3. Be The Artist YOU Needed

Create art that you wish existed when you needed it most.

Think about a time you heard a song and it changed your mindset, or helped get you through something. Now imagine that that song or artist never existed. Or maybe you didn’t have that one song or artist that helped you when you needed it most. Create the music that would have helped you in a past time in your life.

By making music for others it has the opportunity to…

  1. Inspire someone else who might benefit from listening to your message
  2. Help someone through something in their life
  3. Continue a chain of positivity in the music industry

4. Express in Your Lyrics

Great lyrics carry so much power, use them to inspire positivity in your audience.

Great lyrics can open doors to new dimensions. When writing new music, reflect on this truth to keep you inspired. Make sure you express yourself and your emotions within your lyrics (but don’t put too much emphasis on the negatives!).

To really impact our audience, we must consider our effect on others. Impress your audience with praiseworthy lyrics that force them to be transported to where you were and what you felt when writing them.

5. Always Focus on the Goal

When writing your music, think hard about what your audience’s takeaway should be when listening to the song. What is your goal in writing this song?

♥️ Are you trying to motivate the listener?
♥️ To uplift their spirits in a tough time?
♥️ To express yourself and use it as a method of purging your own feelings?
♥️ To entertain the listener and make them dance along to the beat?

Your music and what you create is a reflection of you and your brand. Thinking about each track that you release helps to keep you on the right path. Focus on the final objective and dream big!
