Q

What advice would you give beginner artists?


Donna Ulisse responded on 08/03/2010
A

The first thing I would say is PRACTICE all the time. It's like breathing air to me...keeps my chops up and always improves my style. The second thing is to constantly work on developing the "real you". That means finding your true voice and not letting others try to talk you out of your direction. It's very difficult to make your mind up and stick by it. Folks will always hear you the way they want to hear you but your heart will usually tell you if thats what you're supposed to be.

Good luck my friend, it's a wonderful journey!

Q

If you could meet anybody (past or present), who would it be?


Donna Ulisse responded on 08/03/2010

hmmm....I would love to have a long conversation with Jesus Christ! Wouldn't that be a cool thing? I've got SOOOO many questions...

I think the present would have to be, ummm.....some of my Italian relatives that live in the hometown of my grandparents...Lanciano, Italy. I would have to learn the language but it would fun to hear about what their lives are like.

Not a question, but a comment. You've got momentum working for you. All the bluegrassers I know are fans.

you are sooooo precious to share this with me. We are making a tremendous grassroots effort using plain old elbow grease and creative thinking (it's all I can afford at the moment). I am having the time of my life and sure appreciate all the positive feedback.

God bless you, you've made my day!

Do you rember the couple from Alabama that came to see you at Pucket's in Franklin about a year and nine months ago, for the songwriters show. Enjoying your new cd.

Oh, I'm so happy that you are enjoying my music. Was it the show that had Claire Lynch and Curtis Wright also? Seems I remember a couple that was celebrating an anniversary...was that you guys?

you need to come back so I can see your faces. I'm doing a really cool show here in Nashville on December 1st. It's called Music City Roots and there will be a couple of other acts....great lineup!
