    Sign a label and make it big. Though this is not a sure shot if you ask me. There are still a lot of things you have to go through before raking in the money like a star.

    I would say signing to a big label is the exact opposite of what you should do. Forge your own career through sites like aurovine and keep what you earn.

    What a daft response, it like kids today when asked "what do you want ti be when you grow up?" and answering "Famous".

    There are many ways to make a living as an artist or musician, that does not mean "Making it Big". If you are lucky enough to be able to live on what you earn as a professional musician you are truly blessed.

    If you want to make a living as a musician try Pledge Music to launch your album. That way you own the album once it is made, you can then go in search of a label

    If you have a genuine talent and you have complete passion and commitment to what you do then I believe you can make it on your own. Do what you do, find and target a niche in the music market, keep your fans happy, don't be afraid to release your best material for free, keep writing, etc. I wouldn't say it is as hard as people make out...But you actually do need a talent and you do need to spend time building a strong fan base.

    Bloody hard work - that's how you do it.

    Too many people these days think that you can just create a handful of songs, wait for a label to here it then live in a crib from MTV.

    I'm not a pro (I'm a hobbyist) but I have a lot of friend who are, and they live off of their music because they work bloody hard at it, day in day out.

    People always talk about 'proper jobs' and suchlike, but my pro musician friends (the successful ones anyway) are some of the hardest working people I know.
