I thought some might be interested.
Not my kind of music, (a Little Folksy for me) but I admired her drive and ability to evolve.
I met Helen while she was hosting a "song circle". You sit in a circle and play your originals.
She was always dedicated and generous with her time doing lots of benefits.
Her husband does I.T.,apparently doing well, and is happy to support both while she does her music for however long it might take. She works hard at it. Like a business.
She is now taking off with her music. Almost entirely self produced and marketed.
This blog show her setup and processes.http://helenaustin.wordpress.com/
