To me music is everything, I couldn't imagine life without it. What it gives to me is peace. When I'm in a bad mood or sad music makes me happy and when I make music it gives me a purpose in this world. Then being able to share my music in hopes of making someone else's day makes it all worth it.
To be able to make music that makes other people happy and to be able to inspire others. If someone was to say to me that I inspired them to go after their dream of making music because of hearing my music then that would mean the world to me.
Empathy. If everyone in the world could understand and relate to each other better I think the world would be a better place. One of my favorite sayings is "treat others how you would want to be treated." Not enough people think that way and it's a huge problem in this world.
Britney Spear's whole first album. I used to play it on repeat all day everyday.
Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse are two of my favorite artists and inspirations.
I make music in the hopes of inspiring others to do the same and in hopes of making someones day better simply by them just listening to one of my songs.
If you have a dream then go for it!
I haven't performed in front of an audience yet, stage fright is a horrible affliction I battle with everyday.
Nowadays so many musicians are doing everything by them self, the industry has changed so drastically. I wish there were more people out there who were able to help guide musicians in the right way without charging an arm and a leg. Music shouldn't just be about making money or about looking the part, it should be about talent and determination and creativity.
From what I have seen so far I love it. I haven't been on the site very long but I already have a song on the top 50 playlist and for that I am so grateful.
The most frustrating thing about music is how hard it is to be heard, to get exposure, and how hard it is to find the right people to collab with.
I am always on the lookout for artists from my current city and hometown. Supporting local artists is vital to discovering the next big thing.
Don't be afraid, you have to get out there and make connections. You never know who you might be talking to and how they can help you.
One of my favorite unknown artists is this lady here, she makes great Lana Del Rey covers and that's how I found her. Here is her youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqUIIEvXRXe8AM2AidDwLCg
