    After several conversations with local musicians in our area and the wonderful show of support by our local community last year, the start of this new year is apropos for us as artists to shine some light into the dark room we sometimes find ourselves. Often we think we are alone, and that no one understands the joys and struggles of becoming and being a musician. This effort is to raise support and build encouragement within the artist community in our local arena. I am presenting to you all the Artists' Circle, a once a month gathering where artists can meet, jam together, improvise on stage, share stories, struggles, victories and build connections. Many artists I know find themselves secluded from the world of 9 to 5 and need a space and fellow artists with whom they can relate. My vision for this is that we feature one or two artists when we gather, have a time of improvisation and on-the-spot songwriting and music making to see what can happen and help everyone to relax. The aim is to help every struggling and successful artist find their voice, build stage presence, increase motivation and build meaningful friendships. Below I have provided a sample of what a night like this would look like: An Evening for Artists' Circle Opening – Welcome/Introduce Topic for the night (the artists will provide input for what they want to discuss) Guest artist-performs (1-2 songs) Short story- (Guest artist shares their story of becoming an artist) Discussion of Topic (options) panel format Someone with success and failures sharing their knowledge Short Presentation Jam Session- 3 groups formed from artists in the audience selected at random to perform on the spot Word of encouragement (something relevant to who we are as people not just as artists and the importance of keeping our hearts in check as we perform, write, sing and play music) Close – Invite artists to provide feedback from the audience and things to consider for the next meeting. The idea is to open it to any artist who has or is beginning to make the jump into really being a musician. This gathering is for those who want to grow, understand the work of being a musician and help those who come to be part of the circle to define success for themselves and not by the inflated, superficial standards propagated in our culture. I really did try to keep this short. Anyhow, the dates available for our first meeting are Feb 9 and Feb 23 from 7:30-9p. We want everything to be as focused as possible so the time spent is most meaningful for everyone in attendance. Let me know your thoughts and what date works better for everyone. Advertising will be by word-of-mouth so let as many of your artists know. Feel free to forward this email to those who you believe can benefit. Thanks everyone! Your fellow artist, Anakai Ney Vocalist/Songwriter Www.anakainey.com Anakai@AnakaiNey.com
