It’s not just about getting your music heard – it’s about people hearing the music you intended to make. Being independent is a way of life and there’s no place where that’s showing more than in music. Taylor Swift is an independent artist. Beyonce will soon be an independent artist. Frank Ocean dipped on his record deal. Look what Chance the Rapper has done in 2016. He’s got a damn Kit-Kat commercial. Do the work, make good music and why can’t you create your own path to success?
