The MusicianMonster ManifestoA New Breed of Musicians
Good music is characterized by its ability to ignite a feeling in someone other than the artist that created it.
If you consider yourself a musician then you must measure the quality of your music by the impact it has on the life of someone other than yourself. If you write music for you, you are not an artist, you are an amateur, and you are selfish. From now on, success as a musician will simply be a function of how well you can inspire those around you.
Getting signed isn't the goal
The primary goal of a musician should be to find, interact with, and build an audience. This used to be the job of a record label because they had the resources…not anymore. Your are no longer tied town, limited, or controlled by a record company. With a simple change in mindset you can build an audience on your own terms.
Fans come first
The "Rock Star" cliche' is outdated
Audiences want to participate, not spectate. It’s all about making them the star. Not you… Your audience wants to be on the stage with you not on the stage below you. They want to feel like they are a band “member” and that they have a personal relationship with you.
Do this to GO PRO
Do this to stay an amateur
