Living a life full of dreams is such an amazing thing for every visionary individual. It makes someone have a purpose in life. It gives an individual the strength to go about his or her day to day activities. However, what are dreams without having the ability to live them in a real-life situation? Many music enthusiasts have the dreams of making their music careers a reality. The only challenge is that they do not know how to go about it. I have been asked by many musicians to help them find a sponsor who can help facilitate their careers.

With the high number of aspiring and upcoming music personalities, there is competition to penetrate an industry that already has dominating figures who are also maneuvering for managers and promoters who can take their careers to the next level. This becomes a challenge for the upcoming musicians who have not made an entry in the music industry. In this article, I am going to give upcoming and aspiring musicians’ tips on how they can make an entry into the music industry.

Can’t find a sponsor?

Many upcoming musicians feel like they need to have someone who can help them kick start their music careers. They sit and move around trying to find someone who can come through and hold their hand into the entertainment industry. If you are one of them, my advice to you is… Stop waiting and do something on your own. Bad advice is it right? No. To start, you are not the only musician who wants a promoter and a sponsor. There are many of you out there with the same ideas. Thus, to find what you are seeking requires you to do more so that you can land yourself a deal. Here is what you need to do.

  1. Work hard and record a quality song.

You can’t find a promoter when you have nothing to give them. This is like trying to sell a commodity that does not exist. If you want to start your music career with an appealing force, have a song or songs that can help you move about digging for an opportunity. With your song, you can move around in clubs, restaurants, and pubs if you are not a gospel musician. If you are, you can go about in churches and ask to perform. You will eventually find places where you can find platforms to showcase what you have. Thus, it is important to realize that you are your own promoter when beginning.

  1. Stay on the watch for local events in your neighborhood.

There are always local events and gigs that happen in various neighborhoods occasionally. Stop sitting there waiting for someone to help you get a big show to start your career. You see, you can start off by signing up to do your performances on the local events around your neighborhood with local events organizers. You might get little, or nothing in terms of revenue but it is worth it. How? Getting involved in such gigs will help get you noticed. It will expose you to the world. Believe me you’ll never know who is watching you. You might do it and find what you are looking for. So, get out of your comfort zone.

  1. Team up with other upcoming musicians.

Listen buddy, “NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.” We all need each other to get to where we desire to be. With due respect, we need connections to get to the place we want to be. For this reason, it is quite hard to make it in a wide industry such as the music industry without connections. Teaming up with other upcoming artists will help you meet with those who have already made a few steps that are ahead of yours. You will get to know what these musicians have managed to gain and what they have not. You will learn from their failures and make smart choices.

Besides learning, you and the musicians you team up with can organize your own small events and do performances or small gigs. With this happening, you will be increasing your popularity and creating a fan-base.

  1. Get to know local deejays.

Another way to push your song is by connecting with local deejays around your neighborhood. These deejays could be the ones who mix in the local clubs or pubs. Getting to know them will enable you to share the songs you recorded with them. This way you will manage to get into their playlists. They will play your songs in various events and places they do their thing if your songs are good enough. In the places they play your songs, you will never know what kind of audience is there. You might just get yourself far by doing this simple thing.

 

With these four tips, you can kick start your music career. Watch out for the next tips! Stay tuned!
