#040 jorge the jay


"Gorgeous Jorge is a singer-songwriter who once produced a catchy one-line tune and now the whole world thinks he’s something special. He was in the right place at the right time ten years ago and was delivered the chance for a home-run that would provide him with a nest egg for life. But, life is tough when everyone in the business compares what you do now with something critically acclaimed that you did partially by accident a long time ago. To stay relevant against the constantly shifting opinion your feathers have to grow bolder, your beak a bit harder, and you have to start to believe that maybe you are somewhat extraordinary after all." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
