As for making music, the most important aspects are contemplative lyrics, ambient sounds, and above all else, authenticity. A music production software like GarageBand or Ableton is necessary in order to record and clean up music. A condenser microphone is standard but you have to keep in mind that the emotion is always going to outweigh the technical shortcomings or resources. Releasing music on SoundCloud & YouTube is the most straightforward (and free) way to start.
