HOMEGROWN GIRL

So I grew up in a little town called Spartanburg, South Carolina.

I have lived in 4 states and am back home in SC. I now live in Charleston, a larger city than my hometown. The music industry is certainly stronger in larger cities. Future networking may be there.

But in these days of the technological revolution, musicians don’t have to live in the largest cities to do great work or “be noticed” BY the industry. And of course, it’s more affordable to LIVE in a smaller place.

So I advocate travel and continued education. In May 2016, I moved to Charleston for a better living. I believe in and invest in the Lowcountry & beyond. Let’s develop our greatest assest, us.  ~ Jo
