What Outer Song is about
Outer Song is the new up and coming platform for unsigned talent in the music industry that want to get started in creating relationships and opportunities within the industry. The music industry can be intimidating when it comes to getting your foot in the door as a creative. Whether you are in an entertainment city like Nashville, New York, or LA or not, with social media, this can be daunting seeing what you may be up against. Social media has also created the opportunity to very quickly become successful while also very quickly fading back into the abyss of talent that can be found throughout the internet.
For industry professionals, this is a different kind of daunting task when it comes to being introduced to new talent. While one may stumble across the next best thing every once of a while, many times, when it comes to allotting time to scouting new talent, social media can become too saturated to do this effectively.
For both parties, this process of opportunity can be seen as luck for many. Many describe luck as the meeting of two puzzle pieces: timing and preparation. Luck can be great until you have to figure out how to sustain it into the long-term. In the music industry, luck sometimes isn’t so lucky. Once luck strikes, you have to figure out how exactly to translate that luck into continued growth and loyalty.
The answer to creating this long-term success: hard work. While that still is not the end-all-cure-all, it certainly rings true in any endeavor. While the luck of that hard work being recognized has to still be present, hard work can still create a sense of worth and confidence in any creative in this industry. Being confident in your ability to push for what you want will always get you somewhere even if it is not the destination you may have had in mind.
Outer Song with the Creative
