Rising Artist & Creative Fulicatra, Shares Ways To Become A Successful Musician

Behind so many songs and the different music genres we hear, there are also many untold stories. Stories of struggles, mistakes, lost hope, and so on. These stories are most of the times about singers and musical artists who have dedicated themselves to the world of music and have gone under the grind to make it through even amidst much competition in the field. There’s no doubt that luck plays a major role in defining success for a musical artist; however, it is not the only thing. There are many qualities that are at play behind the success of famous musicians. Evandas Laukys, aka Fulicatra, who is a rising name in the music field today, shares with us a few important qualities that he feels can help people become successful musical artists.

•​Passion: There is nothing without passion, says Fulicatra, who believes that individuals must only do things they feel passionate about. With passion in heart, every struggle and challenge can be faced by people. This passion helps musical artists to push the limits and create far better music each passing day.

•​Hard work: There may be shortcuts to achieving success in music, but it will definitely not give success in the long run. There’s only one path for achieving success, and that is through hard work and putting every possible effort to become more polished as a musical artist each day, says Fulicatra.

•​Practice: There are many singers who after entering the industry feel they have already arrived and then go nowhere with their talent since they do not work upon their skills consistently. Nothing beats constant practice and learning in music every day to become the success story one desires to be, highlights Fulicatra.

•​Patience: Successes that are attained overnight may not stay for a longer period and to attain success that may give the fruits for years to come, one needs to work upon developing patience, says Fulicatra. All good things take time and musical artists must have faith in their talent to receive the fruits they desire at the right time.

Fulicatra has always tried to remain true to himself and his talent in music and content creation, which has given him the popularity he enjoys today as one of the industry’s leading most musical talents. He has made it on social media as an influencer and creator, earning 550K followers and 11K likes. 

For the future, Fulicatra aims to become as big as the famous artists and for that, he wants to keep posting interesting, engaging and more creative content like him playing the guitar and piano to attract many more people to his channel.

#WordToTheWise: “Quality Over Quantity”


A lot of artists have 100 plus songs under their belt and still wonder why they haven’t got “on” yet.

So until you know that you’ve found your sound as an artist, don’t try to knock out as many songs as you can in one studio session. Find one record (at a time) that you love, and perfect it. It only takes one hit. ?

#WordToTheWise is quality over quantity!

For more #WORDTOTHEWISE tips, check out PortiaTerrae.com.

#WordToTheWise: “Brand Yourself”


Brand yourself. Find ways to separate yourself from the rest. Have a personality that doesn’t distract from your music, but rather compliments it, and ultimately attracts more fans.

Ms. Cardi B is a prime example! People fell in love with Cardi’s unfiltered persona on TV and social media, and when people started to listen to her music, they were pleasantly surprised. Not only that, once Cardi started gaining some heavy clout, she NEVER changed — and people love her even more for that!

And what about Blac Youngsta?
His Instagram videos are beyond hilarious, and even if we don’t get what he’s talking about half the time, he makes us laugh, and we continue to go back to his Insta for more. Best believe, when he drops any posts about his music, that we’re here for that too!

#WordToTheWise is brand yourself as an ARTIST, your music and image goes hand and hand.

The Attic LA Becomes LA’s Safe House for Musicians

Have you heard the news? The Attic LA is a new platform for all creatives to display their work to the public. The event is a safe haven that encourages and promotes positive vibes for artists from all over LA giving artists a chance to tell their story. We got a chance to chop it up with the founders of The Attic LA to see what the hype is about.

Can you break down what The Attic LA is?

At this moment in time, we are a group of Artist/Curators that are working to produce and develop unique events and shows that showcase artist that are diverse in their mediums, perspectives, and backgrounds. We love our city so we are pushing to make a show for LA, with LA talent, and most importantly in LA. At the same time we are focused on building a community where the artist expose themselves to that community and the community exposes themselves to the artist. A symbiotic relationship that keeps people wanting to come back and soak up those good vibes, and give all that love right back to the artist. Ultimately, inspiring them to keep creating beautiful works. We have our sights set pretty high as far as future and our goals.

What challenges did you face while building The Attic LA?

We are all different. We have diverse perspectives and strong personalities. When you have that all in one room, it can be challenging to agree on certain inputs and aspects. So we had to learn how to communicate better with one another, we had to be willing to put our egos aside so the event could thrive, and ultimately we grew to trust whomever had a hold of the wheel in certain aspects of creation. Conquering these obstacles only made us better as a team. Something that may get misconstrued to us is that having a lot of competitive people in the room is dysfunctional. We are all competitive, but growing up in sports gave us all a great foundation for team dynamics, collaborating, culture, and making sacrifices to accomplish a common goal.
You talk a lot about the culture. What does that mean to you?

We follow very closely the given definition. Culture – “The customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social group”. We are starting out and establishing our culture as a social group. There are certain ideals we uphold steadfastly. We believe in an inclusive community.  We are accepting of all people and any way in which they choose to express, identify, or define themselves as individuals. We believe in “we before me” and the idea that collaboration and sacrifice can breed situations where everyone involved can win. We believe in maintaining and building solid relationships with the artist and patrons of our shows. We are laying the foundation for what we believe we’ll be able to build something truly special on. It is imperative that we establish and maintain a culture where artist can be vulnerable and express their message, people can connect, respect is given, relationships are valued, and a community can grow.

How would The Attic LA differentiate from other platforms that already exist?

We believe that the right people always set you a part. The way you carry yourself, conduct your business, and treat people. A great deal of that stems from your culture and the ideals you uphold. Only time will tell, but we believe we are standing on a solid foundation. As we build this community and continue to have our culture permeate it, we’ll be hard not to notice in our humble opinion. People gravitate towards genuine people; that’s what we are!

What direction do you see The Attic LA going in the next year if the first event is a success?

Success breeds opportunity! So we are excited to see what opportunities come to us after the show. Collaborations, connections, artist lining up to work with us, people buzzing about upcoming show, and other events because they want to get back to that initial feeling and experience that we were able to provide them. Success will be being able to reproduce that quality consistently. Taking that standard of excellence and quality to everything we produce in all areas of art, media, and entertainment.

How would you measure the success rate of The Attic LA?

We have lofty ambitions! Success is accomplishing those goals we have set. Each one being a stepping stone to the others. So first and foremost is establishing the culture and developing shows that meet and exceed our standard of excellence. We have array of projects in our sights and we want to make sure they are executed well. We hope each time you leave an Attic LA event your filled with joy and sorrow, happy to have come, sad to see it go. We hope to leave you sick with longing and eager to get back and have that experience, soak up the vibe, and be amongst the community again. We want people to not only follow us (@theatticla) but feel like they’re home whenever they are with us.

In order to be in attendance at the next event, you’ll have to follow The Attic LA at @theatticla. Catch you next time!

JAYDEE TALKS ABOUT HER ALBUM AND FEARS THAT SHE HAS HAD TO OVERCOME

Jaydee Dailey is a true talented artist. She’s a free spirit, creative and is an artistic Nusoul artist with several different talents. She’s the full package. Creativity is life for Jaydee. Spiritual growth, positive energy and healing through music is inspiring for Jaydee and plays a huge role in growing her career.

“Why try to find yourself, when you can create yourself?” – JD

We had a chance to sit down with Jaydee to talk about her recently released album and the obstacles she faced along the way.

Tell us about your latest project?

Fxded, also known as BrokenClocksofTime, is currently available on SoundCloud.

Music saved my life, literally. Before I started my most recent project, FxDED (BrokenClocksofTime), I was anti-sober, self-destructing, not to mention I was doing so at a devastatingly self-deteriorating pace. My latest project is exciting because it is my first project. I wrote a song about grieving for my brother who passed away in 2016 of December. After a rough year of drinking liquor by the bottle, breakdowns, pushing everyone away, and destroying every ounce of life in myself, I was resurrected. I visited my brothers grave for the first time, and it inspired me to write Broken Clocks of Time, which is how I got inspiration for the project. I felt that fire spark again. I had completely stopped living life and checked out when he passed away. When I found passion and life through music for the first time since he passed away, I knew that I would create myself again. It was a miracle because, I felt hope and faith, which had felt so far way moments before. I may not be the same person I was before all of this happened, but I have found to love the person I am. My supporters have really helped me realized how much music can give a person power and healing.

“No more locked door singing”

What was the most difficult thing you faced while making your album?

I would have to say my biggest challenge was finding a balance. A balance which would give my music career progression and success without depleting my character in the process. I needed to constantly remind myself to not move as fast as my brain works. I have diversity and talent with being new in the music industry, which people will take advantage of if I allow them to. It’s hard to turn down opportunities that are dope and could be beneficial for my music exposure, especially when they involve promising rewards. I often remind myself that not all opportunities available, even the ones that are dope and legit are wise choices for my future. I learned with time I had to be diligent, patient, positive, and encouraged through times that may feel discouraging. I don’t want to look back wishing I had done things differently, signed to a label with a terrible deal, or worse even, just because I didn’t have enough patience to remember my intelligence. I love music, I love myself, and I love my supporters too much to not be wise enough to make it up the top of every chart in the right way.

How would you describe your music?

I sing about experiences, things people can relate to, and I always try to keep my voice and lyrics raw and vulnerable so it has that authenticity. It gives a sense of nostalgia, euphoric almost, while it still portrays sensual and soft vibes, but yet has an edginess to it. I love that my music can portray a soulful chill vibe for people to feel soothed simply by my voice, it’s a rewarding feeling for me when many people say they find my music healing.

Who are some people you’re influenced by?

I would have to say my biggest influence is a dope artist, 7 a.m., who released Sober, around the time I started my project. He ended up becoming my producer, engineer, and best friend throughout the project and helped me gain confidence, knowledge, dope beats, and we collaborated on a lot of tracks that I still listen to every day. He is one of my biggest influences because of how much effort and time he put into believing in me and pushing me to be my best version of myself as an artist and person.

Tell us a success story about a time you feared something but you’ve overcame it?

I feared not being able to reach all the high expectations that I set for myself. That I would put myself out there, being honest about all I went through, because it’s so personal, and no one would understand. I am glad that I don’t let fear run my life, because people have shown me support, understanding, and love ever since I dropped, FxDED. I got to heal through music, and I now see that my music gives other people a similar chance in a different way.

Would you collaborate with another female MC? If so, who would you want to collaborate with?

I would collaborate with Queen Latifah. She has multiple talents like I do. Since I sing, act, model, paint, etc., I feel she has a lot of wisdom and a free spirit. She always sends a message through her music, and keeps things with class. I respect her career and how she carries herself. She has a good sense of humor as well. I feel if her and I collaborated, it would be epic, for the simplicity of how different and yet alike we are.
