I feel your pain. I’ve gotten to a point where I don’t tell my friends and family about my music anymore. What I’ve been doing lately is marketing my music overseas. I’ll keep you posted on how that works out because I’m actually writing a updated version of this article around the 19th of this month. Now if you have millions of screaming fans? I know the people who’s support is half-hearted will say “OMG I KNOW STEVE BELLO.” And another issue I’m running into personally are artists from my hometown (Indianapolis) wanting me to come to their shows but act sheepish when I ask to collab or come to my performances (and they are the ones who suggested the idea in the first place.) I’ve gotten to the point where I go to bigger cities like NY or LA or even Chicago for acting and music.
