Daily Habits | What Artists Should Be Doing Daily

Sep 10, 2021

Focusing on music full-time takes a lot of effort, work, and dedication. Most of us are on an independent grind and do not have a team of dedicated resources to help us along the way. This forces us to have to wear many different hats throughout our career.

Things You Should Do Daily

  • Make and release music - This is where it all starts. Without great music, nothing else works. Practice your craft daily.
  • Create content and be active on social media - It's FREE and it's the most powerful tool that we have. If you're not using it as much as you possibly can, you're putting yourself at a severe handicap in an already difficult industry.
  • Reply to comments, DMs, and emails - Do this during your other daily activities like riding in an Uber, watching TV, or any other thoughtless activity. Use the time you're not being creative to engage with your potential fans.
  • Network at local music events - Or travel to the nearest place hosting music events if you don't live in an area that has any locally. Go to conferences, workshops, and other events. It's the perfect place for solid networking and connecting with other people in the music industry.
  • Network at local music studios - Again, travel if your city or town doesn't have any music studios. You never know when a big name artist or producer might be there at the same time you are.
  • Collaborate with other artists - This will help you get out of your comfort zone. Not only does it create opportunities but it also exposes you to that artist's fan base.
  • Learn the music business - In order to play the game, you have to learn the rules. Talent alone won't help you succeed. A lot of talent with zero knowledge is the perfect target for shady people in the music business. Utilize Google and YouTube to learn something new everyday. This will help you become well-rounded and less vulnerable to being taken advantage of.


Don't sit on your ass expecting success to come to you. You have to put in the time and work to build this thing up from nothing. There is always something you can do everyday to move one step closer to your goals.
