Today Josh Grider releases his new album Luck & Desire.
It’s a fitting title for just about anything in the music business. Want something to work? Okay– here’s how you make it work: first, you work your ass off and become the absolute best that you can be– you have to want it– that’s the desire part. Second, you pray for a lucky break.
You can’t make it to the top without the first, and you can’t make it without the second one, either. That’s just the way it goes.
Josh has done his part regarding the first condition. I don’t have to be his friend to know that he wants to get his music out there to as many people as he possibly can. I don’t have to be his friend to know that he thinks the best way to accomplish that is to make his music as undeniably good as he possibly can. I can tell all of that just by listening.
I do have to be his friend to know that he works as hard as anyone making music today. You don’t have to be his friend to know that, because I just told you.
It’s the second part of the condition– that damned LUCK. The wild, untamed, unpredictable part of all of this… that’s the thing that’ll drive you crazy.
Desire to become fluent in French? I bet you can figure out how to absolutely do that if you want to.
Desire to gain 20 pounds of lean muscle? I bet you can figure out how to absolutely do that, too.
Desire to succeed and grow in the music business? I wish you all the luck in the world, because you’re going to need it.
