Check out the new song from Michal Ortiz (Producer) – Black Everything
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
Originally born on the west side in California, but moved at a young age to Pennsylvania. Lived in Orlando for 2 years while going to school at FullSail University. It was the biggest test of my life leaving everything I knew back home for a new start in Orlando, I met a lot of great people down there that helped my develop into the man I’ve become. Shout outs to my boys Mac, Jerry, Jae Coop, Will, and Marcus! Now living out in Philadelphia and will be staying here for the next couple years.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
This is just one of my newer beats I’ve created, it’s still available exclusively and leasing. For inquires on exclusives and leasing email MichalOrtizBooking@gmail.com.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Just the overall grind of trying to live off of music. As a producer you really have to go to out and market yourself as a brand so artists recognize you. Once you get over the challenge of creating your social network of artists then the money will really be coming in but you have to build network first or the money will just be here and there.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Not having the money to provide for my own studio equipment. That was one of the reasons I felt going to FullSail University would really help out. In the long-run it made me better as a Producer/Engineer/Musician, I had to learn to work with what I had and now I feel comfortable in any studio situation.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists just need to respect the business, people do not just become famous for no reason, there is a lot of dedication and hard work behind the lifestyle. Make sure you get your copyrights as well!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Just be patient and keep grinding! Everything pays off with time, just be ready when it’s your turn.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Any way possible Facebook, twitter, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, etc.. The internet is music’s biggest tool for kick starting careers.
