I think my brain is different, I like listening to acapella singing but I am not sure if people understand what I’m going for here. I have a lot of music for which I don’t have instrumentals and I had planned to post videos like this so producers would understand that I am a budding lyricist but I am afraid it won’t get them interested or they won’t “get it”. Please let me know what you think.

You know, I have not really thought about it. I just plan to continue writing, get better at producing and brush up on some music theory. Ideally, I would need to get into the door to be invited into more writing camps so I can help other artists get interesting music. Not really sure how to get there as yet but I’m still at the stage of improving my own craft on my own until I can get in the door.

Any suggestions?

Well, I think you could have a bright future in music with the right attitude and work ethic, which you seem to have since you want to learn more and get better. Get as many songs under your belt as possible, so keep writing and recording your songs to have a sizeable catalog. Writing camps are a great way to improve your craft, just make sure you strive to work with people who are better or more established than you because that will automatically up your level. Once you think your music is ready for prime-time, it really comes down to hustling and grinding harder than the other 99,999 potential songwriters who are also trying to get a deal. At the end of the day who sticks out the longest are the ones who are going to make it professionally. The ones that give up along the way usually end up staying where they are…

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. I plan on doing just that. I naturally keep writing and developing songs even when I’m busy doing other things. I’m currently working on my music in different genres as well. I live in a really small country so it’s not that hard to make yourself known but as you said, I should have a collection of my demos I can pull out immediately once I’m in the position to advance this career. I’ve put in enough work at this time that it will be a shame if no one gets to hear them, so I think it will be worth the effort. Thanks again for taking time to engage me!

You’re most welcome, happy to have offered my humble opinion. Just to add that success varies from person to person, and then there is that little thing called luck, although I believe people attract their own luck (but that’s another story). There are respectable people on this forum that could also provide you with good advice and perspective on your music, so I’d encourage you to keep sharing. On a lighter note, I did check out your profile and it’s the first time I’m meeting someone from Trinidad & Tobago, an idyllic place that I would love to visit someday. Anyway, I would love to keep in touch with you on this forum.

Hi Kimberly, great seeing someone apart from myself representing the Caribbean on here. Thumbs up.

I checked out your YouTube channel and I think you’re a talented singer. Actually, your songs remind me of a few of mine that I’m working on. Wishing you all the best with what you’re trying to do.
