At night I play shows in small clubs around Seattle, but during the day I work the front counter of a cannabis shop.
As soon as I had decided to pursue a career in music, I knew that I had to move to Seattle. I had been living in a small town, which was a great place to be a kid, but a more confining place to be a teenager. After I graduated high school I had few options in such a small community, and I knew I had to find greener pastures, so to speak. Everyone in the world knows about the music scene in Seattle, Washington. How could anyone have missed hearing about it? Some of the biggest bands of the last fifty years either come from Seattle, or hit it big because of Seattle. For a fan of music, there are few places in the world better than Seattle, where you can find live shows every single night. For a performer it’s a whole different story, because the level of competition in the Seattle music scene is serious. Just to hedge my bets I took a job with one of the local cannabis dispensaries. At night I play shows in small clubs around Seattle, but during the day I work the front counter of a cannabis shop. In a place like Seattle where the cannabis industry generates so much revenue, you can actually have a career as a budtender. My coworker Steve has been a cannabis expert for the last fifteen years, and makes a lot more money than I expected. Either with cannabis or with music, I am bound and determined to become a success story in Seattle, Washington.
