As a beginning artist, it can be tough to jumpstart your career and find your own way and artistic style. Once you start receiving plenty of bookings and building a fanbase, you’re usually ahead of the competition. Your music stirs up an audience and organizers will want to add you to their events’ line up. Initially, you may enjoy the increased interest in you as an artist, but this feeling is often superseded by the stress that accompanies all the arrangements you have to make. There’s nothing strange about that: it takes a lot of planning and effort to be able to organize a great show. It takes even more effort to expand your career and remain in the spotlight without losing sight of your own vision.
