FEM121 How A Community of Musicians Can Support & Elevate Your Career with Lindsay Katt
Lindsay Katt is a spiritual and heart centered artist who wants to create art for the sake of art. She enjoys the process just as much as the finished product and is here to tell us how she has gotten to where she is today by keeping the joy in creating.
It’s critical to be in a community of musicians who can help and support you when you are in the throes of creating music. As musicians, it’s easy to get caught up in the more rigid side of music business and the creative process can often seem like a chore. Lindsay is here to today to talk about how a community of musicians can help to rally around artists when they need support the most.
