"What's the best way you've found to attract fans?" Savannah Lynne has been navigating the independent artist world for the last 10 years. We sat down with her to learn more about her journey as a musician.
I’ve been in the music industry for roughly 10 years but I’ve been singing my whole life. When I was younger, I would sing in school plays and recitals. After learning to play guitar and writing my own music, I eventually released two self recorded albums and started touring the US. Today, I am fortunate enough to be signed to Arrival Music distributed by Cinq Music and released my first single with them, called, “Just Getting Good”.
I grew up listening to Country music so naturally that’s what I play most. My music has changed over the years, just as I have. I write music as I experience things so, for lack of a better term, its grown up (laughs). What’s been the most enjoyable aspect of being a musician?
Definitely getting to see my fans’ reaction to the music I release and perform. The endless and unconditional support I get from the Lynnear Movement is what inspires me to keep writing.
Stageit shows and Music sales have been the biggest stream of revenue. I love Stageit shows because they give my international fans the opportunity to see me play “live” without having to travel to the US
Every artist has their own way to attract fans, but my favorite is live shows. Playing live gives me the opportunity to connect with my fans on a personal level and I think that contributes greatly to the success of my music.
Be true to your music. Changing your music or who you are in order to fit a mold sucks the fun out of creativity. People don’t want more of the same and they will follow you for being different.
I don’t like to think of challenges or mistakes as something to avoid (smiles). I believe that you need to mess up in order to learn and grow. If I didn’t make mistakes, the times where I get it right wouldn’t be as special.
