Musician Wellness with Nuela Charles
We sat down with JUNO nominated singer songwriter Nuela Charles to discuss self-care as a musician, and how to stay true to yourself as an independent artist. Watch the video below to see what she says about learning to delegate tasks while juggling a busy schedule, taking care of yourself, and what advice she has for other up and coming artists looking to navigate a career in music. 💙
"Some of the things that I say to up and coming artists asking for advice in terms of their career is just to take it slow. There's no rush, and I think when you're first starting out, it's really important to figure out who you are as an artist and what you want to say. It's very easy to get pulled into this industry and try to be something that's already worked...I feel like if you're constantly chasing a sound, or a persona, you're gonna burn out and you're not going to enjoy doing what you're doing...So, just, figure out who you are."
