Okay — we have a confession to make. I like young singer, television star, and movie star actress Hilary Duff. At our house, we also like history and gangster movies. That’s why the news that Hilary Duff will begin filming for The Story of Bonnie & Clyde this Thanksgiving sounds like a great surprise — as we have not had an old school style motion picture historical documentary dramatized to look forward to going to see at our local neighborhood movie theater over the holidays with our teens in a long time.

The offline ways are also very effective, but a bit costly and difficult. Offline methods consist of distributing music CDs of your music among the music lovers of your locality. This is costly but very effective. You can sign up with the music production companies also; however, this method is not so easy. Most music production does not sign up with amateur bands or singers.

Trying to start a music career is like pushing a car. It takes a lot of power to get it rolling, especially if you are trying to roll it up hill. Once you get it started moving, it gets a lot easier and you don’t have to push it nearly as hard and if you hit a flat spot or a downhill grade, you might even be able to hop in and enjoy the ride. But if you ever let that momentum stop, then you have to start all over again.
