Go to local venues - play your music - Guage how the audience reacts to help improve your performance. Always feel confident let yourself shine. It's not your business what others think of you. Don't ever give up. Lastly all applaud and appreciate other artists - it creates a wonderful atmosphere and people appreciate you.

Jill recommends the following next steps:

Perform at local venues.

Deborah’s Answer

Get involved in the music scene in your town. Go to other people's shows, learn who else is producing. Put yourself forward by doing charity/community events. Study and know what is currently enjoying popularity. And most of all, know what YOU like best. Search for similar minds/tastes in music and see how you can support one another.
Always remember that you are part of a community -- you are not a solo artist. Have fun! And let your creative juices flow

Letroy’s Answer

Making a mark in the music production industry requires you to consistently produce music that showcases your unique sound and style. Utilize digital platforms like Distro Kid and TuneCore to share your music on streaming services, creating the buzz you need to shine as a producer. I'm a TuneCore user myself, and its cost-effective membership allows you to share unlimited songs on social media, targeting your desired audience. Remember, you have to invest to reap rewards! Success isn't a matter of luck, but a testament to your determination.

Once you've chosen a digital distributor, think about using social media ads to direct listeners to your music. When artists frequently come across your music, they'll eventually delve deeper, possibly discovering something they'd like to incorporate into their own work. However, bear in mind that artists often hesitate to pay producers, believing they're doing you a favor by recording their song to your track.

To counter this, think about teaming up with someone from your personal circle, or make your presence known at open mic nights, workshops, radio station events, and other venues where your music can resonate. In my opinion, your initial step should be to join a performance rights organization like ASCAP or BMI. Subsequently, secure a copyright from the U.S. Copyright Office. This ensures that when your music reaches the public, your rights as the creator are safeguarded, providing you with more bargaining power.

Keep in mind, everyone carves their own journey, but it's crucial to understand that many artists expect something for nothing. Consider exploring websites that can assist you in securing placements in movies and television, but remember that these services often come at a cost. There's no universal solution to this, so please excuse the fragmented advice.

A promising strategy could be to identify a rising artist and enter into a 50/50 contract. This ensures that the artist can utilize your music, and you gain access to an artist who's dedicated to achieving a mutual goal.

Letroy recommends the following next steps:

1. Get a P.R.O. (ASCAP/BMI)
2. Copyright all of your music with the U.S. Copyright Office
3. Get a digital distributor. (Distro Kid, Tunecore, etc)
4. Make your presence known in the music community. (Open Mic, Artist Showcases, Radio Station Events, etc)

Darrel’s Answer

I honestly could tell you the answer to this question as a fellow artist. However, I can suggest finding some local and surrounding open mic/karaoke nights to showcase what you have. I currently do that once a week. Hope this helps get you to where you're going.

Jill’s Answer

There are many apps where you can distribute your finished products such as TuneCore or DiscoKid and others. Look for music publishing apps. Typically a small subscription. Read through the app instructions in their entirety to ensure you understand the process. Upload and see what happens. YouTube is a good educational choice. Personally AI apps are overrated - human raw talent is much better. Hope that helps.

Research music publishing apps.

Nevillath’s Answer

To network with other artists, you can have an online presence. Interact with them, maybe send them a DM expressing your respect/admiration towards their talent and art. This is what I do, although I do it because I know what it takes to create.
