How do I get started in the music industry as an artist?
This is our most frequently asked question... and there are a lot of answers depending on what your real goals are. No matter what your long-term goals are, you should start in your own circle, get recommendations, and keep networking. Attend as many industry events as possible -- and meet people! Take voice lessons -- nobody has "arrived" yet. Develop a good concert presentation for your potential listeners and begin singing anywhere and everywhere. Try to work original songs into your presentation. Have business cards to let people know how to contact you.
