Avoid two pitfalls most artists never overcome

John Stringer performing with State of ManThey key to becoming a better singer/songwriter, performing artist is GROWTH.
Grow for the better in every area you can.

Here are two quick resources I became an affiliate of because they helped me overcome two very common artist pitfalls – not growing as a songwriter and not growing as a singer:

1. The Songwriting Genius Within You
Simply put, one of the best writing resources I’ve found that goes beyond simple song structure and a lot of the basic tips you find in other songwriting courses.  This is about little-known techniques that help you tap into true Genius and the science behind it.   You also get a great discount from the author of this remarkable resource by clicking here.

2. Singing Success
Vocal coach to the stars (Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Haley Williams  & more)  and creator of Singing Success, an amazingly effective vocal training program you can download online, Brett Manning will help you improve your voice and gain a full octave – Guaranteed!  I’ve written about this resource many times because I use it and it works.  Click here to see for yourself.

Enjoy!

Its finally here!

Not something you see every day!

New Indie Artists Plan for Live show CD reporting to Soundscan

Quick update on IndieHitMaker.com. We launched a brand new “Pay Per Report” pricing plan for independent touring artists that allows them to sign up for Venue Sales Reporting (live show CD Sales reporting) to Soundscan for only $33 a year and $5 per report. Its great for artist with only a few shows lined up each month but they want to ensure they are reporting their sales.

Of course, for busier artists, we still have the monthly and annual plans (greatest overall savings).

One of the Pay Offs I enjoy in Music

One of the many payoffs music has brought to my life (one of the reason I have a passion for music) is the positive impact it can have on peoples lives.

With that in mind, I’m grateful to share with you the SUCCESS State of Man’s music is achieving:

What do Haley Williams, Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and John Stringer all have in common?

Question: What do Haley Williams, Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and John Stringer all have in common?

The Answer: We all have the same vocal coach Singing Success!

But hopefully, I pay a lot less than they do!

This video of Haley Williams (Paramore) tells you about her experience with the program:

I really like Haley Williams’ voice and if you caught the episode of Sophie’s Lounge on Sophie 103’s website (HERE) featuring State of Man’s live acoustic performance and interview, then you probably heard me doing one of the vocal warm up techniques she uses.

Though the techniques sound funny, they are the same ones not only Haley and I use, but plenty of other artists including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Miley Cyrus use them as well. thanks to the critically acclaimed vocal methods found in the  Singing Success program by Brett Manning.   The program costs $199 and it is well worth it.

I posted a review on the  Singing Success program before (here) but wanted to make sure anyone serious about becoming a great singer checks it out.  The before and after videos on the site will amaze you, and once you actually use it, you’ll understand exactly why the program is called Singing Success!

Enjoy!
