What 3 things does anyone starting in the music industry need to know?
In my way of thinking, 3 things a person getting into the music industry must know is to have a budget as it is not cheap, to study and gain information about where and when to promote your music, and last but not less to be constant, which in my opinion is key.
What would you do differently if you were starting in the music industry now?
Thankfully I was and still around the right people that helped and supported me grow in these three months of officially getting into the music business. Obviously, there is still lots to learn about the music industry but it’s safe to say I’m off to a good start.
Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?
When it comes to who influences me the most on my growth, I would most definitely say the people around me. As we share the same goals, we inspire each other to do everything to the best of our abilities, and even when times get dark will always have something to keep our head up.
What would you say is the #1 key to success in the music industry?
To Be yourself and to be original, in my opinion, is the #1 key to finding your voice and success in the music industry. In this day of age, a lot of upcoming artists focus on sounding the same as another big established artist. As it is okay to be inspired and look up to any big artist, being original and finding your own voice in your music is key.
Talk about the biggest failure you’ve had. What did you learn from it?
As life is full of ups and downs, I had my fair share of failures that I have learned such valuable lessons that got me where I am today. I have learned that when you put your mind and dedication on seeing a better version of yourself and stay on that path of manifestation you will succeed in what you want out of yourself.
What has been your biggest accomplishment and why do you think it was a success?
My biggest accomplishment so far would be getting to know myself better and finally becoming a version of myself that my younger self would never think was possible. With the help of self-discipline and dedication, I have put myself in a better position to succeed which I find as a big accomplishment in my life.
What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?
What keeps me going no matter the situation ahead, is the vision I pursue myself in the future that I not only wish for but must-have. As I have manifested this and am willing to go all the way no matter the cost. I myself and also the people around me help me keep going.
What made you pursue being a musician full-time?
What made me pursue being a musician is the passion and heart I put into my music. Not only do I want others to enjoy and relate to my music, but I myself am the biggest fan of my own music.
Would you ever sign a record deal or stay independent?
This is a decision that I can not say in tell the future or whenever an opportunity arises.
What projects are you working on for 2022?
As for now, I am working on releasing singles on a constant monthly basis.
