Doublers Podcast

Erin Paul

Stay tuned for season 2, coming spring 2022! Doublers is a podcast featuring professional performing musicians who “double” in other career pursuits. This podcast is a resource for any musician looking into other careers or income streams outside the traditional performing/teaching binary. -- It often feels like a music career has two paths: performance or teaching. Our sense of self gets wrapped up in identifying as a "musician", and there's a certain pressure to stay strictly within those two paths in order to maintain that identity. If you're making money in another industry, are you a musical failure? Long before the pandemic, many musicians relied on secondary skills to pay the bills: often in careers that have nothing to do with music, teaching, or the degree they earned. Listen to their stories here.
