Modern technology has made the ability to listen to your favorite band/singer’s entire discography as easy as pressing a button. It’s insane! I mean,I’m in my mid-to-late twenties, and this wasn’t possible when I was a kid.
Not only can you listen to your favorite stuff, but with that comes the ability to discover new music. Which is an objective I hope to provide for you with this website. It also makes getting signed to a label slightly easier.
While we do live in this amazing age of having information and media at our fingertips, I want to take a moment to stress the importance of supporting local artists. None of your favorite bands or singers would be where they are today without the support of their fans, and they ALL started as a local artist struggling to be heard.
Sure, I’ve been to my fair share of concerts and festivals, but the ones that I enjoy the most are those that are put on by local musicians. Not only does it give you the opportunity to hear new music, but you can always socialize with the performers before and after. Plus, when you buy their merch, you get this sense of being a part of helping someone achieve their dream. And that’s a really special feeling, let me tell you.
In short, next time someone asks you to check out their SoundCloud or BandCamp, or even come out to see them play, I really encourage you to do so. Who knows? You may stumble across the next big act!
