Becoming a Musician: From Mexico’s Silver Mines to the Clubs of San Antonio

BY JOE REYES
@ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

Joe Reyes owes his work ethic to his family and the discipline they instilled in him. The promise of work in Mexico’s silver mines attracted his great grandfather’s family, but the Mexican Revolution sent his family fleeing north to Texas. His early exposure to music came in the form of folkloric Mexican music, but it was “Los Beatles” that struck a chord. Joe Reyes’ presentation shares his musical journey that included different acts, international tours and even a Grammy win and a Latin Grammy nomination.

What is a Musician?

BY ELIZABETH SIMCOCK
@ VOL 24 ON NOV 09, 2017

Elizabeth Simcock wants to explore how we understand the word "musician." Musicians are powerful: picture people fawning over a lead singer on guitar. But musicians are also powerless: imagine the parent saying, "You're doing WHAT for a living?" Being a musician has a certain mystique that is captivating, even though the reality can be challenging in every way possible. But saying, "I am a musician." What does that really mean? Come along on a 20x20-second ride that may change the way you think of yourself.
