I want to become a music artist / singer how do I get started?!

Question: I want to become a music artist / singer how do I get started!?
I wanted to become a singer for a long time now I've been singing since i was little in the church choir!. ( I knew that's what everybody says lol but it's true ) It took me a long time to really convince myself to the fact that I can do it!. I just need to know what to do to get started I write my own songs and I don't want to pay some company that says there gonna do this and that and don't do **** but collect my money so what is the safest way to go!?Www@Enter-QA@Com

Okay, I'm going to pretend this question hasn't been asked and answered a million times before here and tell you what you want to know!. It's a long, gruelling battle if you want to make it to the top, so be prepared to shed blood, sweat and tears!. Figuratively!.

First become a sort of celebrity in your local area!. You need to be popular with the people who live near you before you can get out onto the global stage, because they are the ones who will help you!. Take a trip into the center of your town and look at what places may need acts!. Let the owners know that you're available!. Annual festivals such as craft festivals, malls with regular store openings and live music restaurants/bars are places that will always need acts!. Check out what celebrities are touring near you and call up asking to be the opening act - but make sure the celebrities are your style!. It's no use a country singer opening for a heavy metal or hip hop act, because none of the people there will be interested in you!. Talk to local journalism projects about writing about you!.

Open a Myspace, YouTube, Twitter, etc!. account and update it regularly!. Keep in touch with your fans and they will stay loyal!. You're going to keep doing these two things right up until you hit the big time, and if you're grateful to your fans then you may even keep doing the second!.

Get yourself represented by an agent and manager (manager optional)!. They will help you get more and bigger gigs and manage publicity and finance!. Avoid any suspicious and pay-upfront deals and people that don't need your parents' permission if you are under 18 (I am assuming you are)!.

Record a demo CD!. You don't need to hire out a big expensive recording studio to do this - a good quality desktop microphone will do the job just fine!. Start handing out CDs at your "concerts", along with other merchandise!. Don't forget to do this online, too!

Create a promo package which includes your demo, a photo, a bio and a list of the gigs you've played!. Send it to record companies with your and your agent's contact details (ie; email addresses)!. About two months later send a followup email, but DON'T ask if they liked it or not!. also avoid calling the label - never a good idea as it's awkward on both sides!. Remember to check the website of the label beforehand and their demo policy - some labels will not accept unsolicited demos!.

If they like your stuff, they will ask to sign you (but remember to hire an entertainment lawyer before signing anything!) and if not, keep trying at other labels!. Remember to update your online profiles, your demo CDs, your promo package, everything, it will keep you current!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

I would first make a demo/tape most likely a cd hope and pray it falls into the right hands!. If not just try to save it and maybe you can look further into the biz, but make sure you copy right all your stuff!. it would be a shame to hear someone else singing your songs after you did the work and didn't get a dime or a shine!. so make the cd and get a buzz in your neighborhood, radio local talent show, you bound to get discover!. you have to put yourself out there!. market yourself and get ppl to invest in you for studio time and so fourth!.Www@Enter-QA@Com
