Expect Musical Success not 9 to 5 Regrets at Echo Factory
Imagine, after many years of 9 to 5 drudgery, you recollect a time when a musical career was your dream. Wistfully, you muse that if you’d really put your mind to it, you could have been a rising star not clocking up miles in your company car.
Many work anniversaries go by and, gazing at your longservice carriage clock, you fondle your moth-eaten t-shirt emblazoned with the peeling logo from your old band. You think back to the days when you could play guitar behind your head à la Hendrix. Now you’d need a warm bath and a vat of Deep Heat if you even thought about “moving like Jagger.”
Perhaps you’re still harbouring a badly produced EP from “when I could have made it big” or stroking a natty poster from one of your few gigs at a local working men’s club. With a sigh of regret, you bundle it all back in the attic – along with the “what ifs” and “maybes.” If you have a burning ambition to be a successful performer or music business professional, it’s never too late to make it happen. Whether you’re a school leaver or fancy a career change, don’t leave it until you’re wondering what might have been.
