Are You Just Like Mumford & Sons? Have You Ever Played In Front Of Just 12 People?

September 17, 2013

Have You Ever Played In Front Of Just 12 People?

One of my artists just sent this email to me.

It’s “normal” to play gigs in front of small crowds…but most artists give up and get discourged when they have only a few fans in the audience….obviously, Mumford & Sons kept going…

“Just got back from Mumford and Sons. They played in St Paul in front of 20,000 people. The main Mumford said one of the greatest lines I’ve heard in a while: ‘Thank you all so much, we were wondering where you all were when we played at the 400 Bar in Minneapolis in 2009 in front of 12 people! It got better, the next time we played the Varsity Theater, the next time First Avenue, and now we’re here!'” -Rex

So, the next time you get discouraged that there “aren’t that many people” at your gig, remember to keep going! If you’re good and keep at it, one day you’ll be playing bigger venues!

Success requires dedication, focus and commitment.

I’ve turned my love, my passion, music, into a full-time job and want to find other artists who are in the same boat.

If you know of an artist who is equally committed, please let me know!

What’s your attitude? Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Believe it or not, that determines your success! Also, can you answer these 3 basic questions?

September 12, 2013

What’s your attitude?

In life?

And about your music?

https://musicclout.com/contents/article-66-the-power-of-positive-thinking.aspx?utm_source=Potential+Members&utm_campaign=ab9f986da3-Questions_Every_Songwriter_11_6_2012&utm_medium=email

I truly believe your success is determined by how positive (or negative) a person you are.

Most artists I observe become successful because they have an amazing work ethic and great music – of course!

But mainly because they have a positive attitude!

This PR campaign didn’t work? Maybe I should write another amazing album and promote that one because it may get a better reaction.

Maybe this concert didn’t get a huge turnout. But it’s ok. I’ll work hard and promote the next gig twice as hard and it will be a success!

I see successful artists become successful because they try and try and try. And they aren’t put off by things not going their way. They keep persevering and going again and again and again until they succeed!

Artists like Katy Perry and Alicia Keyes and Robin Thicke and many others whose first (or second) or even third record deals didn’t pan out. They reinvented their sounds and image and everything.

Try something new! And remember – always keep a positive attitude!
