Where we come from
At the "Managing your own release" panel at Big Sound 2008, Danny Rogers, manager of Gotye, Clare Bowditch, Litlte Red and Temper trap, among other things, was discussing how artists can build networks and find other people to help them with whatever they want to do next in their careers. He was reflecting on his own experience beginning work for another company and slowly working his way into the industry, when he noted that it was important to remember that:
"We all started at the bottom, not knowing anyone."
Of course, the best response to this common situation, and the one all successful people use reflexively, is to pick up the phone and keep making calls until you find the right person or people. They're probably not going to find you until you do something to get noticed and to get noticed you need to ... find the right help.
