Since it’s the new year, why not talk about music goals for the year?
I thought this post could be a spot where people could comment their goals for the year as a starting point for their actions going forward. I think people expressing themselves publicly may get themselves to act more instead of just wishing. I could be totally wrong, but nonetheless, it may inspire others.
Since I’m asking you to let out your goals, it’s only fair that I put out my music goals. That’s right, I’m a closet singer-songwriter who is just inching his way out into the world. I’d like to see myself record at least 3 3ps this year, put out at least 12-20 YouTube/Videos, and play at least 5 shows (hey, I’m inching my way out, so give a brother a break) by December 30, 2010.
Besides my own personal music goals, I want to see DIYgigs.com become a really great resource for bands by the end of 2010. I want to see 100’s if not thousands of venues across the world be listed and rated. I want to see bands email us saying that DIYgigs.com helped them book their tour. I want to have real impact on the lives of artists trying to make a go of things on their own.[vimeo=http://www.vimeo.com/6514570]
Chris, I’ll put a link to something I record. I’ll hesitate I’m sure, but I’ll do it.
Obviously, my music goal for 2010 is:
to write, record, and release 26 songs in 52 weeks.
I’m making that my primary goal.
As for the 3P’s, I actually released my debut one yesterday! Like Neil, I also made the songs available for free on our website. It’s nice to see the plays amount slowly climb up.
and when you guys record something new…send me something.
I’ve got 4 CD’s worth of material with 4 different bands itching to get out. Also, I’d like to play 6 solo shows, do 4 drum clinics, and play a live release party for each of the 4 releases.
It’s gonna be a BIG year!
My goal is to tour 3 more times this year hitting bigger centers and bigger shows each time out, to use youtube to gain more fans, and to explore music and develop the ArmsUp sound.
Being a former working musician, recovering from disability, one of my main goals is to get back into the public eye. I plan to hit several Houston area industry mixers and other music related events. I also want to write & record and possibly play live with some of the other musicians I have discovered through social networking.
I’m gonna write, record and release a new song within each month in 2010. I already have a 3p or two available for free at oxtoby.bandcamp.com.
Goals for my music career: Get NEXT on at least one other radio station. Find a new home for my NEXT charity concert series.
Also a random goal is give a $100 tip to someone for something simple like a beer, a coffee or a candy bar.
