Charlie Weber, Punk rock dude playing folk music. est. 2013
A lot of everything. Grew up listening to classic and radio rock. In high school I got into metal and post hardcore, ska, punk, emo and folk. Recently I've been listening to mostly folk/rock and pop music. Listening to a wide variety of music helps me write more creativly taking from the full genre spectrum.
To be able to live while making music my career full time.
Start locally, change starts from within. Ripple effect and all that jazz.
Probably "3am" by Matchbox 20. Say what you want about that band but "Yourself or Someone Like You" rips.
Frank Turner, Gaslight Anthem are my top 2 contenders for favourite band. Poetry and musicianship are out of this world.
Being sad and too cheap for therapy.
It's the best. Can't really be put into words. It's like being completely comfortable but also scared shitless.
Being a musician has become a workaday job, which is cool but it makes it harder to become "big." I think show times should start earlier and end earlier. It would really help getting people to come out to shows.
First time user, not sure what to make of it, lemme get back to you on it later.
Lateness of shows, see above answer.
Yes, by going to shows, setting up shows and supporting my friends efforts.
This question is confusing, because getting heard by are large audience is a lot of dedication and twice as much luck. There are no real "qualities" that can guarantee fandom.
