MANUAL // Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work.
“Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work."
By Czarina Madayag
Cass Knowles lives by this mantra, a conspiratorial YouTuber by day and an underground Melbourne rapper by night. She is the very description of a self-doer as her craft is purely her own. Her advice for young artists, “don’t rely on anybody else to do the dirty work for you.”
“Want designs done? Crack photo shop and learn to do it yourself. Want full creative control of your music? Learn post production and buy a standard AKG. It’s an era where signing a contract will be more of a setback if you have your own visions and marketing ideas. You don’t want to become a product only popular for consumerism for a short span of years.”
