Actually, We Got This!
This Friday I spent a night in London with members of the online Finish More Music Community! Music producers flew in from all over Europe, the US and even freaking Japan to talk about all things music making!
What can I say… it’s incredibly inspiring and uplifting to get together with a bunch of clones of yourself and conclude that:
1) actually, we all have the same self-doubts as musicians
2) actually, we’re all doing much better than we think
3) actually, we all made a shit ton of progress with our music last year
Actually, WE GOT THIS!
Some people I talked to finished their first 10 tracks after being stuck with 16-bar loops for a decade. Others had several releases on big labels. And yet others went from just singing to releasing their very own self-produced EP… (weehoo, that was me ;))
Pursuing a dream in music isn’t for the faint of heart! Every time you START a new track you feel like you’re the fucking shit and are fiiiiinally making that banger. Then by the time you FINISH it you’re often frustrated as hell and feel like you could have done so, so much better. It’s like you are forever running behind your creative vision, your taste, your real potential.
Welcome to the creative life! And then you start the cycle all over again 😉
If you’re able to share the ups and downs of this process with other people who GET it, it makes all the difference. And being able to do that not just online but in real life with such a kind, smart, talented group of humans was such a boost!
As Keith Mills mentioned on the night, this community is truly something special. I’ve never seen anything like it. Thanks to all of team FMM for creating this incredibly supportive space! I’ve left the evening with tons of inspiration to kick even more butt with my music the coming year.
Here’s to the power of community, and supporting each other in our dreams ❤️
PS: I took only 1,5 photo or something because I was busy chatting away the whole night. But I can’t wait for the official after movie that I’m sure is coming soon 😁
