Singer/songwriter MacKenzie Bourg is no newcomer to the music industry. After appearing on hit TV singing competitions such as The Voice and American Idol, MacKenzie went on to successfully release two of his original songs titled "Roses," and "Little Moon."
With all of this experience behind him, TWIST decided that he would be the perfect person to help us break down the music industry. We asked MacKenzie to share his best tips on getting started, and he revealed them all in the exclusive video below.
In addition to the video, MacKenzie shared his list of specific things that every up-and-coming singer should know.
"My biggest advice is that nobody can be you more than you, so be that," he says. "There aren't any tricks, because if there were everybody would be where they want to go. It's a process, and sometimes it sucks, but it's hard work and dedication that'll get you where you want to be."
"If you make good music, people will find it," he adds. "You don't need a million followers. The internet allows people to become success stories from their mom's basement. There's no reason with the right drive, determination, and a little luck you can't be exactly what you want to."
MacKenzie's advice can really help any aspiring artists out there! Make sure to check out his video interview in the player above for more.
