2) The Foundation

Audiences are ignorant when it comes to musical things – that’s because most of them aren’t musicians. Your audience doesn’t know why they like you. They just do… or they don’t.

But they understand human behavior perfectly.

On the other hand, confidence, authority, and charisma are all qualities that an audience is attracted to. Who have you seen who exudes confidence and charisma onstage? When an artist leads their audience this way, the audience relaxes, sits back, and goes for the ride!
