  1. The workshop mentioned above seems to be an interesting concept, regarding the online tag. It seems that when I read “back” in history, every artist who didn’t just get the world handed to them through the fluke of meeting “the right person” spent their days trying to brand themselves. One person who immediately comes to mind is Dylan Thomas, who spent a good part of his life on the road, performing his poetry and prose through public readings, which was an attempt a “branding himself” pre-internet; afterwards he was sure to go to a local bar, where he would become a barstool brander. I review small music festivals, and I encounter countless Dylan Thomas’s in the festival circuit musicians I meet.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Artist have always “branded” themselves — becoming known for their authentic and unique selves. Today, many artists choose to have more business and marketing skills in order to increase their visibility, sales of their works, and network for new opportunities. Having a website like yours is just one tool available. If you are interested in joining the discussion to help fellow artists to Know, Be, and Express themselves, RSVP for the Sept 12 event.

      Thanks – and keep looking up,
