The music industry is brutally competitive, and it takes a lot to build an audience and cement your spot in the industry. It is even more challenging when you work in an understated genre as you need so much more to promote your music and grow your name. However, this has not stopped celebrated music producer Carlton E Bynum II from taking over the music industry. He has defied all odds to reach the top, and his journey is now a source of inspiration to many in the field.
According to Carlton, he came to learn about montage music at an early age. He explains that growing up, he loved listening to different music genres and would also watch YouTube videos, which led him to discover montage.
As the number of YouTube content creators grows, the market for montage sounds is also expanding, exposing the many gaps in the industry. Getting started in the music scene, Carlton notes that one of his goals was to help fill these gaps and provide his audience with great music they could use in their videos.
However, his journey to attaining this goal has not been easy. Before he shot into the limelight, Carlton was just a young dreamer struggling to build his name in the music industry. He explains that he had no money and had to walk to Mcdonald’s every day to use their Wi-Fi as he couldn’t pay for internet services at home.
His laptop was also broken and old, which was a challenge as some tools did not function, and he had a difficult time creating sounds. Even so, Carlton didn’t give up on his dream of becoming a top music producer. He used what was available at the time, and through hard work and consistency, others in the industry started to take note of him.
He began getting offers from other artists and music producers, and within a short period, Carlton was a popular name in the industry. Carlton has produced several singles, including “The Beat Drops.” He has also written and covered other musicians, including Bosnian artists SHIYE and Sam Lex.
He says, through his music, he wants to inspire others in the industry as he shows everyone that nothing is too hard to attain. “Before reaching our goals, there are many challenges that we have to deal with,” says Carlton. “However, you shouldn’t let those obstacles stop you from fulfilling your dreams.”
By sharing his story, he encourages people to fight for their dreams as he shows everyone that it is possible to attain success. Carlton has built his empire from the ground up, and he is a well-known music producer and marketer, having been featured in multiple online publications, including the New York Times.
His advice to others in the industry is to believe in their ideas and work towards achieving them. “Critics will always be present,” says Carlton, “but you should never let their opinions stop you from attaining what you want.” He emphasizes the importance of not letting past situations define your future.
