EMPOWERING ARTISTS FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Put you and your well-being at the forefront of your musical career

Let's face it the Music Business is TOUGH.

❌ It can be easy to lose sight of why you began this career in the first place.

❌ It can be easy to fall into the hands of the wolves in sheep's clothing.

❌ It can be easy to fall into the trap of doubting yourself and repeatedly thinking "can I really do this"?

Becoming The Artist you want to be is all about YOU.  We are a musical community that supports and honours each other whilst we navigate the modern music business.

After twenty-odd years in the music business both behind the scenes and on stage, I decided to set up an authentic safe space for musical Artists who are courageous enough to go for their musical desires.

In Becoming The Artist (BTA) we put a large focus on the well-being of YOU the Artist. Something that we can often forget or neglect as we are on our musical journey.

I am here to tell you that YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DREAM A REALITY. With the right guidance, mindset, focus and a whole lot of self-love thrown in there!

No matter what point you are at in your career it's essential that you are taken care of so that you can be the best at what you do. Like building your fan base, handling yourself in tricky musical situations and smashing it at your live shows!

Here at BTA, I have created a safe space for you to:

✔️ Develop your confidence and esteem

✔️Learn tools that will help you protect your well being and mental health whilst you are active in the business and

✔️ Guide you to remain authentic in a music business (especially when it can challenge who you are)

✔️Introducing you to music connections, music mentors and experts of all kinds who can guide you to make safe choices, give you honest feedback on your music and help you care for you.

Your well-being is as essential to your success as your craft, marketing and branding. If you are not okay, your career is not going to be okay! I learn't this the hard way.

Inside I encourage you to thrive by supporting you as the person behind the Artist whilst at the same time introducing you to music connections, music mentors and experts of all kinds who can guide you to make safe choices, give you honest feedback on your music and help you care for you.

With this level of support, it is so much easier to move around the music world, build your fan base, surpass your goals and own your career whilst making super authentic personal choices. 

 

So if you are a Musical Artist who has BIG DREAMS, but who wants to protect your well-being by putting YOU FIRST, you've come to the right place.

Meet Bernii

Hey, Artist!

Firstly, let me say. I admire you. I want the best for you. I find your courage and creativity inspiring. The joy your music, no matter the genre, can bring to the world is valuable, essential and needed. 

So, who am I?

In my career, I have worked as a professional vocalist and vocal coach. I write my own music, and I have also gone for my own dreams as a musical Artist. I have also worked behind the scenes in various capacities and have had the pleasure of either working with or being in the circles of those directly working with Drake, Queen, Ozzy OsbornePitchshifter, Will and Dani Wilde, James Brown, Olly Murs and others. I have also worked with many independent artists as a co-writer and music mentor including being VP of A&R for Amazing Radio in NYC where I scouted new musical talent. 

Having worked in the music business both as a musical creative myself and off the stage. I have also had my own internal struggles that lead me into some tricky situations in my career and really affected me on a personal level. It has taken a lot of inner work to overcome those challenges and empower myself.

I have had highs and lows in the music business, as most of us do and it is from my own personal experience that I founded Becoming The Artist to help to raise you to meet the realities of your music industry goals both safely and confidently.

A Little Bit of Client Love from some of my one-to-one mentoring and vocal students...

💛

 

Will Sumsuch

- Artist and Label Owner BBE/Colour and Pitch

Bernii is a joy to know - the kind of friend and mentor I'd have loved to have had when I was starting out. She's a prolific songwriter, a wealth of knowledge, ultra-professional and always approachable and encouraging in an industry that's sadly often the opposite.

Jeff Franzel - Pianist & Songwriter

- Over 20 top 10 hits worldwide for over 250 artists 

Bernii is an exceptional vocalist and composer and I have had the honor of working with her this past June. I can relate to her because she has a broad music background in jazz, pop and R&B music. Her father is regarded as one of the the top jazz and classical clarinet players so she grew up with a very diversified musical background. She is a joy to work with and excels in the music business. A true talent that has an original sound..

Paddy Byrne -  Songwriter & Producer

- Paloma Faith, Will Young & Ella Eyre

I've worked with Bernii as a vocalist, songwriter and music manager and in all areas she proves herself to be talented, professional and dynamic. She not only contributes as a wonderful singer and writer but also drives projects to completion. She's a huge asset to any musical project that you might be considering.
