BONUS CONTENT (Follow-up Q & A with Guest)
Robonzo: If you were starting your music journey over from the beginning, what would you do differently?
Bree: I would have found a mentor much earlier. I was operating in a vacuum of misinformation, confusion and lack of direction for way too long. I truly believe if i had had a mentor or even a system to follow I could have started my career at 22 instead of 32.
Robonzo: What habits or routines have best served you throughout your music journey?
Bree: Setting goals. I do this yearly and then quarterly and I track the tasks I need to do to achieve those goals on a daily and weekly basis. Also, building exercise or at least getting out everyday into my routine. I don’t always do it but when I don’t I notice the effects.
Robonzo: What has helped you most in building community around your music and art?
Bree: Breaking down the barrier between me and my audience. At some point I constructed an invisible wall between myself on stage and my audience and was trying to be the perfect performer. Once I broke down that barrier and started sharing my humanity in an authentic way as well as meeting with them after the show and on social media and showing up as myself and not some “rock star” persona, that’s when my bookings took off.
