Will Sing For Room & Board
I’m gonna make this as simple as I think it can be.
To survive as a singer songwriter…to actually make money and pay your way in life in this world that increasingly expects music to be free you need 3 main things. Consider this your bare bones professional musician toolkit:
- Talent…spend your “10,000 hours” and really turn yourself into the singer or player you’d actually want to go see
- Passion…you gotta see through struggle…and rebound from rejection…and be willing to work (and wait)
- Marketing mindset…if you’re not born with it, get it as soon as you can because it might be most important of the three
OK…there’s your 3 piece toolkit for success as a musician. Tomorrow’s too late to start because it never really gets here. If you’d like to expand on these three points or if you’d like me to, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
