Music is life, and it breeds into the soul progression, hope, faithfulness, passion, fight, love, and most importantly truthful self-evaluation. In the world of the Indie Music Hustler music becomes a main ingredient in life. A peace within a world of madness, an escape from an unrealistic reality. All music artists understand how gruesome the grind is to become successful, but they also understand the vows taken to music to achieve success. Becoming an Indie music artist is an individual journey that all successful artist have to travel in order to unite with their music. This is not to discredit all of the hard work from those behind the artists but ultimately the artists music is an expression of them.
The Indie music hustle has changed greatly thanks to our easily accessible internet capabilities. Any and everything we could ever want to find out is at our very fingertips, including music. You no longer have to wait for a release date so that you can run in a store to pick up your favorite hits. Now all you have to do is get on your phone and hit buy and there you have it, your newest hit to add to your collection.
The change is bittersweet for most Indie Hustlers. On one hand, the ways of promoting music have come with ease but on the other hand, because there are so many avenues who’s to say which is the best? Of course social media plays one of the largest, if not the largest, ways to promote yourself. With the help of friends and fans it only takes one click to share, like, play and comment–ultimately spreading knowledge and in this case, music, like wildfire.
A problem that many Indie music artists have is not having the backing of a well known record label. Many are venturing out on their own just trying to scrape the surface of a messy industry filled with backstabbing friends, shady characters, filthy reputations and contract filled with loopholes of entrapment. The only way for this new aged Indie music Hustler to really be able to have some fulfillment is to be completely faithful to their matrimony with their music.
Music Matr3moni as said before is the relation or marriage between an Indie Music Hustler and their music–ultimately their cultural implementation within their musical realms. When was your Music Matr3moni?
