In a world full of record labels, it’s easy to get caught up in the dream.
That dream of getting your big break moment, when a big-wig from Hollywood calls you up and wants to sign you on their label.

We didn’t have a tv and things got pretty boring pretttttty fast, so I started watching youtube videos on a daily basis. I kept discovering new videos and awesome youtubers. I got addicted!
