Alabama native Kathleen Mock is celebrating her 20th year performing on subway platforms. Playing in the subway lets her work on her songwriting: she can sing the same verse over and over for a constantly changing audience. And it pays better than playing the clubs. Produced by Todd Cerveris

The idea of playing verse over and over while busking in front of a moving audience is something I hit upon also this summer. If no one's stopping to listen to more that a song or two one should feel free to experiment with their music.
I have a number of riffs in one song that I can't do perfectly each time it must be played. Therefore I would just keep playing the song from beginning to end until I figured out what I was doing wrong to make so many mistakes and flubs. And because I was in front of a mobile audience no one was the wiser but the song got better. You see great minds think alike.
