- You have to find your tribe.
- There are so many paths to your journey and sometimes it just take you a little bit longer because of that.
- Give yourself that time and everything will fall into place. You’ll find your workshop, you’ll find your class you can take where you’ll meet other singers, and performers and then it’ll move from there.
- Being brave enough to try and stretch is the work of the artist.
- Most singers have earned their voices.
- Open mics are a great forum to get better and try new things.
- Just because the audience is polite or quiet doesn’t mean that they’re not liking it.
