Getting Started.

Before you start recording, you have to make a good profile- so go over to Sound cloud and make the most intriguing profile you can. Think about the type of music you want to make- if its sad/alternative, maybe choose a dark and melancholic theme. If your music is upbeat and positive, use bright colors and light shades. This will draw in the type of users who would appreciate your music, making you more likely to become popular and be shared by your fans. Create an interesting name for yourself- one that you're sure to like. If you constantly change your musician name people may get confused on who you are. Another good way to start out is to get many social media accounts (if you haven't already) and use your musician name on there. Creating a name for yourself on many sights will help you gain traction, so if you have any other talents including art, poetry, or photography, try to gain an audience on sights like Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. If you gain an audience online- you can direct them to your sound cloud once you release a couple of songs.

Recording and Editing your Music.

Once your profile on Sound Cloud and other social medias are set up, be sure to actually start making music if you haven't. Putting it off will lead to you never really doing it. Make sure you're using the proper equipment, get a good microphone for recording your voice and/or instrument(s), and be sure to use a music creating/editing software if you're able to. If you don't have the money, Garage Band is always an option, but it may not create the sound you want. If you have a vision of the sound you want to create, but you don't know how- be sure to look up a Garage Band tutorial, or ask around online and see if anyone can give you some pointers.

Gaining Traction and Keeping it.

If you've released a few songs and you still haven't seen many results online, try reaching out to family and friends to check out your work. It may be embarrassing at first, but if you're sure you're talented, and you're proud of the work you've posted, they will be sure to help you get noticed. Being known online is nice, but in order to perform live, people in your neighborhood and town/city will have to know about your music, and have the desire to see you live. Parents and relatives will be happy to post a link to your profile on Facebook, and will be happy to talk to their friends about it. Boom, now your famous. Give me money.
