How many times have you just wished there were more hours in the day to work on your music? We've all been there: feeling overwhelmed by life's responsibilities and just wishing we could spend all day doing what we love. But it's not that easy as a self-managed artist. Not only do you have to juggle your day job and your music, but you have to act as a manager, publicist, booker, and more, all of which eats up your creative time to work on your craft and songs. Damen Samuel, an international singer-songwriter and traveling troubadour based in Melbourne, Australia, has more than a lot on his plate. Between having two children, a full-time job, and managing his own music, he still finds time to successfully submit to and perform at big events like the CMJ Music Marathon in New York. We caught up with Samuel to find out just how he manages to do it all.
