In a zone
The musician's world of today is in great turmoil. The old ways no longer work - and the new ways are still in flux. Making music the best you can and to your own taste is the best option a musician has. Things will settle out soon.
It looks promising.
The way the world at large has less and less interest or appreciation for music, in general - but I see it as my job, to change that.
Not much. I am very supportive of other working musicians and help out in any way I can when we cross paths in the music world (usually at festivals, but also at concert venues) - by sharing booking contacts, and making recommendations, references - and by many other ways.
Willingness to work, work, work really hard to get there. You have to make your way yourself. You cannot wait for some fairy Godmother music industry mogul "discover you" and make you a star.
