If you don’t invest in yourself, in your own artistry, then how can you expect anyone else to?
What do we mean by investing in your artistry?
Well as an artist, whether you’re a singer, songwriter, musician, or producer, the greatest gift that you can give yourself, is investing in your talent and pacakge!
By that we mean do enough for yourself that people in the industry can’t help but talk about how great you are.
Do enough for yourself that managers and A&Rs are coming to you, and your shows.
Now don’t forget that it’s not just about your ability, but the entire package. You’re a brand, not a band.
Don’t get too worried by this, all we mean is that everything about your artistry should come together ato give you your own unique identity.
So let’s break that down a bit more, what does ‘unique identity’ actually mean?
Look at the list below and hopefully this will serve as a great starting point for you:
- Do you Practise Everyday?
- Have you got a Coach / Mentor?
- Are you working with a Writer/Producer to Help Create your Sound?
- Have you Prepared a Set of Original Material?
- Have you Put your Band Together?
- Do you Surround Yourself with Like Minded People?
- Do you Regularly Perform Live?
- Have you Got your Branding Sorted?
- What’s your USP? Do you Even Know What a USP is?
See what makes an artist amazing is not only that they sound and create amazing music, but when we look at them, everything fits perfectly and makes sense.
In addition to the music, their branding looks great, their social media’s all align, their videos are consistent to their brand identity, the photography looks great and you can just tell that they’re an artist.
At our Ultimate Artists development programme, we look at all of this along with the practical elements like your unique sound, vocal technique, performance, songwriting and the list goes on. To find out how you can be at our UA2018 summer residential just click here: UA2018 Summer Residential
It really is much more than music.
