Once Human vocalist Lauren Hart recently answered a few questions for Consequence Of Sound about the band's new record Scar Weaver, as well as any advice she might have on musicians breaking into the world of metal. On the latter, Hart offers that anyone trying to really get out there and make a name for themselves should probably start filming themselves doing covers (or originals) and posting them. Hart also offers another key piece of advice, which is "Get really good at your craft."
"How I got started is that I bought a cheap guitar and amp and started filming myself playing, and that’s how I ended up meeting people. The internet is great, and bad, too. It’s great for connecting with a lot of different people in the industry. You can upload a video of yourself singing or playing or doing whatever you do, and you get a platform and learn by doing it. You also grow at the same time that you’re networking.
"The internet is great for discovering musicians. Big bands, to this day, look on the internet for someone to fill the spot of a musician. So, film yourself. If you want to be a guitar player, learn guitar. Get really good at your craft."
