Here are some key differences that you should be aware of:

An Artist has a distinct and recognizable sound. This includes his song arrangements as well as vocal style. A Singer molds his voice and overall sound to the song or genre he is singing.

An Artist creates a musical style and even [private_member]a sub-genre of his own. They do not copy what is already on the market because they know that what is on the market now will be obsolete in 12 months. A Singer tries to emulate other artists and particular genres.

An artist has fans who rave about him tell their friends about him and bring them to see him live. He draws fans to his appearances. A Singer doesn’t create a fan base because they are not identifiable on their own. They get paid to entertain whoever is in the audience at the time.

An Artist’s attitude is “It’s all about me!” I don’t mean that it in a selfish or cocky way. But he knows that he is a brand that must me marketed and sold. He knows that he needs to develop and protect his image his integrity his message etc.” All plans have to revolve around that concept. A Singer however is all about the gig the band members what he likes or dislikes how he is in the mood to dress etc.

An Artist is ‘on stage’ whenever he is in public. He knows he is being watched by both fans and the press and he music conduct himself accordingly. For example he cannot buy a car that doesn’t fit his image. A Singer on the other hand goes back to being himself the second he walks out the door of the venue he performed in.

An Artist develops a vocal style that is all his own. He is never confused with another artist because he has worked hard to not be a copycat. He transforms songs to fit his own style. Singers transform themselves to fit the songs they sing. They purposely emulate other artists. That is what is expected of them.

An Artist develops a brand all his own. That means that his sound his look his marketing his web page his CDs and everything else associated with him is always consistent in style colors message and image. A Singer on the other hand may dress and sing country one day then don a tuxedo to sing standards at a wedding the next. He is not trying to create a persona just get work.

An Artist has a marketing plan that specifically identifies how he is going to get recognition get airplay generate publicity etc. He works hard at establishing himself and his brand as a recognizable stand-alone entity regionally nationally and even internationally. A Singer follows the money. He may sing demos sing for commercials sing numerous styles of music etc. His marketing plan consists of advertising his service for hire.

An Artist finds a niche and fills it. He may be a cross between 2 or more genres attracting fans from both ends of the spectrum. He may reach a specific segment of the population that no one else has tapped in to. He knows his niche and sticks with it.

An Artist knows his fans. He studies them to find out what they like about him. He then gives them more and more of what they’ve come to expect from him. A Singer may have a completely different audience at every gig. He entertains whoever is there and then goes home.
