Getting Help Means Getting Noticed

My grandmother gave me a guitar when I was only 7 years old. I had never expressed interest in one, but she surprised me with one for my birthday. I had no idea how to play it, but I spent months learning how to do so. The entire family was impressed, and despite my young age, so was I. My older brother was the star of the family because of his many talents, and I finally had a talent, too. I’ve struggled with getting my music noticed by anyone outside my family, so I hooked up with Soundcloud marketing not long ago to try to change that. It has been a long road, and I was hoping they could help.

I originally holed up in the basement of our home to teach myself how to play the guitar. I loved the acoustics in the room and it was quiet down there. My mother and grandmother often crept quietly down into the basement to listen and compliment me. Over time, my playing grew better, and I soon felt comfortable enough to bring my music out into the rest of the house for the rest of the family to hear. My dad and brother both told me that I needed to pursue music even further. This is when my family signed me up for singing lessons, and I found I excelled at singing, too.

I put my music up on a very popular video site and networked with as many people as I could there. I knew that music producers often looked through the videos to find the next big thing. After two years, no company reached out to me and I knew that I wasn’t doing enough. One of the people on the site told me that I should get on Soundcloud, and further, I needed someone to help market myself if I wanted to make it. I did that and signed up with a company that has already helped me gain interest in only 30 days time.
