In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Stephen Bishop, a musician and songwriter, offers advice to songwriters wanting to enter the music industry. Socializing, co-writing, writing in different styles, and becoming affiliated with either BMI or ASCAP are great ways to try to break in. He empathizes with aspiring songwriters because its tougher now than it’s ever been for people to hear your music. However, Bishop also points out that there are different vehicles, such as MySpace and CD Baby, that make being heard a bit easier. He also explains the importance of living where the action is. Also in this segment, Bishop shares his feelings on career choice and how his career took him places that he was not always prepared to go.
