I’ve experienced while on my musical journey that it’s important for artists to build community. I would say in my early beginnings things were more awkward. Am really an introverted private person. I’ve often been criticized for not being more social.
I think to have success you have to make yourself more sociable. Especially in this music business. Although a lot of us were exposed to street life where you often learn not to trust people. I think that plays apart for me also. I would say plus for the fact that my music isn’t the friendlyest of soughts either. So with that being said along my image I guess I don’t come off as approachable to most. I would say when indeed, that’s not the case.
Iam a real cool down to earth chill type of dude for those who chose to get to know me. I do realize at points I can be distant.I think for me that’s only so I can stay focused.i have been somewhat very stand offish and keep people at a distance thou sometimes. I guess That’s my experience with being from the streets and dealing with people in that world. I think the music industry is similar in certain aspects, but we have to separate the two at some point. these things can definitely hurt you from building friends ships and community.
I think building a community is important because it can be the base of your support system. I think in any endeavor we all need a support system. You can start with friends and family for certain or those who just believe in your talents and vision. We all have to learn to trust ourselves and let some other things go in which we have experienced in our past. This can possibly be unhealthy for our business endeavors.
