The biggest myth I come across when I talk to so many singers, songwriters and independent artists --- is that "If you build it.. they will come". Nothing could be further from the truth.
It's not all bad news though! We are in the wild west of the music industry right now. The opportunities have never been more exciting for us as artists. We just need to learn some simple skills to set us apart from all the noise in the market. You are in charge of your own discovery. In today's music industry no one will do it for you and you are the one that your fans want to connect with, not a label or a middleman.
