An artist who has had significant influence on my career path is actually Billie Holiday, but it was indirect impact. You see, I’ve always enjoyed jazz. I hopefully always will. While in Maine attending The Centre for Furniture Craftsmanship I was listening to loads of Holiday, Fitzgerald and Simone. I also listened to some @official_ellahenderson namely her song “Billie Holiday”
The song chronicles Ella’s intro to music, when she realized that it was something she loved and was able to excel at. While I wasn’t an aspiring musician, I was in the process of realizing I loved woodturning. It was my “music” if you will.
So yeah, #billieholiday played a small role in my decision to turn for a living.
