I have been involved in the music industry over a decade, consistently pursuing my dream and most recently understanding what my purpose is as an artist. I am here to uplift the mass and be a reminder of the greatness that all of us possess. I do this through my gift of music.
I am extremely encouraged in recent times because of how the face of the music industry is changing. It allows access to areas that may not have been accessible ten years ago. The advent of blogs and social media has enabled me to provide insight into who I am as an artist and a person to the entire world. I am grateful for that.
This is a different time. It is easier to maneuver through some areas, however other areas remain a mystery. Most times the information needed to gain access to these areas will not be available on-line. Nothing substitutes the relationship.
Last week 5-15-2013 courtesy of Pave Settings Entertainment I took part in a Teleconference called Breaking into the Music Industry Ft Malik Yusef of Good Music. Malik’s resume is loaded with experience in the industry that is invaluable. His accolades range from Tony Awards to Grammys. The relationships he has fostered are golden.
During my time in this industry I have spent A LOT of money for situations that I assumed would help me along my road to success. I have paid to perform at conferences. I have sold tickets for shows. I have spent money for promotions. Sometimes I would benefit. Sometimes I did not benefit. I always chalked it up to paying my dues.
My experiences in terms of the money I have shelled out paying my dues were valuable, however the 2 hours we spent on the phone with Malik during the teleconference was eye opening. There were tips that were given that I moved on right away and garnered immediate results. This teleconference was definitely worth the money and I am recommending it to ALL of my friends and peers in this industry.
Explaining what I learned during the teleconference in this blog would not do it any justice. I am inviting you as my personal guest to take part in the teleconference portion of this event on May 22, 2013. As a result of joining last weeks call I have been given this ability to invite those of you who I know will find value in this conversation.
There will also be a Live Group Session with Malik on the Chicago leg of the tour on June 8th. If you are truly serious about your career in this industry I should see you there. Click The links below.
