Love your work, love your live shows. My question is; Is it feasible to make it as a strictly recording artist and NOT a performing artist given the current state of the industry? By "make it" I mean move enough units to get minor label backing.
personally, i don't think so. there are always going to be exceptions to every rule and people who make it in different ways, but for the most part, live performance is a large part of an artist's revenue stream. and it's those live performances that make fans want to buy albums and products associated with the artist. if an artist is only a recording artist, there's potential, but it's going to be limited by the lack of live performances. not to be too discouraging though - there's always exceptions and people who redefine both how it's done and what it means to 'make it'
Love your story about how you "transitioned" from your jazz roots. Your foundation is solid and it shows! No question really :) - RegisMark de Clive-Lowe responded on 07/25/2013 Next question
How many years did you take to master the piano? And who would you say inspires you?
And what do you think about South african house music?
