Last year, I wrote about my year in music “by the numbers.” I don’t have anything new to add to that post. 2014 went largely the same way. However, it’s great to remind myself of this:
It’s always been easy to confuse “who cares about my music” with “who cares about me” and take a lack of response personally. But as I drove home from an open mic a couple of weeks ago and pondered the strategy of listing my music on iTunes or trying to find a new outlet that would work better, I thought (speaking to an imaginary audience member): “I’m not doing this for you.”
I didn’t record as much in 2014 as in 2013 so it’s hard to compare the effort and numbers but it’s good that I keep something of a record of shows I play and stuff I record in order to remember the good and bad.
So hey, here’s to 2015.
