As a vocalist how do you get your name out there?
I want to be an iconic figure in my future.#Vocals #vocalist #music #singing #music-business
As a singer, or any professional musician, it is absolutely critical that you are a pleasant person and fun to be around. The gig only ecompasses about 20% of the time you spend with a musician give you hire. The other 80% you are practicing, communicating, and chatting afterwards. If you are the kind of musician that plays a killer show, and then hustles out the door at the soonest sighting of an exit, you'll find your gig calls getting less and less frequent.
Without a doubt, if you are able to master social media, being great company, and a half-decent vocalist, you will attract attention and find a shot at real success.
Hi! Do you want to be an iconic figure or a singer? Seeking fame for the sake of "getting famous" will leave you disappointed and empty in the long run. If you want to become a singer because you love music and are talented as a singer, that is different. The "famous" ones are marketing gurus - it's not always about the musical talent they possess. So I would suggest you do some soul searching - is it more important to you to be a true musician who works hard at her craft? Or is it more important to you to become an iconic figure? Yes, you can become both. But it is the art and craft of the music that will satisfy you, not the fame. The fame is fleeting - it comes and goes. Fans are fickle. You can't control fame or predict it. But you can control how hard you work and how you invest your time and talents and what sort of artist you become. I wish you well in finding your true calling and in discovering what your best talents really are. Don't be fooled by the "glamour" and glitz. Devote yourself to your talent and calling, not to "becoming" iconic and you will enjoy life more! Peace!
