The Finish More Music Podcast

Sep 21, 2020

Whenever we try to create something original, to bring something new to the table, we put ourselves out there with all of our blood, sweat and tears laid bare. 

It’s challenging, it can be uncomfortable, but it’s also one of the most rewarding things that we as human beings can ever experience.

And part of the creative process is about absorbing and learning from those who came before us, and those around us, as artists throughout history have always done.

But when does being influenced by one another cross the line into straight up stealing?

In this episode, I share something that I’ve experienced very recently that’s got me thinking about the difference between being inspired and being a thief, and how dangerous blurring these lines can be for everybody involved.

Copying might be quicker, copying might be easier, but copying is faking it.

Do you want to experience the amazing accomplishment and validation that comes with creating something truly authentic, or do you want to pretend?

Check out this week’s podcast to find out how to use other artists’ work the right way, and start making YOUR mark on the world.
