Creative Fathers: Donovan Berry
Career Explorer defines a music artist as someone who creates, performs, and releases music either independently or through a record label. The commitment level of a music artist is extreme, living sometimes a nomadic and taxing lifestyle and spending long days and nights in the studio recording music. They travel constantly, performing their music to small and large audiences with the goal of expanding their fan base.
Being a music artist requires a lot of talent, skill, and knowledge. Talent alone is not enough, but must be coupled with continual studying, learning, and practicing. During the beginning stages of the pandemic, music artists and entertainers had to find other ways to get their artists seen and heard.
Online boosted the careers of music artists performing shows online, having listening parties online, talking to their fans more online, sharing more of their everyday world online, and having more time to just create. Today we take a look at a super talented entertainer by the name of Deniro.
