Hey. I'm Akara Etteh. As an aspiring musician, I want to make a living from my job. I put about £400+ per month into things like studio rent, equipment leasing, admin. Some months I break even, others not so. Over the past few months I've been listening out for advice on how to turning this round. I'm working on as much great music as I can and have been wanting to hold it back until it's perfect. However, the most important thing I've realised is that this journey isn't one that most people go through. You might not know what a musician's life is like, so I'm starting to share this process with YOU. If you come along for the ride, we're both going to find this more interesting, and hopefully you'll get to contribute to some amazing music. So, please sign up to email conversations via my facebook page (below) or at http://eepurl.com/HVIP1 Looking forward to speaking with you. Love to hear any suggestions, comments, questions, critiques, or compliments! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Growing up on a diet of Nigerian gospel, blended with noughties hip-hop and neo-soul, I'm using those influences, combined with my classical training, to create sing-along songs that Oasis would be proud of. Beats that move you, emotive instrumentation, with hooky, pop sensibilities. Poetry smattered with half-rhymes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Currently working with Mickey Lightfoot, JammHot, Rozen Child, and others
