I am a beginning musician. How do I get recognized faster?

I also make music, but writing is my strength. I try to make more and more everyday because it plays a big part with the lyrics. Always try to improve.

Hi Eddie!

Great question. As a current college student and music producer, what I have learned so far is that social media is very powerful. What you need to figure out is the certain algorithms for each social media app (Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, etc.). By figuring out social media algorithms, what I mean by this is figuring out what time is the right to to post content, what content is popular, how to interact with your followers, how to reach new audiences, etc. You also need to be making good quality music, that being said, do not post a song right away when you finish it. Sit on it for a while, don't listen to it for a week, after that week come back to it and if it sounds good to your fresh ears, it is ready to go.

Making it as a musician will be hard but the pathway is very fun. Right now, focus on building your brand and social media. The more you look the part to your audience, the more followers you will get.

Hi Eddie. Your devotion to crafting better lyrics is wonderful! However, you are asking the wrong question because creating music has nothing to do with “getting recognized.” If that is your motivation, you will be sorely disappointed.
When you create anything, it must be done purely for the joy of it. It is work, but enjoyable work.
Don’t be too quick to publicize your work if it is not your absolute best. Just because we are blessed with many online avenues, such as YouTube, doesn’t mean that everything that is posted there is of any real quality. Don’t play into the numbers, or popularity, game.
Stay true to yourself. Keep at it every day. Do it whether or not anyone ever sees or hears it. If you make this your motivation, then you will succeed in the best way possible- at being a creative person.
The reward is not in the fame, but in the creativity.
Did you know that the greatest composer of all time, J. S. Bach, consecrated each of his compositions to the glory of God? Therein lies your truest inspiration, too. Give the gifts that God has given you back to Him and you will soar!
