{Artists Corner} In today’s world of hurdles, how do you keep the artist inside alive and inspired?

Jacqueline_jax_inspirationQuestion: In today’s world of hurdles, how do you keep the artist inside alive and inspired?

Inspiration is a fickle mistress. When she’s with you, all is good in the world. But when she disappears it can be frustrating and even scary at times. As a working artist, I have found myself uninspired many times. But when it prevents me from getting important things done, it can be a real issue. Over the years I’ve learned that it’s very important to know myself and discover what motivates me so I can keep my creative juices flowing.

What inspires you?
I’ve learned that my inspiration is driven by several things.

ikmultimedia-teamWHO IS IK MULTIMEDIA?
Our company motto, “Musicians First,” actually has a couple of different meanings. First, we’re musicians. And we’re musicians first — engineers, software designers, business specialists, marketing and sales pros, warehouse experts, logistics managers and overall nice guys and girls second. What does that mean to you? It means we only design and create products that we would use. It’s a very simple philosophy, but there’s beauty in simplicity, and it actually guides our product development and production processes. And it works extremely well for us and for you.

ikmultimedia-team2So that’s our philosophy for operation. And we’ve been doing it longer and better than any other company in the market. You see, we don’t “exceed” expectations at IK. We create completely new ones by creating tools that inspire new levels of creativity.

Live Music Spin with Shauna Sweeney
Tune in live: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2012/08/05/ava-live-radio-features-singer-songwriter-shauna-sweeney

Join host Jacqueline Jax and co-host Steve Minotti for a Live Music Spin with singer songwriter Shauna Sweeney. You will love meeting this young artist who brings life to every performance with her vibrant spirit and charm. With a sunflower-laden acoustic guitar and her African Djembe drum in tow, Shauna Sweeney is a musician, songwriter, and charismatic entertainer with a gift for capturing hearts and ears everywhere she goes. Her original songs take listeners on a ride through precocious humor, disarming self-deprecation, and the vulnerability of love.

“People ask where I get the ideas for my songs, and to me it’s sort of like dreaming; sometimes it’s straightforward and other times, very abstract. Sometimes different elements come to mind that make you think, ‘whoa, where did THAT come from?!’ And one of the great parts is seeing how the different pieces swirl around together until they become the cohesive whole.” Shauna Sweeney wrote her first song at age 5, in purple crayon-a six-line ditty about a boy that she knew, “a long time ago”. Her lyrics may still touch on similar subjects, but her poignant phrases woven into resounding melodies reflect how much “living” she has accomplished in almost two decades since.

Show Topics: Using social media to develop a fan base, the differences between Reverbnation & CD Baby, and different ways to reach out to music industry professionals.
