Getting inspired by Girl

1 In Music: What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

I like to make other forms of art like paintings. I also make videos with my friends of us doing whatever dumb s*** we feel like

[Success for me is…] Being happy with your art

Perfect your craft and learn to love what you make before you release anything.

You don’t want to show someone your music and then think to yourself “wow they probably think this s***”
