Grand rising aSa! We're more than halfway there. This is the sixth of 10 helpful tips to consider on your music career journey. Tip number six is to Make A Plan.
Just like in tip five, this tip may sound obvious to some artists, but again, in my 13 years of experience working with indie artists, most times the artists' plan is to release song after song until one of them is heard by someone who will sign them based on pure talent.
In tip five I suggested you set an end goal and identify at least 3 other artists living your end goal. Study their career journeys and reverse engineer the path they took to achieve the goal. You can try to reach out to the artist or someone close to them for guidance and mentorship.
Keep in mind that if you reach out and don’t get an answer or worst, get rejected the first time doesn’t mean you should give up. In 2007, a young unsigned J Cole was disrespectfully rejected by Jay-Z, then literally became the first artist signed to Roc Nation in 2009.
