Disillusioned musicians abound, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Recognition metrics like chart position and social stats can kill the joy in your creative life and lead to discouragement and artistic paralysis. Yet each of us has our own unique vision of where our art can take us, one that relies on very different measures and victories. In this conversation, goth indie-pop songwriter (and Editor of CD Baby’s DIY Musician Blog) Chris Robley and Disc Makers CEO Tony Van Veen explore how an ambitious DIY artist today can find creative freedom, engagement, and enjoyment on their own terms, by discovering their personal definition of success.
