Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Negativity is contagious. Remove yourself from people who just want to commiserate and complain. Successful people hang with positive people.

At some point you will look out at the crowd and there will be more faces you don’t recognize than those you do. That will be the moment you know you’re onto something.

As long as record labels treat fans as one-dimensional customers, they will continue to fail. They have lost touch with what sustains a music career. It’s not about the hit of the moment. It’s about the connection the fan has with the artist. Think long term.

Are you going to live in the majority and do nothing but bitch about how ‘people are stupid’ for liking the music they like (while your music disappears into oblivion), or are you going to work your ass off to get your music the recognition it deserves? Your choice.

Andy Grammer wrote 100 songs before he wrote his top 10 smash hit “Honey, I’m Good.” Why do you think the only 10 songs you've written are good enough for an album? Keep writing!

I don’t like dealing with shitty people. If they’re hostile from the get go they are probably hiding something. Instant red flag

Always look at booking a show as a partnership between you and the venue. It's never you versus them. If you have a great night, everybody wins.

Everyone thinks you have to be super young to have success in music. My “Age means nothing” series dispels that notion and highlights women and men who ‘made it’ after they were 30. I’ve highlighted about 20 men and women so far with ages ranging from 31 - 63 ✌️

Allow yourself to be open to things that have nothing to do with music. It will inspire your art.

All musicians love the art. Love the craft. Have a passion that bleeds out of their eyeballs. It’s the only reason we chose such an unstable career.

I don't foresee that happening. 1) SoundCloud had no industry support when it started (and there was no payments being made) 2) Spotify singlehandedly brought back the music industry from its death spiral - is the reason labels are profitable again. Spotify has paid out over $11B

We get so caught up in our streaming numbers that we forget there are actual humans out there we should be connecting with, not algorithms. You don't build a career with numbers. You build a career with people.

Your team doesn't have to be a traditional team. It's about bringing people on that are excited about what you're doing.
