Get Local.

Remember that song you heard that made you realize the world turns to the sound of music? Ok, maybe it wasn't THAT serious, but it was profound, I'll betcha.... 

Well, that song (and the thousand you've loved since) was created by a person. A living, breathing human who knew that everyone but him may very well hate the tune, and that was fine in their opinion. They were from someones hometown, and they had the support of those local fans to carry them through the times of learning, and to share in their triumph in times of success. My area, your area, all areas have unheard-of talent lurking in the shadowy spaces...waiting, hoping that someone will come out and see what direction the art is heading. 

Get out there and find them.
