EMPOWERING MUSICAL ARTISTS
We put wellness at the top of developing your music career because YOU matter
YOU HAVE A SHOT AT MAKING YOUR MUSIC CAREER A REALITY.
With the right industry guidance, focus, attitude, and a whole lot of self-love thrown in there!
No matter what point you are at in your career you will always do better if you take care of the person behind the Artist. The one who has a deep love of music and can't imagine not being in the music business.
When you do that -
Your output is higher
You juggle the demands of the business easier
You perform better
and you can enjoy this crazy ride for a bit longer!
We are place for you to
✔️Start or continue your music career via our portal of guest masterclasses on branding, an introduction to marketing, publishing, and more
✔️Meet music mentors who can give personalized advice about your career, guide you to make safe business decisions, and give you honest feedback on your music (and maybe even pass it on to a few people!)
✔️Learn much-needed tools that will help you protect your well-being and mental health whilst you are active in the business
✔️ Help you to stay grounded and connected to who you are at your core (because sometimes the music life can challenge this)
✔️Develop your confidence and esteem if you need a bit of extra support
✔️Meet fellow Artists for support and potential collaboration
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!
Inside we 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.

Meet Me, Bernii Mac
Firstly, let me say. I admire you. I find your courage and creativity inspiring. The joy your music can bring to the world is valuable, essential and needed. Without you the world would have NO music? Can you imagine how dull the world would be...it would be awful!
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 Osborne, Pitchshifter, 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.

What's inside BTA...
- 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.
