Soul music is not just like any other, it needs a lot of preparation and creativity to ensure that the sound intonation are able to capture the feelings and mood of the audience. A lot of things are required to make soul music a choice to the people. With the invention of new recording instruments, people are not struggling any longer because their voices can be twisted to become how they are desired to be. But that is not the solution because artistes who twist their voices using machines are normally boring on stage. Below are the things that one should do to become a true Legend.
Write your own music.
Legends are not born, they are made. You don’t have to sit down for someone to write lyrics for you. Start by writing short poems, recite them daily and you will see yourself going somewhere. People who have their music written by other people are normal singers, they have no knowledge of how to manage themselves in case that writer disappears. Learn how to compose lyrics and arrange them perfectly. This way, you can even be writer and a musician at the same time which is a very perfect thing.
Sing and record yourself always.
Once you have your lines, train your voice now. Step by step, recite and repeat with an intention to make your voice better every now and then. Voices are always made from practice. You cannot have a perfect voice by singing for one day. It takes practice and notice where you are going wrong and correct yourself. Don’t be afraid of your voice and give up, with time it will get better. It just a matter of the vocal cords adapting to the new intonations and you will be okay to go.
Sing the music of other musicians to people.
We all have our own role models when it comes to everything in life. People become who they are through following the footsteps of their role models. As a singer, you can choose one music from any artiste and sing it to your friends. That way you will get feedback. If they start saying that you are singing like so and so, then you have to know that you are going somewhere as far as music career is concerned. You can go on to practice your music, in your own style and ensure that you perfect your skills throughout. This is the best thing about music, the more practice you make the more expert you become and therefore the journey is long. Step after step, accepting the mistakes you make and try to remove them.
Now people have said you are okay.
That is the beginning of having fans, don’t say it’s a small number. It is time to move to the studios now. Carry your music on your head not on papers. Meet the producer and talk to him or her. Obviously, they are going to tell you to sing on a freestyle mood and they will have to rate your voice. Through this one would be able to ensure that he or she makes the singing perfect and it is only through that singing a lone and recording yourself that can help you in this scenario. Producers cannot let talents go so definitely they will make a beat for you. Through that music you have and the beat, the song is going to be produced and you will now be a public artiste but with no fans.
