“Quit thinking labels are going to hand you a check because you are hot. Go make a couple dollars, save a couple dollars and spend a couple dollars on yourself if you believe in yourself. You shouldn’t be afraid to network and ask people questions. That store clerk may know somebody who knows somebody else’s network. Dedicate yourself to your goals. Don’t be afraid to step out of the box and make universal music. It’s all entertainment at the end of the day…”
Check out the interview with Miss Money exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
SKILLY: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Miss Money: It all started once I realized my passion was my natural craft, from winning awards and compliments and seeing this impact my words as a poet and artist put on people from praises. I then got more into how to properly do things and it led me into a world of business, and success with ups and downs.
What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Some creative ways I use are offering other artists incentives that I know they may need, whether it’d be promo for an X amount of time. One of my personal outputs are contests with prizes that include things artists need. Along with making comical videos with my music as the background.
What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
The greatest challenge is balancing and remembering different opportunities. Taking advantage of our “want to do’s” along with sticking to the plan without change and following through is a hard proces. I overcome them by constantly reminding myself to stay on track and write down things in a planner; cross checking and staying stern to my methods no matter what.
How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
The music scene is bluntly unsupportive and secretly supportive. As far as outputs, there are none. It’s a dry open market as far as connects being able to come in and offer ops. There are really none to be found here.
Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
I think the future of music is going to be nothing but bass and electronic with no words, only sounds of humming. That is what’s going to have people hypnotized in a trance. That’s just my opinion though. I think artists can get more involved now by creating more electronic and dance.
What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Quit thinking labels are going to hand you a check because you are hot. Go make a couple dollars, save a couple dollars and spend a couple dollars on yourself if you believe in yourself. You shouldn’t be afraid to network and ask people questions. That store clerk may know somebody who knows somebody else’s network. Dedicate yourself to your goals. Don’t be afraid to step out of the box and make universal music. It’s all entertainment at the end of the day.
What inspires you to write your next song?
My inspiration comes from tribulations in in my life. I’ve been and seen so much that I’m able to write about it. It also comes from what I feel and think at the moment, and some of how I think things should be. It comes from challenging myself to write more creatively each time and enjoy it.
What do you think makes a great song?
I think a great song is made when it is written and recited with passion. It should be critiqued with good word structure that is understandable, and sticks to the concept. A good song is one that has a beat, that even when you mute the words, you can still hear the words in the instrumental, if you’ll feel what I’m saying haha (Of course we do Miss Money)!
