1. A good musician is a humble musician.
-You should always know that there is someone else better than you, but you should always know in the back of your head that you're the shit because what is a band with out confidence.
2. Never forget where you've come from.
-Never forget about your friends, family, and all of the people that will help you along the way. It'll be normal if you encounter people in your music career that creep you out, but most of the time, those are the people that will always love your music from day one.
3. Keep it real!
-Make sure that the music you put out there is the music you want people to hear. What is the message? People always enjoy music to the fullest when they can hear something amazing, yet feel the good vibrations coming from within.
4. Public eye
-Haters exist in every form and I'm sure we all know that. Don't take everything to heart because sometimes you'll find yourself in a weird musical enviornment that your band should have never been in. It's all good homie. Just relax and do ya thing, because people will respect you for doing what you do.
5. The last thing is patience....that thing they call a virtue
-Never be to quick to jump at anything that comes your way because you could just sign yourself into a contract you never wanted. Take time to think about what you want to do as a musician and as a person who also has a normal life. Know what it is you want and need and no one can screw you over.
