“It’s a chance to inspire through what you do,” says stic.man, one-half of the hip hop duo. “It can be a big step in advancing your professional career, as well as gaining support from those in attendance.”
stic.man believes that the most important skills for emerging artists to focus on building are “authentic subject matter, compelling and original songwriting, and engaging stagemanship.”
He also wants to ensure that his supporting acts are hard at work making an impact on their local community: “They should be a positive example for their peers,” he says. His advice is to “develop your skill with humility, and keep practicing!”
