[Artist Development] Presentation
[ You rarely have a second chance to make a first impression]
As upcoming artists a lot of work goes into putting a project together. Often times you get worn on a project and anxious to get the material out. You must keep in mind that your first impression is always the most critical.
That being said, If you are doing shows and your bringing your show disc it is a good idea to have a professional looking project to hand the DJ. Although the content is the most important, the cover gets the attention. treat it as law.
Every new performance should be treated as new opportunity to make more good first impressions. Your stage performance should compliment the song you are performing. You should show up early for sound checks to minimize problems when time comes to go on stage.
