What Advice do you have for fellow artists?

After two years of scaling through some hurdles in the music industry, Meral has some advice for anyone out there who might be taking a similar journey. 

"My advice to other musicians would be to walk away temporarily from projects that you just can’t seem to finish and come back to them later." 

"Also  to keep going, even if you doubt yourself. We are often our own worst critics so just keep expressing yourself."

Eva Waagen said some artists might assume the industry to be quite an easy one, but from her experience it isn't..she stated plainly that  artists should be  ready to put in much effort if they want to progress and make it big  in the music industry.

What are your challenges so far in the music industry?

"My biggest challenges are definitely my own self doubt/criticisms."

Eva explained how her anxiety and partial fear of not performing efficiently have always gotten the better of her especially when collaborating with other artists.

" Overcoming your fears is the most empowering thing there is. I’m still training to do my first performance so I haven’t overcome that fear yet but I’m planning on it!"
