So, you’ve decided to head out on the quest of becoming a successful singer/songwriter, artist or band. The first question you should be asking yourself is “WHY”? This is one of the hardest most underpaid industries in the US to make a living at. It takes years of training, playing thankless gigs in skanky bars (or worse), and at the end of it all, you’ll probably be one of the few people who really get your music.
If you answered the “WHY” question with I want to be a huge star next week… then go find a day job. This industry isn’t for you. It will only disappoint you and blaming everyone else for your lack of success. If you answered “Because it’s who I am, and I can’t do anything else”…. then…. CONGRATULATIONS!! You might just have a shot at this thing!
