Check out the new song from Edidion – Birthday
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I am representing Los Angeles, CA. I got my start by just putting out remixes online. A lot of people loved it, I received amazing downloads, and then I started to put out my own material and the rest is history.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
My latest single titled “Birthday” is what I’d like to call a throwback club banger, it has a early 2000s bounce and swag to it. It’s a feel good record produced by “RaCharmMusic” which talks about feeling your best!Iit doesn’t even have to be your birthday but you live life like it is! It’s all metaphorical. “Birthday” went to no.1 on the pop charts on OurStage.com and it’s probably the most successful song I’ve recorded; it’s done well. I’m grateful to the world for that.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The hardest challenge for me personally is keeping the fire burning. I have an undying love for music and that will never change, but when you face rejection and constant setbacks it’s so easy to put oneself down and not work as hard. It’s a challenge to stay motivated even when things don’t necessarily go your way in this business or not at the pace you desire.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
I was offered an amazing opportunity out here in L.A, but I was in another state at the time and I was not going to be back in time for the opportunity I was offered. I was crushed because it felt like I was always in the wrong place at the right time; if that makes any sense. I’d feel like something always stood in the way of my goals. I bounced back from that by support from my friends, family, and my faith.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
In the unsigned world to be specific, some artists need to be careful when submitting their songs and doing business deals online. A lot of people view unsigned artists as prey because we’re all hungry, young, and looking for that golden opportunity. I have seen cases where some artists would innocently send money and information to people and end up getting scammed. If I could advise all the artists I would tell them to research the company or person before doing business with them and if your gut feeling tells you it’s a bad idea, it’s probably a bad idea.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
My suggestions for other artists would be to remain true to yourself, connect with your fans at all times, copyright your music, stay focused on the goal, and continue to put out great music
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Well, I have an official website where I post all my links, songs, photos, and news. I also have a Facebook music page and a twitter. I like promoting my music on Facebook and YouTube mostly, I get raw feedback and I can connect with my fans/supporters that way.
