This week I got one of those emails that you really don’t like getting – but they are a reality in the life of a musician. Well, maybe Peter Gabriel doesn’t get them but I’m not him. Essentially the message is, “we love your music but you’re not drawing enough so we’re ending the regular gig.” Not the first time I’ve gotten one, likely won’t be the last. But after 700+ gigs since 2010, it does give me an opportunity to step back and think about, “what next?” The most recent iterations of nostatic had quite a good run and we made some great music. Now time to retool a bit and think about what I really want to be spending my musical energy on these days. Have a couple of low-key things percolating, we’ll see where it all goes. Life is an experiment…
