The Forgotten Artist

LOS ANGELES, CA--Live performances build the foundation for a promising career in the music industry. Artists may start their rise to stardom at a place like the Promenade in Santa Monica, or at a warehouse event in Downtown, Los Angeles. November is usually full of festive events. Many artists come to these events with a competitive focus. They know that a good performance can lead to a life-changing opportunity. 

"When you get the opportunity to perform you have to give it your best. No matter how big, or small the venue is. There's always room to gain extra fans. There's always room for growth," says Hashim.

Many musicians have a hard time breaking into the music industry. But performing the right shows can make that distant dream a reality.  Most artists know their presence on stage can get them the exposure that they are looking for. 

"Performing is definitely important for both upcoming and established artists. It's a chance to actively gain new fans," says Nate Park.
