Nashville So Far
as most of you may know, i relocated to nashville at the beginning of the summer, and have had a wonderful first three months here. someone was explaining to me the difference between a place with a music scene, and a place with a music industry. nashville is definitely the latter, and being here is extremely refreshing.
“isn’t there so much more competition there, nate?” well i’m glad you asked. that’s one way to look at it, but the “competition” here is extremely collaborative and helpful to one another, and to me. my first month here i was asked to be on the respective bills of two of my friends’ shows at great venues like 12th & Porter! every time i go out (nashville has a great nightlife!), i’m hanging out with similarly-inspired industry folk and being constantly encouraged and inspired from every direction. another surprisingly wonderful thing is to consider the other voices on any given show bill better than my own! iron sharpens iron.
my short term goals are to network like crazy, start playing more shows as i gain a following here, get youtubesdays going again after having bought some better gear (huzzah!) and some new inspiration for songs to cover, and record some of the new music i’ve been writing. i even had a great cowriting session (my first from concept) with an awesome producer/writer/dude, josh bronleewe. oh and by the way, i’m teaching myself to tinkle the ivories. and no, that’s not a euphemism for housetraining. more to come from all of that, but thanks for being patient while i got settled. until then, thanks for continuing to support me, i can feel it all the way over here!
