Networking is an opportunity for you to establish connections within the music industry by utilizing the resources available to you. These relationships should be as much of a benefit to you as they are for those you're meeting. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, networking has evolved and adapted to fit a more virtual model -- but networking is still alive and well. While the traditional tips for creating relationships may not fit this current "norm", many still resonate.

"I feel that a lot more emotions can be portrayed with just sounds because in the end it is up to the listener to decide what they feel when they listen. Even if I make a song with the goal of it being happy, someone else can think the opposite. So for me I just want my listeners to feel anything they think fits and to maybe help them in a time of need to give some sort of comfort in their life."

These days, it's becoming less common for independent songwriters and artists to sign big traditional publishing deals. These deals can be difficult to come by, and also often require a minimum delivery requirement - meaning a certain number of songs, found acceptable by the publisher, that must be written and delivered during the term. Don't fret — There is an option that is absolutely worth looking into further: Self-publishing your own music! https://songtr.st/34gfLLw
