Defining yourself as an artist

What makes you YOU?
What do artists base themselves on?

Well, I learned something new today. You can spend years trying to figure this out. For the most part, music is based on feelings and human emotions. There's nothing wrong with doing anything and everything because we feel anything and everything at some point in our lives but, you can't be a country star and merge over to heavy metal. Makes no sense.  Not that you should categorize yourself. You are an artist after all.  Focus on a few simple things:

1. Accepting your capabilities
2. Concentrating on a particular feeling or small range of emotions (when people feel a certain way, they want to listen to something they can relate to. And when they feel that way, they think of you. Deal?)
3. Build on the brand of who you are. What does that emotion sell? How does it make people feel when they see your brand or product?

 This is not for everyone. Not everyone wants the same thing nor are they aiming for the same thing. It's up to you to find yourself. As for me, I'm one step closer today than I was yesterday. Getting closer gives a euphoric sense of satisfaction. Just keep going.

 And don't forget to learn sumpin'.
