How To Grow Your Music Career During A Pandemic
Even though the pandemic has caused most industry activities to grind to a halt, that doesn’t mean artists need to put their careers entirely on hold. While hibernation mode is certainly an option for some, other artists are finding ways to market their music in spite of everything.
In this latest piece from MusicThinkTank, contributor Isaiah Ram looks at what artists can and should be doing during this period of isolation to grow their careers.
“You’ll never have this much free time ever again! As a creative, you need to engage in writing and making music. Many artists like Taylor Swift and Childish Gambino are leaning into the depravity of the Covid-19 and they’re producing incredible albums. People also have more time to listen and engage with music, so use this opportunity to give them something new while they’re in quarantine.
If you’re having trouble fleshing out an entire album, at least work on singles. At minimum, start inputting your ideas into your DAW and practice production. There are tons of resources and videos on YouTube to help you start getting better at your craft. Adapt with the times or be left behind.”
