Ever Date a Musician? Halp Please!

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.

  1. hmmmm, I’ve spent quite a bit of time blogging, practicing, teaching, and jamming with a band getting ready to release our album in the spring and I have to say my girlfriend isn’t the most understanding when it comes to our efforts. I don’t like leaving my lady home while I’m out really focusing on building a following but there are situations where having your significant other standing there bored as hell really doesn’t help your motivation. As you know, practicing an instrument takes a lot of work, and is something that can’t exactly be helped by having another person glaring over your shoulder commenting on everything you do; that is what a qualified teacher is for, right?
    I love my lady but there are times when I wish she would either be gone or standing right beside me pushing harder and harder.

    Is this what you’re looking for?

  2. This is a wonderful idea!!!!!!!!!!! Wish I could contribute!!!!!!!!
