"In this current climate, all commercial musicians/recording artists are required to create their own careers from the ground up. Gone are the days where one waited to be discovered and groomed, then handed resources and opportunities just for being in the right place at the right time. Many musicians still wait for that magic romantic moment, and unfortunately, they will have dreams that never come true. The artists that work their music careers like a full-time job, the ones that push and sweat and sacrifice, those are the only ones that will have a real shot at that dream."
