Production, songwriting & commercial appeal all separate musicians. A shot clock is placed on an artists career from the moment they decide on their artist name. The path isn’t always clear, but I would like to think they always are equipped with passion.
A passion to make their lives better & to provide for their families. Passion is one thing, but what’s truly makes a musician special? I have a theory.
We were all taught to be honest as a child. To be honest is to be authentic. My theory about finding special musicians all center around being honest. The driving component of every artists success are the fans and the crowd.
There are no purchases happening if the fans aren’t engulfed in the product. My opinion simply states being honest is success. Honesty equals success for a vulnerable artist. Honesty is key.
