@mattmichalowskiI I just graduated college and moved out to LA to pursue a career performing music. Any tips for someone starting from scratch in a new city? – Matt, congrats on your recent move to Los Angeles and commitment to being a performing musician. I’m not sure what your ultimate goal is as an artist but my initial advice would be to find a few focus points and put all your energy into that. If one is hoping to have success as a live performer I would recommend a.) building a strong network of fellow musicians and event promoters that can help guide and inspire you to make smart decisions b.) focus on being a confident performer that can give a strong live show and can stand out from the other emerging artists c.) place yourself in the mindset that you are a business and that your career should pan out like a small company looking to grow over time d.) utilize social-networks like Twitter, Eventful and Facebook to create awareness surrounding your new LA shows and recorded material. Best of luck with your new adventure and hopefully we will see you at a show in the near future. – Bob
