'7 Secrets' Workshop Comes to Chicago Oct 21

Some things are worth getting tired over, especially when it comes to interacting with fans and people who are passionate about the same things you are.

I may be exhausted, but the past week was exhilarating, with workshops in Nashville, TN, and Asheville, NC -- and a pleasure stop in Myrtle Beach, SC, in between.

If you reside a bit further north, I'll be bringing the "7 Secrets to Low-Cost Music Promotion" workshop to Chicago, IL, on Sunday, Oct. 21, for an afternoon event. Check out this page for details.

Before moving on to upcoming events, I want to thank David Hooper, Keith Mohr, Julie Blake, and Doak Turner for being my surprise guest speakers in Nashville. They each did a fantastic job adding valuable music career advice. I wish I had had more time for them all. (As one attendee remarked, "this could have been an all-day event.")

A big thanks to friends RyLee Madison and Clay Krasner, who allowed Pooki and I to stay at the Madison Writing Room. (If you need a great place to sleep and write in Nashville, check out their awesome place here.)

Christine Kane is a smart and inspiring indie artist, and it was a joy to co-present with her in Asheville. Every musician should read her blog to get her unique perspective on life and creativity. A big thanks also to Lyna Farkas, an Asheville decorative painter and radio show co-host who proved to be an invaluable friend and supporter there.

Now I'm looking forward to many more live events:

PLAY:stl Music Festival & Conference
Sept. 21-22, St. Louis, MO

TAXI Road Rally
Nov. 8-11, Los Angeles, CA

Self-Employment in the Arts Conference
Feb. 29 to Mar. 1, 2008, Lisle, IL

CIA Summit
March 29-30, 2008, Franklin, TN

And a very cool first-annual indie music career bootcamp I will launch in St. Louis the third weekend in June 2008. Stay tuned.

Check out my live events page for the latest details on my speaking schedule. Hope to see you on the road soon!


P.S. Remember, I'll be in Chicago next month. If you'll be in the area, or know someone who will, send them to this page.
