem to congregate these afternoons. When I was younger, going to the bar was the best thing to do late at night, but that has been replaced by the cannabis dispensary, at least in this town. Almost every cannabis dispensary has a smokers lounge where people hang out plus get high. These smokers’ lounge rooms are where I spend most of my evenings, playing folk songs plus being enveloped by the sweet embrace of cannabis smoke. The gigs are not honestly big, or honestly long, plus don’t pay much currency, but some of the venues throw in a free bin of cannabis after the show; Usually I don’t smoke the cannabis, I sell it to my roommate to help pay my bills.
