Here’s one of the challenges of having any degree of success as an artist:
If you repeat the thing that was successful some of your audience will lose interest because they see you as predictable and boring.
If you do something different some of your audience will lose interest because you are not doing the thing that was previously successful.
I believe there’s only one way forward.
We must carry on with our work in a spirit of love, excellence, authenticity and integrity. We must keep growing as artists and human beings.
Releasing a work of art is an act of faith (perhaps I should say that it is an act of obedience). Our job is to send it out and see what kind of lightning returns to us.
