  • Yes it's totally possible!

    I feel that a big factor that makes it hard for aspiring artists to actually become 'famous' if you will, is that nobody can produce better music than what's on the top charts. I have found many songs that I would consider way better than your classic rap hit that you would find on the billboards from just casually browsing instagram or other social medias.

    The takeaway is to use the internet to your advantage. With the right amount of effort and promotion, acheiving your goal as an artist will be a fairly smooth ride.

  • I'd say its all about marketing yourself online as part of the solution and another way is searching the cities to find where you could market to. But if it's about singing almost all of this can be promoted and featured online, it's about using social media and the right sites to promote yourself. I also think it's about finding places that will let you play for little to no cost to get yourself out there so people know your name. Also many bands where I am have cover songs and when they start to get a following they throw in some of their original music as part of the set. That could be something you could do too

  • It might be harder if you start out of state - but raw genius is welcome everywhere. I know guys who can't speak English and I know girls who can barely speak any English at all who make a reasonable salary teaching or creating art. Art teachers sometimes charge $50 dollars an hour or more but that wage might be deceptive because you have studio costs and you might also have supply costs too. I know an art teacher who taught 3 students at the same time and charged each student $50 per lesson netting him $150 in 3 hours.

  • There are many ways and places to start out. Just create what you want to create and people that like it will find you as long as you put yourself out there. Nashville is a great music city but any city with lots of people will do. Remember justin bieber started out on YouTube.

  • You can be discovered anywhere if your art is good. You just gotta market it online, at artshows, through networking, or whatever maybe on amazon. You gotta have a market and you will get found if your stuff is good or one would think that is.

  • It would depend on the genre of music you are doing. Country would be best suited for Nashville. Blues in Memphis. Reggae and Latin pop in Miami. Most other genres, yes, NYC and LA are your best bets, but it is possible to have success from any origin. You just need the right exposure.

  • Of course it's possible. London, Berlin, Rome and Moscow exist too.

    Anyway, when have you "made it"? When you can afford rent and bread at the same time? When you have an audience of millions? Be precise.

  • To be honest you can make it anywhere. It's all about buzz and collabs and knowing the market and pandering to people and a apaticiuclar sound.
    The look also matters as well as the gimmick and drama to a exented.
    Be likeable thenif u have talent that wpuld br good as well.
    Start out with the hits then do your true art stuff.

  • Is recognition your only criteria for "making it"? If so, you can make it anywhere. This is the information age. You can be seen all around the world in a few moments. It might be more difficult to become wealthy as an artist that way though. Most people are compelled to buy when seeing art first-hand. I wouldn't expect an internet art dealer to be very lucrative.

  • Hey it's La Bianca the not stripper. I would say it depends on what you sing. You should do youtube and social media stuff too. I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve though.

  • It's possible. But regardless of where you try, it will be difficult. Even New York and Los Angeles are known as places where many dreams come true but many more are broken.
