5 Ways to Establish Your Career in the Music Industry with King P

Pursuing your passion for music is not easy and can take up a lot of your work. The dynamics of today’s music have successfully opened the doors for many such artists to grow their fan base a million fold early.

To learn about what it’s like to build a career as a Singer we had a conversation with King P aka Phillip Solomon Stewart. King P is a Jamaican songwriter, recording artist, actor, and saxophonist. He started his career in the year 2011 with two cover albums recording on a sax, “Stand” and “I Need You Now”, and it is in 2018 with his song ‘Good Vibes’, he received worldwide recognition.

With his experience in the music industry, he shares some tips

  1. Be Consistent – Most musicians self-sabotage their own music careers by living in a constant state of fear. It’s a tough industry, it does take time and work to get your name out there and build momentum. “It’s a true grind and you may go many years before any huge acknowledgments. So, understand the words of the late great Nipsey Hussle, “it’s a Marathon”! Like anything else, if you want it bad enough then you’ll get better over time with consistency,” said King P.
  2. Network – Your network is your net worth. More often than not, it’s all about who you know in life, and the music industry is no exception. Developing relationships in your local community and setting up small concerts is crucial. You can network in your neighbourhood, city, and school by knowing the different music venues and establishing relationships with other local artists and people involved in music. Soon you will see your network expanding.
  3. Good Content – Being a whole package of singer, actor, saxophone player, and songwriter, King P opened a lot many doors for himself. Cultivating a reputation for being well-rounded, multi-talented performers, many singers can grab more opportunities themselves than singing alone would have afforded them. Being a singer can also involve developing a compelling stage presence, learning dance moves and choreography, and finding ways to connect with the audience. Some singers also develop acting skills and perfect public speaking abilities. Still, others play instruments and compose their music and lyrics.
  4. Good Music – Listen to as much music you can as possible. Being a vocalist Quality time spent on singing is really important. Improvise with different techniques. Develop your voice as an instrument and embrace every opportunity you get. “After all it’s your song that will take you to the top, make sure it really stands out!” he emphasized.
  5. Marketing – There’s a difference between making music as a hobby and making music as a profession. Just like in business, presentation is important. Part of treating your music career as a business involves presenting yourself as an artist to take seriously. King P exclaimed, “Keep a visiting card and have your personal website. Have your social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and Instagram. YouTube is a great platform to upload your performances and rehearsals of all your songs.”
