So I’m taking this business class that explains the music industry and the different career paths that you can take. coming into this class has totally changed my outlook on where my career is going in the music industry. this class has taught me everything i thought i knew. the dream of an artist is usually go to LA and get discover but there is so much more out there than just LA and New York city. If thats your dream you should re- consider. its so many other ways of being successful in the music industry. Go everywhere else but there. Don’t get me wrong I’ve been to both cities and they are lovely. Theres so many people there just like me. Its much easier and more of a learning experience to get them to come to you. You don’t need labels or anything like that all you need is consistency and hard work to make it in the industry. Even the artist are starting to realize that. So many artist are quitting there labels everyday a lot of them go on to creating their on label or produce their own things. lets not forget about youtube and all the other sites that can help you like: Facebook, twitter, Vimeo just to name a few. All it takes is connecting with your fans. Don’t just be a taker be a giver.

This stuff is major!!!! Changes are taking place!!! Record companies are in trouble witch also means more jobs….. if thats something We would choose to do as artist. since artist are leaving their label that means now they need help as well. Or maybe social media may be a better route to take.
