Play with something to say, not something to prove

I saw this on the projector at the Blues Jam at Club Fox in Redwood City last night. I couldn’t agree more with this statement. So many musicians define their self-worth by their “status” amongst the music community. Not only is this a hollow way to live, but it’s not what music is about. Music is about sharing a story, through lyrics and melody. Great art is not driven by ego, but by a story that needs to be told.

Thank you for hearing my stories. I hope you find something in them to lighten your lives.

More stories to come!

Peace and Love,
Heather Scarlett
