Scruffy, Indie folk-rock from Transylvania

So much noise

Posted by admin On October - 27 - 2017

Every day I go online to check new releases on CdBaby, Bandcamp, Deezer, iTunes and every other digital outlet that I can, including Hype Machine and Submithub (artists will be more familiar with this one) – and it is baffling how much music there is out there. Almost frightening, I might add. How is a modern, indie musician to gain a following, get any attention whatsoever?

We have rapidly expanded the musical universe thanks to affordable recording equipment, online distribution and promotion. Not even mentioning DSLR cameras and the way they make music video production accessible to the crowds.

Some might say, there is no excuse anymore. In fact, there is! The result of all this is that there is so much noise out there, and so much good music, that it’s intimidating, to say the least.

I sometimes wonder if there is any place or need for more music anyway. Don’t we have more, much more, than we care to listen to anyway?
