Today this is the second video on a series I'm doing of nine steps on how to strike a home run as a independent artist. This is how you become a successful independent artist. I gave you the first three steps in the first video so make sure yall check that one out.
This is step four. Once you get those gigs, you want to start coming up with your set list of covers. Why covers? Because those are songs that people are familiar with. You're an unfamiliar face at this point so you have to give your audience familiar material to transition into you. You got to give them something that they already know so they can rock with you and vibe with you and get comfortable with you. Reach a common ground using cover songs.
This is step two. Actually this is step five. This is when you want to start actually coming up with original songs. You've gotten your foot in the door. You're getting some gigs. You got an audience. You're doing cover songs. They loving what you're doing. Now it's time to start writing your own songs. Writing songs at this point is good for a number reasons. I can get into a whole other video on that, but just remember step five after you've come up with your cover songs start working on your original songs.
Now this is step six. I don't have my other hand so just image six. Start working on your EP. You have cover songs. Now you're starting to do your original songs. Now you want to start thinking about your project, your first project. Which is super important as a brand new independent artist. Six, come up with your EP. Get together the best original songs that you have. The original songs that the audience has felt the most, put that in a project. You don't have to put every single song that you've done in a project. Just cherry pick the best ones according to the ones that you've tested in your show and drop that as your first EP.
So those are the next three steps in this series of nine steps to becoming a successful independent artist so you can strike that home run. Peace out! Stay tune for the next video. There's one more video. Next three steps. Peace!
