Music is a social art form, collaboration is king.
Do you find yourself wondering why so many of the songs in the charts are collaborations? The answer is a simple one: Collaborations = Exposure.
Although not every artist can make it to Number 1 with collaborations, they should still realise the potential that collaboration opportunities hold for people in today’s music industry.
Collaborating with people who have successfully built up their fan base and have status within the industry is a perfect way of gaining exposure for your own work.
We’ve all heard the expression, “it’s all about who you know”, and in most cases that is true. The more you collaborate with new people, the bigger your network of professionals becomes and in turn the number of potential opportunities increases. Word of mouth is a very powerful thing and if you build up a good reputation within your field of expertise, then you will start to see further opportunities come your way.
Collaboration is a perfect excuse to try out your music or skills in a different genre.
The real key is to get involved. The industry is expanding and evolving at a fast pace and it is more accessible now than it ever has been. The possibilities for collaborations are endless and span genres, artists, roles in the industry, countries and more. So get collaborating and start expanding your network.
