“I think I will be trying it out and see how it goes, I really believe in my music and my creative potential.”

June 19, 2015

I just received this email from an artist and it really hit home:

“I think I will be trying it out and see how it goes, I really believe in my music and my creative potential.”

This is EXACTLY the type of attitude that works with a successful artist.

Unfortunately, I tend to receive the opposite emails all day long.

Emails closer to, “I don’t have any money” or “I’m not looking to hire anyone. I want someone to work on commission.”

Yeah, see, that’s the thing about successful artists and bands.

They believe in themselves.

They believe in their talent.

They believe their music is good.

They work hard. Sometimes multiple minimum wage jobs so they can play shows, tour and promote their music.

Sure, you can try to do it yourself.

But the music business is a RELATIONSHIP business – so unless you know every A&R executive, DJ, program director, music journalist, music supervisor, film, tv, video game, advertising executive, your time is still better spent working your day job and hiring the right person with the right connections to actually get your music listened to.

What do you think?

Do you believe in your music?

You are receiving this email because you have either sent us music in the past or are an artist or band that we’ve heard great things about (or are otherwise involved in the music business as a manager, attorney, A&R, etc).

To unsubscribe from future event notifications, please reply to this email and put “unsubscribe” in the subject line – and specify if you’d like to unsubscribe from True Talent’s database entirely or just from our music requests. We certainly can’t imagine why you’d leave though since we’ve placed now over 50 songs in film/tv, including “Sex and the City” and “The OC”. Major labels, artists and managers have asked to be added to the list.

Getting music in film/tv is one of the best ways to get exposure for music from indie / unsigned bands.
