Deke Sharon's recent blogs have sparked a lot of interest and conversation on the topics of professional musicians and groups in our community, how and why the work matters (and when it doesn't), and what it takes to be successful in this economy and climate. The result is a wealth of information that, thanks to Vocal Blog's Florian Städtler, is now compliled here in one place. Enjoy, learn, contribute, and please join and continue the conversation!
