E102: Seeing Yourself & Making A Living Off Of Your Music W/ Kimayo



Local artists are so important to my life as an audio engineer and local musician myself. I think there is a lot that can be done to make music be a business on every level. Today I’m joined by Kimayo a NH based Folk Pop artist on the Unlable record label from our previous discussion on the show. Kimayo brings serious talk on self worth, abundance verses scarcity mind set, making a living off your original music as a local artist, getting past large life hardships and challenges, and lots more. Great conversation for mindset and music business. Go check out her music! She’s a great person and artist.

“Other people had confidence in me being a musician that I didn’t. As I had this nudge from other people I started asking if they’re so confident in my ability then why am I not?” - Kimayo

“It’s one thing to have a clear vision, to play out, to gig. It’s a different approach to treat being a musician as a business and running it as a company.” - Kimayo
