I had to learn a great deal about computers and social media to make the band work online. Now a days I use those skills to promote other brands, and help them optimize their SEO.
To be honest, I think I am out of touch with the scene these days. I have had my nose to the grindstone for the past few years concentrating on my own thing. I’m excited to be watching this next batch of musicians who play their own music.
We are working on a studio project, and planning next years tours.
