The Penthouse

Sitting at the dinner table overlooking the view of New York City, I sipped on my champagne, listening intently to the Grammy Award-winning writer across from me. Her words hit me like a ton of bricks, as she spoke candidly about the harsh realities of the music industry. The glitz and glamour often overshadow the struggles and hardships that come with trying to make it big. As she shared her own experiences of borrowing money from family to attend award shows, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of solidarity. Despite our vastly different career trajectories, we shared a common thread of having to hustle relentlessly to achieve our dreams. I looked around the room, taking in the opulence of the setting, and felt a sense of gratitude for how far I had come. The deal I had in place for the EDM project launching in Vegas was a testament to the hard work and dedication that had brought me to this point in my career. But as the night wore on, and the conversation deepened, I couldn’t shake the feeling of unease. The constant hustle, the pressure to maintain an image, the sacrifices that had to be made. Was it all worth it? The night came to a close, and as I said my goodbyes to the executive and award-winning writer, I found myself lost in thought. The conversation had left a lasting impression on me, and I couldn’t help but reflect on my own journey. Was I truly pursuing my passion, or was I simply chasing a dream that may never come to fruition?
