Hi @Bill from November Sound ! Well, I agree with a lot of the original thread responses. Personally, I think I'm a songwriter. In my living room, good or bad, it's my favorite thing to do. I've never called myself an artist. I think it's a choice of description and what the word means to you. But, I really want to say I'm happy for you guys getting a radio interview and playing live on the radio!!! That is so wonderful!!!! Maybe it's not new to you lol but I think it's so awesome, and I'd love to hear it!!  :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:
Do what makes your heart sing :)

Thanks @Kellyanneg  it's probably up or will be up online eventually … I'll try to find it. (Melissa recorded it on her phone while we were driving...but the vid will give you motion sickness)

All this gives more questions than answers: 

Is being an "artist" intrinsic? - I am now calling myself an artist.

Is being an "artist" extrinsic? - Someone else just called me an artist.

Both of them matter @Bill from November Sound imo..
But I think that the extrinsic reasoning is the best..
You 'are' an artist when the audience perceives 'the art'.
But as you've noticed, different types of audiences might yield different results..  ;)
