If you're out looking for holiday shopping deals next Saturday 11/30, you can catch me doing a performance at The Wolfchase Galleria, at 3:00 pm. Look for me in the Dillard's wing. Some guy in a red suit's already got dibs on center court.
It's funny how the actual path to a goal can be quite different than the one you mapped out. I guess it's the old best laid plans of mice and men scenario. Anyway, I find myself doing something I never thought I'd do, a few track shows. I definitely prefer the look, sound, and feel of a live band, but right now I have to get performing again. So tracks it is.
Okay, so my new CDs are supposed to be arriving today. At last check, they were put on the delivery truck this morning at around 6:00 this morning. I can hardly wait! Once they're here, I've got to hurry off to FedEx to make sure the first orders are available on cdbaby.com tomorrow. Here's to anticipation and optimism.
Management contract negotiations are underway. I'm not sure just how far apart the two sides are, but I can already see fireworks. Someone once said that it's only a good negotiation when both sides walk away unhappy. I'm not sure about the accuracy of that statement, but I can't wait for the lawyers to complete the process. We've got major work to do in 2012.
Today I started receiving contracts for a management and record deal. While both are impressive achievements, I find myself being more cautious than excited. Am I excited? Of course! However, I also understand that this is a business. I'm 45, not 15. I know that negotiations are part of this process. As long as both sides come away with "bruises", it's all good. While I am so ready for the next step and chapter in my career, I can't just jump because an opportunity presents itself. So, deal or no deal? That is the question. Only time will tell...
