Ep 128 5 Reasons to use a Pseudonym for a D.I.Y. Rock Star Video Description While we’ve only been on our recent journey only a few short years, we have been artists our whole life. Part of that journey requires that we ask the question of whether or not we want to don a pseudonym or two in order to advance our art. This episode explores this weird and wonderful idea. Here are our 5 Reasons for a D.I.Y. Rock Star to use a Pseudonym: 1. Expresses a multi-faceted personality (From the time I started realizing myself as an artist, I have changed my name to suit each phase of my development.) 2. Provides anonymity (Allows us artists who have day jobs NOT to feel that there will be reprisals for the honesty of our expression.) 3. Makes us braver. (Just like the cover of the internet helps distance us, so does a pseudonym. I feel as if I can say much more under this cover than I could without it.) 4. Helps establish identity. (A name can help brand one artist or project from the next. Before anyone even hears your music, that might have a notion about what they might hear based on your name.) 5. It’s fun. (I’ve always liked word-play, so partly, it’s just plain fun to devise new names that express what we’re feeling or the character of a project.) What do you think? Should an artist use a pseudonym? We would LOVE to hear your thoughts on it!
