Do we ever give music it’s full due? Throughout the day we have it playing, but how often do we actually listen? What if music didn’t exist? Imagine the implications of going to work and on the drive over only having the options to listen to news, rants, stories or silence without any hope of breaking up the monotony (this is our idea for the next breakout horror film and you can’t have it). Fortunately we have a surplus of musicians and artists to the point that we don’t even know who to choose from when exploring something new, until today. Here’s a hint: her name’s Kirsten Collins and she has a voice we’d kill for.
Although that was more of an answer it’s appropriate. Kirsten’s the solution you’re looking for when trying to escape that playlist you’ve listened to for the hundredth time. That’s not just because of her ability to sing cover songs better than their original counterparts. It’s also owed to the way she embraces music on a spiritual level. Music isn’t just a means to an end for Kirsten. It’s a way to express joy and build upon her purpose in life.
If this is the life you’re craving, Kirsten says that you can break into the music industry by working with people who share a similar mindset. Collaborate and focus foremost on enjoying yourself. As you start to build your audience, devote time to understanding them. Take to heart the feedback that can help propel you to your success. With this in mind, start envisioning yourself more as a brand than a musician. Stay humble and instead of trying to locate someone who can put you on, focus on doing it yourself. You’ll find your way soon enough.
Kirsten continues to wake up each day unaware of how it’ll progress. Life stays a perpetual surprise for her and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s become an adaptable force of nature who’s vibrating with respect for her industry. It’s something to think about when you’re wondering who deserves your listen next time you open up Spotify. Personally, we’re going to be bumping Kirsten Collins on repeat until further notice.
