I recently got into local music in my home state and I fell in love immediately. The talent that comes out of small, upcoming bands is amazing and makes me speechless half the time. I would love to be somewhere in the music world; whether it’s backstage or even managing a band. A lot of the mainstream music is, well… mainstream. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of it is great, but most lack the depth that comes from emerging bands. I would have to start locally of course, working for some of the promotion companies out here and getting to know the locals and what their goals are. Great music is hiding in own backyards.
