  1. Commit to what you are doing 100%
  2. Don’t compare yourself to others
  3. Celebrate difference
  4. Regularly re-evaluate what you are doing and why you are doing it
  5. Treat others with the same respect you’d like to receive
  6. Learn to be comfortable with taking risks
  7. Stop caring what others think
  8. See every interaction as valuable, but don’t have an agenda
  9. Surround yourself with supportive friends and colleagues
  10. Be authentic in your life and your music will reflect this

 

about Dee Byrne

Dee Byrne is a saxophonist, composer and improviser based in London. An active figure in the UK creative scene and beyond, Dee is involved in various original jazz and improvising ensembles. Her own quintet ENTROPI released its second album ‘Moment Frozen’ in September 2017 on Whirlwind Recordings to critical acclaim (‘Intense, muscular jazz voyage.’ ★★★★ The Guardian).

Dee also co-runs LUME, a small artist-run organisation with a focus on the creation of new original/improvised music. Activities have included a double-bill tour in 2015, a monthly residency at The Vortex, two festivals and a most recently a performance at EFG London Jazz Festival 2017 – a collaboration with Swiss musicians produced by Serious and generously supported by the Swiss Cultural Fund. LUME’s offshoot record label Luminous releases projects by co-founders Dee and Cath Roberts.
