Most of us have a dream. I always wanted to be a world famous footballer or a singer and when I realised that my footballing skills were close to zero I become even more interested in the music world. The question is where it is still possible to become a star without risking everything by giving up your job. There are a few different ways of trying to do this these days.
The old fashioned way of making a name for yourself in the music world was to hit the road in a van. Obviously you won’t be undertaking big tours around the country if you have a job to hold down, but maybe you could get some gigs in a local venue. Thousands of people all over the country do this without ever progressing further but if you have the talent then it could just be a stepping stone for you.
Try a Reality Show
A way of becoming famous quickly has emerged in recent years with the birth of TV reality shows. These give you a chance to get on the telly right away but aren’t right for everyone. If you want to be considered as a serious artist then you might consider it to be beneath you. You would also need to worry about being stereo typed afterwards.
Launching a catchy tune on a YouTube video could work for you. The problem is that it needs to be something extra special to take off. A lot of videos have hit it big in the last few years, although following up the success could be trickier. Like the rest of the points, if you the talent and the drive then you can make it one way or another if you try hard enough and are persistent.
Cut a Disc
It is easier than ever before to make your own recording. If you still think that it costs a fortune to make a record then it is time to think again. There are now studios which offer an extremely affordable price for making a professional sounding disc quickly. If you do this and then get people to listen to it then you should find out one way or the other whether you have what it takes to go further. If you are going to try this method then you should be sure to go the studio well prepared and raring to go.
