Forever Came Calling: Why the Unsigned Future is Still Bright

The DIY, unsigned grind is fierce. As an artist in this world, you’re the visionary, the creator. You’re the booking agent. You’re the publicist. You’re the accountant, merch guy, gear tech, driver. You play all the roles, and then some, as a liaison to other bands either in the scene or swinging through on tour.

Alright, you’ve read the Buzzfeed style title and have thus been sucked in by my ruse. You’re here, why not stay for a bit, I’ve only been given 500 words so you won’t waste too much time. The most important thing I’ve learned is actually something I came to terms with far too late in my ‘career’ and as such I bring it to you, here, hopefully early doors, so you can interact with it in any way you see fit. Perhaps a lot of it will sound like the…

MUSIC CITIES: Orlando

They call Orlando “The City Beautiful” and that phrase doesn’t stop short of the music scene. I couldn’t think of a better place for our band to call home. Orlando has been so good to us. The melting pot of talent, local support, and the overall sense of community has helped shaped our band in ways that we could never imagine.
