Emerging talent - go for it. If you love something and are willing to work hard and learn the ropes, you can do anything. I think the best way to gain courage is to listen to the stories of artists who went before you, who overcame their own doubts and struggles. Hearing that getting to where you want can take time and that it’s not always a straight path to get there is really encouraging. We usually only see people’s success and their ‘end product’ rather than their journey, but there are plenty of podcasts and interviews available that tell of a bigger story. One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received is to never compare your beginning with someone else’s middle. You’re not where they are, yet, and that’s fine. If someone else can get to where they want to be, why not you?

Be authentic and stay true to who you are. Be professional. Be prepared to work harder than you ever have for little or no reward. Be prepared for rejection, criticism and to have your dreams trampled on. Most of all, enjoy it. Do it because you love it, not because you love the idea of the lifestyle it may bring.

Playing music is all about having fun and creating the most enjoyable atmosphere. I think people (myself included) from time to time put so much pressure on a certain kind of set and sound we forget why we all started spinning records, going out with our mates and working that extra shift to pay for that ticket to see that DJ. To have fun and enjoy life!

The only fear you should have is if you don’t at least try you will miss out. Things aren’t always going to be easy however set some goals and keep pursuing your dreams. Oh and one big one – surround yourself with good people along the way because they make the ride worthwhile.
