Help Musicians is an independent UK charity created with the aim of providing support in times of need but also in times of opportunity, so every musician has what they need to reach their goals. We advise you take a look at their website to see what they are currently offering due to the pandemic and in general, as we believe some of you could find very beneficial programmes to get back on your feet now that the restrictions have been softened.
Millicent has gone above and beyond to provide this community and the general public with the best insights and resources to achieve success in the music industry. One of her efforts is the free booklet "Revealed: 25 Secrets Of The Successful Gigging Musician, Singer, Rapper & Spoken Word Artiste", a concise guide full of valuable advise and key points that every aspiring artist in the world of music should know.
Life happens: you think you have everything under control and then you receive an atrociously high and unexpected bill, or your relative falls ill, or a pipe in your house breaks and soaks your amps in water. You start running to fix whatever happened, and then turn to realize you have not made any post in a week. Sounds familiar? Well, in this episode, Millicent shares her own experience to help you realize such a thing is not the end of the world or your career.
