Sean Garrett Gives Advice To New Artists

seanheadshot

Before Sean Garrett was deemed “The Pen” by his colleagues, he was in your shoes as an up and coming artist. Although he worked hard to secure a record deal, ultimately his performing talents were shelved temporarily to focus on his writing and producing skills.

After being behind the scenes for a number of years creating chart toppers for Ciara, Brittney Spears and Beyoncé to name a few, Sean Garrett is bringing his talent back to the forefront as a performing artist.

I ran into Sean Garrett, who gave me some insight for up and coming artists to take their career from behind the scenes to having your name in lights.

Socialtik Mag: What are three things behind the scenes artists such as a producers or songwriters should do to become the headliner?

Sean Garrett: Perfect your skills, Work hard and stay focused!

SM: How was your recent transition from behind the scenes as a writer to front man as the singer?

SG: Because I started off in the industry as a performing artist, I was already familiar with the steps I needed to take to hone in on my craft.

STM: Was it easier to make the transition because you are a highly sought out producer?

SG: It’s easy on the back end because of the opportunities to work alongside top people. However, I still have to prove everything to the fans.

SM: What is the most important thing you have learned in the industry?

SG: There are a lot of folks that will try to discourage you from your dream but YOU have to show the world. Don’t let the world show YOU.
