Dear Indie Girl,
I had a wonderfully successful weekend! It was further confirmation that I’m on the right path. Don’t you love when that happens?!
This weekend I played two smallish Michigan churches and I was so amazed at the response! People were open and eager to hear about my work with Women At Risk raising awareness about human trafficking. They were attentive, they lined up at the merch table afterward to sign the email list, buy a CD and/or talk to me. I made connections with people to possibly play other gigs. And while these things alone would make it a good night, and money is not the most important thing in life… I got paid to do what I love. I want to stress that the love of money does not drive what I do (if it did I’d have quit a long time ago), but without getting paid gigs we can’t fund future projects and will be forced to continually beg you, our audience for money to record and print new CDs which is something I really don’t want to do forever.
I just wanted you to know, I’m feel encouraged, and I hope to see you at a show soon!
