Aspiring musicians have some stiff competition when it comes to getting noticed. All over the internet, you see talented individuals belting out covers and originals on a daily basis.

It requires both a mastery of charm and a knowledge of how social media works. Talent might get someone to talk about you for a moment. But, you’re going to need more than that if you want to get to the next level.

With websites like YouTube and Sound Cloud, artists can share their music to any fan willing to listen.

Have you noticed how there are so many “find the next superstar” type of show recently? It’s like they got the idea of American Idol and multiplied it. It’s a new and unconventional way to get noticed, but hey it works. There are music superstars who were discovered from appearing on shows like these. Not all of them even won! Stages like these are where you need to turn the dial up on your charm. Audiences gravitate towards those who not only sing well but can show how pleasing their personality is.

Kick it Old-School

There might be new mediums and channels to express your musicality. But, doing it old-school still works for a lot of people. Booking live gigs and continuing stage performances is still a great way to get noticed. Record labels and fans like artists who have a superstar stage presence. Interacting with the audience is something a lot of artists crave as well that they don’t get by simply doing a YouTube concert. It’s also a great way to practice performing in front of a lot of people.
