What is Artist Session?
*Guidance for musicians and songwriters who want to be artists and for artists who want to thrive.
*One on one coaching focused on your needs, covering: songwriting, touring/booking, performance technique, business planning, managing finances, recording, branding and media presence, honest and professional critique.
*A holistic approach to sharpening artist’s survival skills that run from goal setting to understanding your discipline to maintaining some sense of sanity.
Who is this for?
You play music, you perform, solo or with a band, you write songs and you take yourself seriously. If you want to take this to the next level, past friends and family or past your comfort zone, then we most likely have something to talk about. This is less about the steps to stardom from an industry point of view and more about thriving as an artist from an artist point of view.
Why would I need this?
All of this is difficult to figure out on your own, but it’s not impossible. You will need help: An inner circle, a manager, a teacher, an enabler, a therapist, an honest critic. Having a plan helps, taking stock in your skills is essential, reflecting on your needs and limitations, conceptualizing and sculpting your brand, along with harnessing your energy, your dreams and enthusiasm to express yourself is key to a successful journey.

How do we do this?
Everyone’s needs are unique but we share a lot of the same challenges. We start with a phone/Zoom consult: a get to know each other session. There is no charge for this initial consult. We will discuss what you are trying to accomplish and your means for getting there. This may be about connecting you with the right resources, might be about the songwriting process and critique, might be about developing a business plan, or just being a sounding board. Where we go from the initial consult is about building a path for you and how much help you need from me to stay on that path.
