How to Live Your Dream of Making Music for a Living, with No Time, No Money, and No Team Around You

 

Hi, I am Seth Mosley  

If you’re like most of my readers, you are an ambitious creative. You write or produce music and are committed to winning at it. It is what drives you. You realize that music has power and you have a desire to share your own music with the world. 

But you also realize that to do so, it takes time. And time is something that you don’t have a lot of. It also takes a team, and it takes a little money to get started. Maybe you feel like this reader:

“I feel like I lack the right team around me. Things I’ve talked about needing recently: a publisher, a manager, a publicist. I’m independent and it’s hard. I keep knocking on doors and it seems like in the music industry, the creators must have others do that for them in order for those doors to be opened. I’m at the point where I’m trying to be content, but the drive is there to do so much more through the platform of music…Oh and I guess the obvious thing is finances to make this all happen as well.”
 

Does This Sound Like You? Be Honest:

  • Do you feel like the inspiration is coming at you fast and you don’t know what to do with it?
  • Do you fear that you may never realize the success you dream of in music?
  • Do you worry that you may never have the financial resources to make it happen?
  • Do you wish you had a mentor to guide you along the way?

    If so, you’re not alone. The music business can be a lonely place. All of us have felt this way.

 

I Know How You Feel

I know what it feels like to have unrealized dreams - to knock on doors and none of them are opening, to feel like you’re working 3 full time jobs just so you can stay afloat and still make music. 

Believe me, I was broke for years. It felt like a rat race, just waiting to get my “big break”. I’m from a small town and had no family or friends in the music business. I did the 150 shows a year in a van as a touring artist. I ran a small studio recording bands for cheap and not going anywhere fast.


“Seth is such a gentle soul with incredible talent. Every writing session and time in the studio with him leaves me refreshed and thankful for the job I’m blessed to have! You don’t always find top notch talent in top notch humans, but that’s what you get with Full Circle Music. Thankful!”
Francesca Battistelli

 

As a full-time music producer, songwriter, and head of a successful music company, I can honestly say I would have done a lot of things differently on the way to avoid many of the heartaches. I now know that so much of our careers as creators in the music industry is actually out of our control. We really can’t control whether our songs land on others’ ears the way we hope they will. I can’t just pay for a #1 on the radio charts. The success of our songs is often out of our hands.

But now I know that there are some key things that are in our control.

 

You Have What It Takes

Today, I am a two-time grammy winner, and #1 Billboard Producer of the Year, and #1 SESAC Songwriter of the Year. I’ve received 4 Dove Awards, had over 21 #1 Radio Singles, and have produced and written on Gold and Platinum Records sold all around the world. I am the founder of Full Circle Academy and Full Circle Music, companies that are in the forefront of finding and developing the best new talent in the music industry, as well as helping the A-List artists stay “A-List”.

 

I am also the creator and host of a podcast called The Full Circle Music Show. Our show has listeners all over the world with thousands of downloads a month. I have the chance to sit down with the best and brightest leaders in all of the music industry, and share what I’m learning in real time with our listeners. Some of our guests have included Tom Douglas (Songwriter: Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert), Neal Avron (Producer/Mixer: Fallout Boy, Walk the Moon, 21 Pilots, Sara Bareilles), & Michael W Smith (Multi-Grammy Winning Artist, Millions of Records Sold Worldwide).


“What a privilege and honor it has been to be able to work with Seth Mosley and Full Circle. Seth was such a huge part of my Sovereign record… Will never forget. And by the way… This company just keeps getting better and better.”
Michael W Smith

I am also a speaker, leader of a group called Music City Mastermind helping connect powerful thought leaders together, and lead a group called Music and Money Investors Group, helping people turn success in the music business, into lasting financial wealth for generations.

I have been married to my wife Celi, for six years. We have a two-year-old daughter, and we live just south of Nashville, Tennessee.

 

All You Need Is a Mentor

I would love to help mentor you, helping you navigate the challenges of the music business, so that you can succeed in both

- music and business.

You don’t have to continue to beat your head up against a wall trying to make it happen. And you don’t have to have it all together to get started. Sometimes it doesn’t take a lot to get the ball rolling. You can live your dream. You aren’t even limited by talent, resources, and your network as much as you might think.

 


“You are one of the most creative, humble people I know. The Lord has blessed you and is continuing to do so. I’m just lucky that we get to work with you.”
Chad Mattson: Frontman of Unspoken
