If you want to achieve something, you have to be ready to forge your own path to get there. Life won’t hand you everything you need to reach your dreams. You will have to make decisions and sacrifices and be ready for the challenges ahead. It won’t be easy, but all the hard work will definitely be worth it at the end of the day.
Take as an example the story of the music artist and producer Liam Dineen from an unknown to an up-and-coming independent musician. Unlike most of the big names in the industry, he doesn’t belong to a record label. This means that he didn’t have a company providing him with the support and resources to succeed as a musician. Nonetheless, he was able to reach greater heights because of his determination.
Liam’s journey as an artist started when he was six years old. At that time, he focused all his passion for music on playing the piano. He soon started to learn how to make songs. Music has become an irreplaceable part of who he is.
It wasn’t until 2004 when Liam started to seriously pursue a career in the music industry. As a multi-talented musician, he also plays the drums. He used his knowledge and proficiency to play the drums as a band member for two rap groups based in Birmingham, UK.
Being happy is one thing, but being fulfilled is quite another. Liam didn’t settle for being a back-up drummer. He wanted to take his music further and have as many people as possible want to listen to his songs. However, as someone who isn’t a part of any major record label, he thought success would be challenging. Nonetheless, he didn’t give up and instead forged his own path without the help of a major record label.
To have access to the audience that he needed, to make his music heard, and his name be known, Liam made use of social media. He created pages on numerous platforms and posted engaging content that allowed him to build his fanbase. He now has 8.6 million followers on Facebook. He’s also renowned onTwitter and Instagram, where he now has tens of thousands of followers.
Despite his large audience and following, Liam knows that he shouldn’t be complacent. Having many fans isn’t his end goal, but only a part of his plan. His ultimate dream is to continue releasing songs independently and one day work with the biggest names in the music industry. He’s already had considerable success, but it’s just the beginning. Liam will continue to prove to the world that he has what it takes to reach the top.
