I am Iranian, but a US Citizen. I do not have UK ancestry.
I guess what I meant by the "main reason I'd want to move here is because of music" is that I'd like to gig here and focus on music, but still perhaps work as a contractor either in the UK or still make money in the US and live here. I don't know if there are laws that prohibit making money in another country and I understand if that was granted their may be double taxation for such a situation.
I have looked into:
1. Volunteer work as a way to get a Visa but would like more info*
2. Getting a job here and getting sponsored
3. Getting an entertainers visa.
Right now, I'm just trying to find the best possible route...
