I my studio sessions with new artists the question almost always comes up and that is How do I get noticed as new artist.
Many will think a move to Los Angeles, Atlanta or New York is the instant fix but as anyone who already lives in those cities will tell you, it is not that easy for them either and they live there. So moving is not always the answer, especially in the digital age. During the 90's and early 2000's, if you lived in Chickenfoot, Texas, a move to a bigger city would be necessary. After all, how could you promote in a town of 200 people? But, now in the digital age, you can bring the big city to Chickenfoot all at the click of a mouse.
The first thing you need is a great song. Whether it is Rap, Pop, Country, R&B, EDM or whatever, the song has to be great. Not just good but Great! You need to stand out from the crowd.
You may ask, how do I know my song is great? Put it out on the internet and test it! Get you a soundcloud, youtube, facebook, twitter and instagram account and release your song to the world and see what feedback you get.
Social media is a must in this digital age! If you don't have many followers, I suggest you get to working. It is hard work but it can be done if you want success bad enough.
Once you get this first step done and working you are well on your way.
Next month I will bring you part 2 of the process. But for now get to working on part 1!
I am a total music fan and enjoy working in the studio. To know me is to know music.
