Beethoven’s fifth symphony has something called Fermata, which means 'play it as you feel'. What this implies is that a musician must have a point of view when expressing himself.
In this internet age when music recording, gear, and production is commoditized, the only way to thrive is to be yourself, that is having a point of view or niche.
So, how do you find your POV?
That said, in the age of Wikipedia where no one is an expert, abandoning your POV can sometimes be useful in curation, which is a form of authorship/creation in itself.
