I WANT TO HELP YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT WORKS!
Your music is awesome, so release it to the world.
I can show you how.
This is your starting point. The beginning of your musical journey.
You are a future artist if you have at least some latent talent but need to cultivate and nurture that talent so it can grow.
A typical example of a Future Artist is someone who “Jams” with their buddies in their garage or basement.Their music is raw and simple but they love it non the less.
You will know if you are in the Future Artist realm if: You invite friends and family over for a party or social gathering where you and your buddies play some music and people find a reason to go get a refill while you are playing your set.
Artists in the phase of their music career need much practice (alone or in front of a crowd either one) and if they are serious will be honing their craft in preparation for the next phase.

This is the second phase of your musical journey.
Once you have paid your dues by playing gig after gig, sometimes 3 & 4 nights a week plus the weekends, you might be ready to move into this phase.
A typical example of a Touring Artist is someone who plays the local club circuit as either a solo artist or member of a band. Their musical talent is good enough to catch peoples attention.
You will know if you are in the Touring Artist realm if: You invite friends and family over for a party or social gathering where you and your band play some music and they invite others to come along. People will find a reason to come to the garage or basement to check out your set.

This is the third phase of your musical career.
By now you have been touring constantly & regularly at the regional or national level and it’s time to move into the big leagues!
A typical example of someone ready to become a Recording Artist is someone who has had enough exposure that their name is recognizable by people who are fans of their genre.
You will know if you are ready to move into the realm of the Recording Artist if you have had several inquiries from scouts and have or soon to have a manager.
