How many singer songwriters do you think exist? Tens of thousands, are more? Entertainers? Performers? A bunch, maybe? So which are you? Do you know? Finding out who you are is probably the most important thing you will ever do in your career. Have you written some cool songs? So have thousands of other writers. I just got back to the office from a meeting with Grammy award winning producer Matt Still. He commented,"ARTIST WHO ENTERTAIN WILL RISE TO THE TOP". Do you believe that?
What has to happen in order for people to listen to your songs rather than the millions of others out there? Maybe it's build it, and they will come? Probably not! So what must you do? If you don't already know the answer, you had better get with the program. Time is passing fast ,and will fly by before you know it. You must get to work. No one is going to do it for you. The good news is there are people out there willing to help if your willing to do the work. If your not willing to do the work my advice is quit now and don't waste your time or others. That's the reality you must face!
I hope this signs for you, and your not just slowing down to avoid hitting someone that is at work. The truth is the ones that are working will run over you if your in their way. So get to work and make something happen!
