I'm moving to Los Angeles, California to continue pursuing my career in music. Since I've made the decision, I've learned that the phrase "I'm moving to L.A." triggers a lot of people to spout their opinions on the matter (almost involuntarily). The decision is my own and I'm super happy with it. So I'll share my thought process and clarify for you. Maybe it will help someone making a hard decision right now.
Two weekends ago, I drove to Chicago from Detroit and it was one of the rare times that I only had music/podcasts on for about 1.5 hours of a 5 hour drive. It gave me a lot of time to think about the ups and downs of a music career. Sometimes, you are invited to Bahrain to have the time of your life and other times, you drive really far to play to very few people for free and get treated like garbage. Either way, you stick through it knowing that you haven't hit your highest highs and hopefully have hit your lowest lows. You make a plan and adjust it along the way.
