Astarrboy on How to Be a Rock Star in 2022

A successful music career does not happen overnight. Patience, determination, openness to criticism, and even occasional failure are required to clarify your goals and make them a reality. Today we are meeting with Arman Changulyan, a well-known hip-hop musician who goes by the moniker ASTARRBOY in the music industry, to obtain some insights for all the budding music artists out there. He has around 26,000 Instagram followers. He has over 100,000 streams in over 70 countries after releasing his music on Spotify and Apple Music. His humble upbringing taught him to be grateful for what he had while being humble. ASTARRBOY began releasing songs when he was 19 years old. He has achieved tremendous success as a musician as a result of his songs and big social media presence. His next step will be to create a YouTube profile where he will publish more music videos as well as behind-the-scenes videos of his professional and personal life.

Staying in the loop

The music industry is always evolving. You must stay informed to keep up. This, according to a STARRBOY, is just as vital for music industry workers as it is for musicians. To obtain a position in licensing, product design, or marketing at a company like Spotify or Apple, you’ll need to be able to articulate the shifts fueling industry development. A good artist manager should also be up to date on industry tastes and trends, growing niche markets, and shifting opinions of an artist’s financial viability. Music distribution has drastically altered in recent years, which means that musicians no longer require a deal with a big label to be successful. Maintaining an active presence on sites such as SoundCloud, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook’s Sound Collection will help you market your music and gain a large audience.

Keeping the networking game strong

Developing a career and a personal brand in the music industry necessitates improving your ability to form and sustain mutually beneficial partnerships. “Networking and innovative alliances are important,” you hear over and over. Why? The music industry, like every other people-based enterprise, thrives on it. So, where do you begin? ASTARRBOY suggests taking regular breaks from the studio, or your keyboard or microphone, and engaging in face-to-face encounters with peers, coworkers, and experienced pros. Industry conferences, trade exhibitions, and festivals are ideal environments for enjoyable and organic connections, but they are not your only networking opportunities. Networking is now simpler than ever thanks to social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram. Create a profile and start networking if you aren’t already on these or other sites. Be deliberate and persistent in making new contacts, whether in person or online. Keep track of anyone you meet and why you think you should keep in touch.

Starting early

Being a musician is inextricably related to one’s identity. People who decide to become professional musicians, like ASTARTBOY, usually do so in their teens–much earlier than in other vocations. He began recording songs when he was 14-15 years old! It started as a hobby, but as he began to release songs and acquire fame on social media, he realized it might become a profession. He published his first song when he was 18 years old. ASTARRBOY appreciates constructive criticism of his work. It makes him want to work even harder! This has several ramifications. Having your profession as a vocation may provide tremendous drive.

Learning from mistakes

When something ‘wrong’ happens (for example, poor performance or an injury), it might feel life-threatening. The most crucial foundation for developing a healthy and efficient training method is to ‘know oneself’ (an ancient Greek aphorism). It entails being able to identify your strengths and weaknesses, personality characteristics and inclinations, what gives you health and vitality and what depletes it, what inspires and demotivates you, and whether you require a lot of structure or a flexible schedule, according to ASTARRBOY.

Where does he stand and what’s next?

People he used to listen to are now his colleagues. He feels that in the music industry, contacts are more crucial than in any other industry. Among the artists with whom he has worked are 24Hrs, Vory, Nessly, Guap Tarantino, and others. He enjoys receiving praise from his peers and working on songs with them. In the future he is looking forward to doing some more exciting collaborations, so stay tuned!
