Songwriting And Building A Sustainable Career

1. As a songwriter, what type of environment do you find you write the best in? What sorts of things or tools do you need around to be in the right headspace to write?

I have a home studio I work from, which can be both convenient and distracting. You basically never have to change out of your pj’s, although extremely comfortable, it can slow the process down. I actually love to write in new locations, i.e other people’s studios, writing spaces, in nature, etc. As far as tools go, another person is usually preferred  in the process for me. I thrive off of collaboration and other artists’ energy. Having a piano and guitars laying around is great too, as I write differently depending which instrument I have in hand. I used to rely on being inspired to write, but when you are trying to make it your path, you really have to become consistent and productive.

We have seen several artists who have signed contracts with different brands of clothing lines, shoes, perfumes, and engaging in significant talk shows. Branding for a musician is not that easy and comes with a complex structure that needs to be followed. With branding, you can market your music and yourself to people worldwide. Why is that? It gives you the focus on what you need the most to excel in the industry and identifies your audience and how to impress them.

Thompson – “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.
