One thing i've realized about the music industry, from the point of view of someone who would love to do it full time but just got bogged down with other priorities is that, unless you have the amount of passion and dedication to keep you up at night and believe in yourself, no one will hand you a job. Its a field where you have to take your own decisions, from practicing to composing, to recording and releasing your album. So if you havent done all of this and made some presentable material, follow these steps.
Neeraj recommends the following next steps:
- Research about how the artists you look up to made it
- Become very good at your art and write compositions and get it produced
- Use social media for networking as well as marketing you and your content
- Build your network, play more gigs, eventually you will end up with like-minded people who will help you achieve your dream.
