We have been asked multiple times what we think a band needs to do to be successful and in our humble opinion the two most important things must be having good songs and being hard workers. You want to try to write the best songs you can that your target audience will be able to easily identify with. This may sound easy but it is actually extremely difficult. If you have great songs that is definitely a huge plus but that will only get you so far. Working hard is the key. That means practicing a lot,promoting your brand,supporting your local music scene and constantly making in roads with different people in the music industry. The music business seems to work very slowly so don't get discouraged if you don't sign a record deal after your first year of being a band. Keep the passion alive and do it because you love it and good things will happen.
