My place of birth was Latvia, Riga. For the last 2 years i’m a permanent resident in UK, living in London. The people around suburb , where i live, mostly like rock music, old classics, like Queen, UB40. The great place to go in London is a Hampton Court, the King’s Palace, which is a tour in a history for all day. I definitely suggest to visit it for everyone, once they got in UK.
I think that the World Music business is very different, there are so many unknown talents in each country of the world. Music has no borders and what’s most important thing it has no limits. You can perform, influence others, be proud that people are heard, respect your hard work.
The pros are that with a help of social networks, people can find you, help you to promote your music, think with one mind with you. so that the audience would describe it as a hit.
The cons is that it is hard to start being in music business, you need to have understanding of how to record the sounds and put the right words, so that the audience would describe it as a hit. I think it’s even more psychologically, this is where you think not only about yourself.
I would love to get 5 minutes alone with rapper Jay-Z….
I admire his strength, time planning, how he unites the nation with his songs.
