The music industry is competitive with numerous hurdles that certainly put hundreds off the equation. Talent is essential, but what matters is the originality and undying desire to become the in the game.

iThump now encourages others to invest heavily in understanding their purpose and finding their reason, then put a plan together and stick to it no matter what.
