It seems that the rents are getting higher and higher in our building and my bf’s bonuses at Uber are being cut. We really want to be musicians, but it’s tough to try to do it in a city like SF that is all tech. We’ve been looking into getting a conversion van and traveling across the country. It’ll take several months of planning, but well worth it to live a dream we’ve been wanting to for a long time. There is a certain freedom that comes with going out on the road and playing music. For now, we’re working on some recordings. Stay tuned for more articles!
I’ve been singing for awhile and playing violin even longer. It was great to finally set up a sound tent with my boyfriend, who is a guitarist. He met a guy whose brother owns the largest independent record label in Nashville. We’re going to send a 3-song demo to the label. It wasn’t actually too difficult to build the sound tent for recording. The only challenge was inserting grommets into three black moving blankets. We bought some PVC piping from Lowe’s and shower curtain handles for cheap. The setup took about an hour and a half. I’m hoping to take my music to the next level!
