The Fame Game

I was asked this today in an email from a fan:

"Do you ever wonder why you're not famous already???"

This was my reply:

"I only started on this trail last October and since then have gradually been writing and rehearsing my songs to totally get my act together, so to speak. Fame? I don't chase fame, I chase my passion and I love my music regardless, because it means something to me. People can spend $millions on promoting themselves and still not achieve 'fame'. When I am totally ready I will likely send out to A&R companies and try and set up some live dates and after that it is all out of my hands. I am not an X-Factor or Big Brother wannabe, so 'fame' is not my game, but my objective is to get my music heard and liked by as many people as I can and if that = fame, then so be it :) If you can help me with that by sharing my music and 'liking' me in Facebook etc and telling all your friends then that is a small and very welcomed help and start for me."

I hope that answers anybody else's questions too or those who may think this is a passing phase for me or I'm totally off my trolley! It may have started out as a project, but in my own mind I loved my songs and knew I was falling in love again with my music and finding my real centre again. Since then I am improving my work and it's all coming back to me now.

    @harrison Thanks and sorry for the delay, my website was being revamped!! Much as I would like to get my music heard by as many people as possible, i'm not sure X-Factor is the best platform for me. I am not worried in the least about performing in front of millions of viewers but it's all the drama that goes with it that would spoil the experience for me, and having to compete in such a way against friends and people who would be equally if not more talented than I am. It all seems too manufactured even though technically they are usually better singers than I think I am. If I can already be told apart from them then maybe I should stick to believing in that, and hope I will make my own way through being myself and hope that Mr Cowell will find me in his own time and not change me too much. :)
