AcousticLiving.com is my place to share with you, all of my philosophies, tips, and strategies that have helped on my personal path to making a living as a folk musician.

My hope is that sharing this info here can help you in your own personal journey toward a similar destination.

It took me about fifteen years to refine my lifestyle and my business perspective into a cohesive and financially stable system that works for me.

Here at the Acoustic Living blog, I’m working to share what I see as the basic truths of that experience.

Whether you’re just starting off in your career or if you’ve been at it for a while and find yourself frustrated with the lack of success and fulfillment therein, I wish you the best of luck and I sincerely hope this resource can help.

If I can play any part in keeping you from wasting as many years as I did  shooting in the dark and running in circles…then my work here will have been worth it!

I’m regularly posting blog articles and podcast episodes to this site, but it’s not just my voice you’ll be hearing. I also share links to other related resources both on and offline.

I believe that, as musicians, each and every one of us has something unique and viable to offer the world. I also believe that professionally-minded musicians can turn those unique offerings into income by offering services that help others. Everybody wins!

The articles and interviews at Acoustic Living have helped quite a few folks on their journey from starving artistry to financial security.
