For New Mexico-bred singer-songwriter Eric Hisaw, the move to Austin is just starting to pay

Austin may have "done a number" on Hisaw, but he's finally reached a point in his career where he's undaunted by the difficulties of making it. "My main focus right now is getting a new record made. It's written and conceived; the songs are demo'd; and I'm already shopping it around to some labels. Sure, there's still a bunch of hills to climb, but I love the challenge of being a professional musician. It makes for an interesting life.

"I don't care about being a Nashville-type star or any of that stuff. The people whose careers I admire are guys like J.J. Cale or Dave Alvin. They've had songs covered by big-name artists and they can continue to tour and make records doing things their own way. Artistically, my goal is just to be able to find a home for the music I create. And financially, I just want to pay off some debts."
