I'm trying to make music a career... I'm struggling to get my music to larger audiences. Any advice and Any fatal mistakes you could think of that alot of newbies in the music industry make?

well, i worked really hard on this essay you should be able to easily google. it's been passed around a bunch for years. also i'm not really the greatest person to ask, i'm not...at the top of the game or whatever, i'm a specialty artist. but that said, i think a good place to start is to master something. become a master of either songwriting, singing, playing an instrument, or having ideas. it's possible to get very rich ignoring this {sell all your rights immediately, be very good looking, have rich parents, get on a "reality" show}, just by being clever, but by doggies the music ends up being shite. if you want to be a master, find a master. study your tail off. i see hundreds and hundreds of bands every year containing members that haven't mastered anything. some do very well financially but i still can't make it through the record. it's going to take at least ten years of full time work [50-60 hours a week] on anything to be very good at all. i'd study art in general as well.
