Making a Career out of Singing
I have been thinking about the question "If my career and work life were ideal, what would they look like?"
The answer is that I would be touring while making money doing it. Now that's a dream that I'm sure many people have, but very few can actually do.
I think if you want something bad enough, it can be done. In the case of my singing, it is something that I'm so passionate about that I can foresee success coming from it. But it seems unlikely.
What I need to do is find a band who wants the same thing I do, and who have the necessary talent to succeed. It was recommended to me that I write and record a professional album. So this is exactly what I'm going to do. I know a producer in California who will do this with me. He is a professional. Once I get the songs written I will go out there and record them. He will get some big name musicians to play on it. Then I hope to get signed by a record label.
Is this a good plan or should I do something else?
