2021 is right around the corner, and we’re sharing everything you need to do to make the next year your best yet.

2020 has been an incredible year. Nothing has gone as planned, but artists found a way to adapt. No touring due to COVID? Livestreams. The label won’t release the record? Drop singles and continue to write. Can’t afford to record? Keep writing, keep demoing, and continue developing your voice.

If we learned anything this year, it’s that nothing can stop musicians from pursuing their craft. The world tried incredibly hard to break the spirit of creatives everywhere over the last twelve months, and the vast majority stood their ground. 2021 may try even harder, but music and the people who make it are not going anywhere.

In this episode of Music Biz, host James Shotwell discusses what artists can do to succeed in 2021. He talks about the simple things every musician should do annually, but he also considers the bigger picture. We cannot go back to the way we did business and chased dreams before 2020. We are living in a new world, and with it comes new ways of building an audience. Those who embrace the now will get ahead, but how do you do that? We’ll let James explain.
