Musician and singers are very creative and artistic individual. They work in myriad locations, both indoors or outdoors, in the United States or even internationally. The musician/singer may be booked to perform in massive concerts or in a small local bar or coffeehouse. Singers usually perform as solo acts or with a band. Many singers and musicians write/compose and perform their own music whereas others "cover" other performers' songs. Musicians/singers who perform in larger venues should be capable of working with a large number of people--from sound technicians to stagehands--and should be comfortable being on stage in front of anywhere from a few to thousands of people. Some musicians/singers may be entirely solo and sign/find their own gigs and performances while other singers and musicians work with an entourage of assistants, managers, coordinators, etc.
