Singer on dark stageAs is the case with many of my blogs, this week’s was again inspired by something that I witnessed recently.  Yesterday I took it to the Facebook group, where we’ve been having quite a hearty discussion on the matter.  Wow.  Quite a hearty discuss

This week the blog is contributed by a guest who is an independent musician speaking to independent musicians.  On the episode of “Now Hear This Entertainment” released last week she referred to having written this, so it seemed fitting to provide it on our site to our audience as well.  Here is the submission from singer/songwriter Ashley E.
