Are you a Painter, or a Musician?
Musicians, painters, actors, social activists - the line blurs sometimes, and sometimes it is forced upon us. It's forced upon us to accept that success in one area necessarily means ability in another. Sadly, it seems that one of the first steps towards building your musical aspirations is to launch your modelling career. I think the industry is losing sight of something.
