Throw me a life preserver I am drowning in a ocean of musicians, splish splash most of what you hear is trash trash trash.
Got to find your niche, stay within your wheelhouse though, craft the best music you can, build your listening audience.engage and nurture them dont be an asshole, there are many of those in this world,
If possible have an artist website. I dont really, so use reverbnation hooked up with facebook works good
Now something that is important is great outstanding eye catching interesting artwork, it is critical,its a part of the whole experience you are delivering, use cool photos that go along with your music, this is something I being told over and over from those in the industry and people who have been in promotions radio and labels. Dont just throw some shitty looking piece of crap out there with your music. Find something unique, ask friends you know who are good or have a passion in this area, it helps a lot.
Get help to produce your sounds, be a listener to those who have the experience.
Invest in yourself, no one else, no one else cares. But if you are capable and know how to get along with people, then start building a team, surround yourself with this who do believe in you,
Partner up with others, do collabs, be open minded and willing to back off and let them be the star.
Be patient, sometime somewhere somehow, there is someone out there in this wasteland that will go, hey, i like your sound. Now it may happen, but if not you are not a failure,. your art reflects you that is all that really counts. Its not sales or money from your songs that makes the world go around, but it sure helps
Its not about you, its about the songs
No expectations, No disappointments. good luck
