CRADLE OF FILTH Keyboardist / Backing Vocalist LINDSAY SCHOOLCRAFT On Being A Musician - "Positive Criticism Is There For You To Grow, So Listen Good!"

Cradle Of Filth backing vocalist / keyboardist Lindsay Schoolcraft has checked in with a new update:

"I’ve heard people mention this or have asked me this many time in the past and NO! Going solo versus being in a band is NOT easier. It’s just as hard and just as much work, only major difference: you get stuck with the entire bill at the end of the day. Yes, the creative control is awesome as a solo artist, but it’s all on you and you have to make sure your vision is completed beginning to end. And that takes many years of developing tedious time management and organization skills.

There is definitely a family atmosphere with being in a band. I’m lucky to say my hired guns and team are like family, and the family will keep expanding over the years! 

All I’m trying to say is that it doesn’t matter what you choose to do in this industry: start a band, go solo, be a live session for hire, or become a studio musician or composer. It’s all a lot of hard work regardless of your path. Keep pushing people, keep supporting one another too (because competition is dumb. And so is being butthurt, positive criticism is there for you to grow, so listen good!"
