J Bert, appreciate you joining us today. What do you think it takes to be successful?

I believe success is not about having a lot of money or driving the nicest car or owning the biggest home. Success is what’s within you. Whenever you wake in the morning, you probably don’t say much. That’s the thing because some people don’t get to wake up as you do. Being thankful, respectful, having wisdom, and always wanting to help others is what makes you successful. Growing up, it took a lot of time to learn that. Being full of yourself and thankful and still fighting for a better tomorrow not only for yourself but for the people around you makes you successful. As an artist, my goal is to spread the love around the world. I want to help people who weren’t able to have what I have or have the materials that I have today. This is what it takes to be successful.

Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.

Founder J Bert, Bert Music label is positioned to help talented musicians across the country get noticed, providing exposure and support to artists in all music genres.

The music industry is flooded with young, talented artists who are hindered from making their music heard because of several reasons such as the lack of support, funds, and guidance, among others. It is the dream of every musician to get their music out, but without the right platform, it becomes a hard and distressing process.

The label intends to meet the needs of artists in the US ever-changing entertainment industry with cutting-edge label services.

Speaking about the motivation behind the Bert Music label, J Bert had this to say, “Too many talented artists out there never get the recognition they deserve, and never even get a chance to succeed. Being a part of the entertainment industry has really changed my perspective, seeing people playing my music around the world has made me smile and I want to give others the chance to enjoy that privilege.”

Bert Music is the first-of-its-kind music record label in Dallas, Texas. It offers artists services such as A&R support and funding, marketing and promotions, specialist support, music distribution, licensing deals, solid branding, and much more.

Growing clientele is very simple. Using social media platforms like TikTok, Facebook or Instagram will help along the way. I have a background in IT which makes it very simple for me to market.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
