...my goal, should i manage to get my project off the ground, is to perform in europe.

why? i'm not sure. the american pop scene is unappealing. there's something about europe that has a more global feel, i think.

I have a friend who was a bluegrass fiddler in Alberta for many years, lot's of road and low pay. Dave however was classically trained and ended up in Denmark at some point and decided to stay. He is now very well paid and plays in high end venues, dinner music, string quartets, and if they want bluegrass they can get that too. He said that people are much more appreciative of live music. Anyway, he won't be coming back to Canada.

North American radio sucks ass, format stations like Q107 make me want to puke

also I find europeans more appreciative of live music in general, be it classical, jazz or anything else
