As a producer it’s not uncommon to enjoy writing various genres of music, and to want to get it all out in the world.
But exploring several creative avenues while establishing your name as an artist can be a confusing business…
“Can I release multiple genres of music under one name?”
“Should I release my side project under a new alias?”
“What happens if my sound changes?”
With so much uncertainty on the ‘right’ way to do things, trying to break onto the scene while satisfying your many creative urges can quickly plunge you into overwhelm…
…and the overwhelm can crush your chances of making it altogether.
The solution? A focused approach to your music that puts your creativity and energy first.
So in this week’s podcast episode I’m sharing my practical, career-focused view on how to establish your name as an artist, so that you can get back to the one thing that will further your career…finishing music.
If you’ve been wrestling with how you’re putting your name out there, or if you’re flirting with a change in direction, then this one’s for you.

- Focusing on one single project while building your reputation will get you results faster and with minimal energy spent. Consider your 80/20.
- More aliases equals more time needed to put into socials, marketing and building relationships with labels, which all distract from writing music.
- Many artists released their side projects after they had already established their name in the industry.
- If you thrive writing multiple genres then thrive doing that. Don’t allow what’s going to happen later down the line to stop you.
- “It’s not about what you have, it’s about who you’ve become”.
