Everybody has a fan base somewhere out there in the world. There are 7 billion people on earth, all you have to do is let them find you. The best way to connect with fans is to make good music. Focus on what your fans want and need. Connect with them through your music and just make good songs.
Your fans will most likely be similar to you in what you like. What kind of music do you like to hear? What do you like to talk about? Make music and put it out there so your fan base can find you. Don’t let your quality be the reason your not dropping new songs.
If your quality is not perfect don’t stress about it, just continue making good songs. Your quality will get better over time as you learn more about the music industry. Trends may be a good way get you noticed and make a little extra money, but you must utilize them and not count on them to get you “on” basically. It’s not hard to catch a trend hopper and people will notice if you don’t believe in your own music. Stick to what made you want to be an artist in the first place.
Capture that energy and release it to the world so your fans can find you. Kendrick Lamar said it best in this video below. You don’t have to be the best lyricsist or story teller, it could just be the energy you bring that people need and want. Just make good music that people will enjoy!
