E P I P H A N Y :
I am a soundtrack artist. I USED to be a performance artist and that is a very different thing. Now I provide music for browsing local artists booths, or walking around with friends and family shopping for produce and crafts on a lovely sunny day. Kids dancing and and playing. Occasionally I am the soundtrack to dinner, drinks and engaging conversation or a few pulls on the lottery slot machines. Inspirational background music for a couple's first or hundredth date night. It is a different kind of job, less glamorous but I think equally or maybe even more important. Most musicians may feel underappreciated in this position with less applause and direct attention but I think I play an important roll. I always sell CDs, I always get wonderful compliments and I always get to talk to people who like what I do at every show.
Yes I play a soundtrack for moments we all should appreciate, as I stand their "doing my thing" it is hard to not smile and feel the humanity all around. It is palpable and enthralling. I truly do love my job, thank you for being there with me.
