The Top Challenges Faced by New Artists in the Music Industry, as per C.LACY
As flexible as the music industry is and many opportunities present, it is not a walk in the park for artists. Aspiring musicians face many challenges in the industry, and C.LACY shares exactly what difficulties new artists have to conquer to get their music to the public.
As a budding singer-songwriter himself, C.LACY has first-hand experience of what it takes to make it in the competitive music industry. There are many nice beats and catchy melodies out there, he said, but what makes him stand out is the authentic and relatable message in his music. One thing, according to him, is a huge challenge for new artists, and sadly, a lot of them fail.
While many new musicians are good at what they do, many get caught up trying to imitate other and more famous artists, hoping to snag the same success. According to C.LACY, making music is not about being a carbon copy of someone else. It is making something authentic out of your real-life experiences that relate to people.
However, no matter how good your music is, it will amount to nothing if no one ever hears what you do. According to C.LACY, building a great team and a loyal fanbase is essential to succeed in the music industry. He said it is another struggle for young artists, as many shady business people try to take advantage of them. Every successful musician has a great team behind them, and his team has allowed him to focus more on creating music.
C.LACY also encourages budding artists to keep the grind. No success comes overnight, and building a career in the music industry takes a lot of hard work and dedication. From his humble beginnings as a middle child raised by a single mom in Dallas, he’s making a name in the music industry one R&B song at a time.
With his hit single, ‘You Can Do Better’ surpassing 1-million streams on Spotify, it seems C.LACY has conquered the challenges faced by new musicians in the industry.
