Being an independent artist has never provided more opportunities, nor has it ever been more competitive than it is right now. With so many platforms to share your music on, artists are now more accessible than at any other point in history
Being an independent artist shares a lot of qualities with being an entrepreneur. You are your own brand, you have to market and promote yourself constantly, and you are going to work long hours seven days a week.
When it comes to being an independent artist, the whole name of the game is getting your music in front of as many fans/potential fans as possible. For artists all around the world, they quickly learn that the world of distribution is both tough and costly.
