I had a conversation with a very wise person this morning. We were discussing how life is in a constant cycle of change. Not that this concept was a revelation to me but it made me think about context and how as people, musicians, artists and all music professionals we sometimes long for a time when everything seemed to make sense. This wise person told me that without change, we would be complacent and not challenge ourselves to move to the next place, open the next chapter, walk through the next door, take risks or evolve as a person, a songwriter, a performer etc. In all the reading I do regarding the music business, it seems everyone is looking for where the business paradigm will finally land. My answer to this infinite question is that it will never land. Just when it all might seem to make sense again, change will rear it's beautiful head.
