I'm a singer/songwriter from the UK.
Do you play live?
Used to play live when I was in a band. I have less time for rehearsals now, so I just muck around on my own, writing songs and things. Never gigged solo in public, unless you count trees. Never signed, no airplay. You know how it is.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gets your music to a wider audience, though not necessarily the dealmakers.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If it meant I could travel when I wanted to and lead my own life then yes, but actually probably no.
