What is success? You may have noticed that more and more artists achieve huge success on YouTube and are then taken on by music majors or talent shows.
You may also have noticed that those artists have something in common:
1) they lean on a professional music production team
2) they release high quality singles instead of a full album
3) they follow precise scheduling alternating the release of singles with other music contents, such as their appearance on social networks, videos, gigs, events, promos, backstage footage or interviews.
HOW CAN YOU ACHIEVE SUCCESS?
You know that you have written interesting songs and that your band “rocks”, but you’re still wondering “Why can’t I hit the big time? Why can’t I reach my target audience?"
The good news is that you no longer have to be in your twenties to be successful.
The bad news is that today you can hardly hope that someone from a record company contacts you after listening to your demo featuring you singing over a guitar.
Modern investors, labels, music majors, networks or talent shows, no longer want to spend money for music production. What they look for is a finished and promoted product. This means either you won a Talent Show or you have to produce yourself with quality.
Self-production is the hardest risk the young bands run. It may compromise your career giving a wrong image of your band and your sound. “We’ll make it by ourselves” is the trap to avoid!
