Caitlin Smith is one of New Zealand’s local music legends.  Being a professional musician is challenging enough, but if you’re also a blind, female, jazz singer, with a big personality and an honest heart, it’s a rollercoaster.  Caitlin talks candidly about her experiences in the business, her struggles with addiction and mental health and the psychology of singing and performance.  This is a funny and thought-provoking episode.  Enjoy.  
Organising and promoting gigs!  One of the biggest challenges a musician has to face is how to manage and promote their own shows.  We certainly don't claim to have all the answers, but recently Bobby Kennedy organised and promoted a show for Opshop and Gorilla Biscuit in Christchurch and back in March, I promoted our first Noise Play show.  Bobby suggested we get together and compare notes, so that's what we did.  We would love to hear your thoughts and experiences too, so feel free to email and comment!
