Monday Motivation from The MIC Mag's Musicians of the Month: Advice for Independent Artists

It's your Weekly Dose of Monday Motivation!

Every month we ask our Musicians of the Month, "What advice do you have for aspiring independent artists?"

They're always sharing such insightful responses, and we thought this week we'd share them with you for a little ~Monday Motivation!~

No compromises!"- planet zuz
