My first and maybe only private post on this page and something I would like to share with you all… I had been working hard over the last years to be part of the working music scene, establishing regular gigs with artists of all kinds of genres, generating a decent income as a musician. But all on the cost of sparetime, holidays or days off. It was great for the carreer, but tough for my body and health. After having had a hard time in 2015 with bad health conditions and a long still ongoing recovery, I would recommend to everybody:
TAKE TIMES OFF, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY, BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR RESOURCES, STAY RELAXED, TAKE A BREAK AND ENJOY LIFE! MUSIC IS MEDICINE!
