My road in life took a while to figure out.
I put myself in front of an audience, doing talent shows, choir, and musical theatre.
Picked up guitar and wrote my first song.
Met a famous singer through a mutual friend and she pushed me to make a demo to send to her.
Made my first demo which got me signed to her and I flew out to Los Angeles to work with her.
Moved to Los Angeles and worked endlessly until I got signed a few years later to Sony Japan.
Worked for three years and released six albums with Sony Japan until my contract ended.
I decided to stop being a solo artist and auditioned for a band that a friend told me about.
We started recording the next week and have been on tour for a year straight now with amazing bands.

I'm a singer in a band called Stars In Stereo.

Day to Day
When we are on the road, it's wake up, catch up on our social media pages, radio visit or interview, do a work out, sound check, play a show, then spend the rest of the night at the merch booth trying to meet as many new fans as possible. Everyday is different when you are traveling but that's the most typical day. When we have days off, we are writing and recording from morning until all night, often into the next morning.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for middle school students
The younger you start learning your craft, the better off you are. You can start simple with talent shows or choir, then try voice lessons or open mics. I picked up a guitar and wrote my first song when I was 10 and haven't stopped writing since. The more you write and practice, the better you will be, as with anything in life. The more you put yourself in front of an audience, the quicker you will become a better performer.
My career is not related to what I studied. I'd recommend this path instead:
The Noise I Shed
From Society in General:
"You should stop being so shy. You should go to college. You should stop being so awkward. You should look prettier. You should act cooler."
