If your music is great, you will have fans, not because you have spent time chatting on social media.
Focus on your music and not technology.
I always knew I'd be in music in some sort of capacity. I didn't know if I'd be successful at it, but I knew I'd be doing something in it. Maybe get a job in a record store. Maybe even play in a band. I never got into this to be a star.
I only write music for myself, I don't try and appeal to anyone else.
I'm not afraid of being thought of as someone who is associated with film music. Why not? If it's a good song, what does it matter?
Music became my focus. At 13, I was jamming with my mates. At 15, I was playing clubs.
Music is just such... it's not therapy, but it's a release, it's a joy, it's a pleasure. And it's a job - which is weird, because I don't think of it as a job.
