If you are an artist waiting to be discovered, you will be waiting a long long long time...
Instead, become discoverable.
-Have a good reason for somebody to invest in you besides you 'sing good'.
-Writers write. Painters paint. and Artists release. Release things.
- The number of your Instagram followers doesn't matter. What matters is how many engage, and how many end up buying your thing, the only real metric.
-Making music is now the easy part. Getting people to hear it is very very hard. Work on the hard part of your business.
- Play live, a lot.
Labels have figured out that they need to be WAY more selective with who they sign. And they should be! They look at not only talent but NUMBERS.
Don't wait. Get to work!
