American Aftermath talk about the Bee and Flower 2LP release!
Hey gang! We are once again needing to move some units to make room for incoming items at the Inherent Recs HQ so we are reinstating the 3LPs for $33 1/3 for a limited time. Pick your item and vinyl color option and tell which you’re after during checkout. Scratch that budget itch!! https://squareup.com/market/inherent-records
Trials, tribulations and the things I learned from becoming a solo musician.
Every band has its share of problems. Often enough, one of the band members gets cranky and storms out of practice. These days it might be followed by a social media post airing out all of the dirty laundry or at minimum an under handed and vague stab at a fellow chaffed band mate. Solo musicians never have to deal with those pesky band related problems though. Or do they?
Here are a list of things that I quickly realized occurred once I decided to venture into the performing solo musician territory aka My solo musician experiences.
When it’s just me alone in a room I realize the following are currently reality.
I work with a slacker.
My band mate never seems to perform my ideas correctly no matter how many times I try to explain it.
When it comes time for additional feedback, the brainstorming sessions provided generally make me unhappy.
They never understand my total vision.
Sometimes I feel like I’m alone in this effort!
No one else ever has to do the interviews. They call on me every time.
No one else EVER offers to drive. To a local show or driving on tour, seems like I’m the only one that gets stuck driving. Plus, they suck at road games.
No one ever helps carry gear. I just sit at the practice space but they never show up. Eventually I just load it myself.
There are so many other things about this solo band that drive me crazy but this is a good place to stop for now. After all, I wouldn’t want the rest of the band to have a temper tantrum over my open expression of opinions and feelings…
