Aspiring and emerging artists need to be aware that they share a common goal with legions of hopefuls, all hurling themselves at the same venues, media spots, labels and audiences. The common mistake is thinking all these people are in competition. They are not. This isn’t gladiator school. Your peers are your potential co-conspirators. No artist can exist in a vacuum; inspiration simply does not survive in such an environment.
Listen to what others are creating. Get to know them. Help one another, recommend one another and share contacts. Collaborate! If you get a break, share that progress and take someone with you. And don’t stop at performers. Promoters emerge the same way artists do. So do labels and magazines and radio shows and websites.
Too many artists pitch themselves to the establishment, to the existing success stories, hoping for a short cut. That kind of ambition is as transparent as it is boring and often the best you can hope for is becoming a chapter in someone else’s story.
Find the people who have recently started out. These people are trying to build something they are passionate about and they need help just like you do.
On the first day of spring, one year ago today, we (The Lunchroom) released Khari Mateen’s debut album, “Wait For Sunrise”.
Our very small team behind this project was very proud when Soul Train named “Wait For Sunrise” one of 2012’s best releases (the only independently released album recognized).
We thank all those that have listened, enjoyed, and participated in this project. On this one year anniversary we to say thank you and reaffirm our mission to always do better, learn from our mistakes, inspire, and empower ourselves and our peers to do our best. more

ASAP Rocky’s album, “Long.Live.ASAP”, led by a single with an unprintable title, sold 139,000 copies in its opening week. Those sales gave it a healthy lead over this week’s No. 2 album, which is also new but couldn’t be more different: “Kidz Bop 23” (Razor & Tie), the latest in a popular compilation series that has toddler-friendly versions of pop hits, like Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” It sold 78,000 copies.
The most interesting contest this week, though, is on the singles chart. “Thrift Shop,” by the independent rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, is the most-downloaded track, with 341,000 downloads, and the song also rises one spot to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, which in addition to sales also incorporates radio airplay and online streaming. Close behind, though, is Justin Timberlake’s comeback song, “Suit & Tie,” which sold 315,000 in its first week out and rocketed 80 spots to No. 4 on the Hot 100. (The quirks of Bllboard’s chart rules are partly responsible for that big leap. The song was released just after midnight on Jan. 14, too late for its early sales to count, but not too late to allow two days of airplay.)
