David Huckfelt, independent musician, at home with his partner, Shannon McWalters, Landscape Architect, their newborn son Billy Niobrara, and Texas the dog.
"My job is gone. Musicians spend their lives in one of the most fragile and uncertain professions; on a good day, in a good year, you almost never know where your next payday is coming from. In Covid Times, what that means is we were basically the first business to go away, and we'll be the last to return.
Without an audience, there is no live music. We dive into other projects, new songs, recording, writing, Zoom concerts & virtual benefits - but the corporate/tech take-over of the record business means there is almost no other means to make income outside of live music. People love & need music more than ever, and yet most musicians can't pay their rent."
Editor's note: David Huckfelt has a new album coming out in fall 2020. It's called "Room Enough, Time Enough". It's available for pre-order on vinyl & CD:
