Aside from my day job, I'm also pursuing a will-power-driven career for music.
Not only do I write my own songs, but I also compose and produce the beat.
After that, I'll record the vocals, throw it all together, mix and master the song, and voila, we have a finished product.
But wait, there's more! I also use my day job skills to create all album covers and promotional content regarding my music.
Though it's a huge time commitment on something where you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, it's definitely (probably....hopefully...) worth the hustle.
