THE PICK YOURSELF PRINCIPLES
To become a successful artist,
you have to create remarkable art
The music industry is a notoriously tough business. Contrary to common belief, it's neither luck nor supernatural talent that's responsible for success. If you want to be among the few artists who "make it" out of the millions who don't, you have to have a great strategy and the grit to execute it.
Based on more than 15 years of experience in the music industry, I have distilled three essential principles that I believe make a difference.
Create music that matters and find your unique artistic voice
The world doesn't need yet another mediocre copy of your favorite artist. Be audacious and dare to carve out your own sonic niche.
Grow a tribe of 1000 true fans instead of social followers.
With a loyal audience who gives a damn, everything is possible. Serve your true fans, lead your tribe, but don't chase Instagram followers.
Focus on strategies, not tactics, and play the long-term game.
It's easy to get distracted by the latest hack, the newest tool, and the flashiest headline. Focus on what's essential in the long run.
