Balance is a key essential ingredient to anyone’s wellbeing and success. Some of the people who work here at Heavy Hitters Music are also composers, and they gig. They work here for 9 hours. They have to rehearse afterwards or play a show, and then they write music all weekend. Monday morning they start the grind all over again. It’s hard to balance business and creative and family life, and you can’t forget your spiritual side either.
