Let me start by saying you're incredible. I've used your music to get through a variety of difficult and interesting times in my life and I simply can't stop recommending you to people. My question is, am I on the right track of making music? I pour my self into it and only try my best but I constantly find my self doubting - well - my self. I want to get my music more out there but I'm not sure how to go about doing it I suppose. All I want to do is learn and create. I've finally found my calling but at only 9 "followers" I feel like all my creations fall on deaf ears. I just don't know how to expand.

- I just came from hyperspace and felt the overwhelming urge to message you, am I crazy?
Thank you for being amazing.

You just have to keep doing it and doing it. Good art wants to get discovered.

I started doing this when I was 15 and I was 35 when my first record came out.

Given enough time grass will grow through asphalt.

Learning to identify and silence your internal heckler is an important skill for an artist to master. Remember Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys who used to sit in the balcony on The Muppet Show dissing every sketch? I had them living in my head until I was 34. Shutting them up was essential to my progress.
