|What advice would you give to someone starting out in the business?
Remember the business side is as important if not more so than your musicality. Beyond that, you'd better be able to deliver the goods on stage and in the studio.
i was just tell them work hard, live out your dream and don't never let no one tell you you ca't do it cause you can.
First we have in a lot of people stay out of it if u can. If u get involved work very hard week end included
Creating can be the most truly fulfilling and worthwhile thing a person can do in life, but the "business" can suck your passion out of you very easily - beware!
A desire to be successful can destroy your creativity. Turning your "art" into a product often means the art becomes secondary to achieving success. This is more true today than ever before in the music business.
Never give up!
prepare for the worst yet hope for the best.
My advice is to remember to keep God first and last in whatever you do and to remember that if it wasnt for the Big man upstairs none of what you can do would be possible. Also to just be yourslef and not try to be someone else because if your fake you will be found out.
Be real to yourself, and get a mentor. Be thorough, and choose wisely.
Take absolute control and retain that, futurism and technology allows for that option and also value those who support you.
know yourself. who you are, what you bring to the table. otherwise, someone else will, and you will not have control over your situation.
My advice would be register with a company like ASCAP or BMI. Protect your music at all costs and chase your dreams.
I'm not that high up in the business myself so i'm still learning alot as i go. Like I said before you have to me a strong person mentally & emotionally. You also have to know that your going to take a loss in this business. You also learn very quickly that it's hard to know who to trust.
WORK HARD, DONT LET NOBODY BRING YOU DOWN, DONT RELY ON ANYONE TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOU, GO GET IT ON YOUR OWN IF YOU HAVE TO, KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE CLOUDS AND BACK AGAINST THE WALL
Believe that you're the best thing since sliced bread knowing that you're not. Your inflated confidence along with the horrible things that you'll hear will balance out and you'll persevere. Believe in yourself always.
