Hey friends, in my theoretical spare time, I’m working on writing a piece about romantic relationships with musicians and my relationship with music in relation to people I date. I’d really like to pitch this story to a variety of places and publish it in a forum outside of my blog. I see this as an on-going project for this spring, not just a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am blog post.
I have a lot of thoughts about what I want to say and points I want to make from my personal experience, but I’d love to have conversations with any friends who have dated/been married to a touring musician, have any relevant stories about relationships with touring musicians, or have themselves been a touring musician dating someone who is not touring with them. Also interesting are stories from people who have been in bands with a significant other.
Anyway, if you have a story that you’d be willing to share with me, or something you need to get off your chest, please email me ejanneylockman at gmail dot com. I’ve written stories about highly personal things before and I promise that I will respect and protect your anonymity as I write.
