How many people does it take to make a musician?

I was mulling over the number of people, both professionals or experts, non experts or even family , friends and acquaintances….. that I’ve either worked with or have had help me across the last 18 years. I thought I’d start putting down all the PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THE MUSIC JOURNEY and I added to it some people I personally have not yet worked with but I know my colleagues have. 

So here’s what I came up with…… and I realised WOWWWWW it takes a VILLAGE TO MAKE AN ARTIST 😁 and most definitely ONE SINGLE ARTIST can’t possibly know alllllll of it and that’s why we must wake up to the fact that we are a COMMUNITY (not just competition).
