#beginquote# H8 2b the bearer of bad news but it's usually hard & requires a lot of perseverance. For every success in the music world there's a zillion knockbacks. Just look at the charts and you will see it's nothing to do with talent alone! If you are wanting to get into popular music, the easiest way is to get someone in the industry to come to you rather than you doing all the chasing. To do this, get yourself a band. This can be made up of friends, or someone with similar interests contacted via the web. Playing small local venues very cheaply, or even for free, will expose you to an audience which may well feature talent scouts. If you have what it takes to make them some money, they'll try to sign you (and possibly the band)up b4 you've even left the stage! If you don't have bandmates, then you will need a good quality recording of yourself in action, hiring a studio if necessary, this is effectively your resume (CV). For more information I'd suggest writing to someone in music publishing/promotion (find them in yellow pages), enclosing a CD/tape of you singing. You should also considering hiring an agent, but if u do this you may also have to hire a lawyer to look over any contract
B4 YOU SIGN ANYTHING
as there are a lot of unscrupulous agents about. Most publishers/ :D #endquote#
