I'm going to try and avoid the 'here's how to be a self-managed artist' vibe in this article because, although those things can be hugely helpful, informative, inspiring and insightful, I don't consider myself an expert on, well, anything. I'm very aware I'm a singer, a songwriter, a musician, a human and somewhere along the line, at many forks in the road, I've chosen to dedicate my life to the pursuit of happiness, and the creating and doing of things that make my heart burst (in a good way). So at some point I realised there

Nice one,
