Let’s Talk: What makes an artist SUCCESSFUL?

For your Sunday evening, here’s a deep dive into the talks of all things music.

In your humble opinion, what makes a music artist successful? Is it the sheer social media numbers and radio plays? Or is it something far more personal with their musicality and story as a songwriter? It seems to depend on whom you ask, but the varying degrees of success is often weighed up when discussing an artists’ music.

For me, I think it’s whatever makes the artist happy. Playing to a group of ten people in a small dimmed bar, to getting that perfect song out that shows you as the perfect songwriter, I think measures success.

Popularity and successive streams are certainly extras that come after for me. Now, that’s just my opinion to this one, what’s yours?

Putting myself in an artist’s shoes, I would consider myself successful if:
-I influence another artist
-I am respected by the music community
-I have affected a fan in a positive way
-I love what I do, so it doesn’t feel like a job

Yeah, top list for me. If I start to enjoy what I do without any worries of funding anything, that’d be a huge success for me. If that means I have 20 fans, if I am happy in my space, then that is a successful music artist. Thank you for your thoughts!
