Not everyone in the music business is out to help you or can even help you. Some people thing they can take you to the stars, but there is a reason that no one else is famous because of them. We understand that every one has to start somewhere, but you also need to be cautious. So whatever you do, avoid these people!
Ah, the person who knows everyone and works with everyone. Look, if you’re going to drop names, but really have nothing to show for it, a name really doesn’t mean anything coming from their mouth.
The person that made that one person “famous.” Odds are, that ONE person that they made famous was like 25 years ago. That’s all great, but the music industry is constantly changing, so they probably won’t be much help to you unless they stayed really close with the contacts that they made.
Same with the guy who made one person famous, is the guy that still thinks the music industry is run like it was in the 80’s. The industry is constantly changing. Everything is digital. Everything is for the moment. People with no talent are getting famous. You need something really special about you right now and it doesn’t have to be how well you can sing. Make sure the person you are talking to is up to date with what is going on.
The bitter musician who thinks they could still make it and try to drag on your coat tails. They will tell you how you should play, look, dance, blah blah blah, then why aren’t you famous?
Ask yourself that. If this person is promising you everything ask yourself, why aren’t they bigger than you are at the moment?
You’ll make it, and when you find the right person, you’ll feel it in your gut.
