Should you quit your tech job and join a rock band?, Ep21. by Zoë Keating
Should you quit your tech job and join a rock band?, Ep21.
Cellist Zoe Keating used to be in tech before taking on the "glamorous" life of a touring musician. In this week's Ignite Show Episode, she talks about the pizza, the long bus rides, odd work hours and making a living when you're just getting started.

Zoë Keating is a one-woman orchestra. She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello, to create lush, beautiful and otherworldy music.
Born in Canada and classically trained from the age of eight, Zoe spent her 20's dabbling in computer software while moonlighting as a cellist in rock bands. Inevitably, she combined the two and developed her now signature style while improvising for late night crowds at her San Francisco warehouse.
