Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

Sing, but don't sing drunk. Avoid the jitters by practicing. Remember people want to see and hear something different. Don't be trepidacious, because there is nothing wrong with what we do. Record it when it sounds good, and when the band sounds good...there might not be another chance.
