The internet as we know has changed the music industry forever. And I'm
not just talking about the downloading and sharing of tracks that's now going on
in every school and a lot of offices around the world, I'm talking about the
more positive side of things: Everyone has the change to make it big!
Websites like MySpace have given EVERYONE the chance to showcase their
music, whether you're the next big thing to grace the centre stage, or a rookie
musician with vocals flatter then a fried omelet. But with all this choice
around, why should the consumer (The person you want to pay your wages by buying
your music) choose to listen to and invest in you over the other thousands of
people that do similar music?
Many people get overlooked because they don't offer anything different. On
top of that, many people get overlooked because they haven't put that extra bit
of effort into their music which in turn effects the quality. Whether you're
making a tune for MySpace, for your album or for a one off broadcast, YOU MUST
ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR MUSIC IS OF THE UP MOST QUALITY! This will make you stand
above the person that's equally talented but doesn't put as much effort into
their music. Or the person who is equally as talented but uses an inferior
recording booth so your vocals and mix down sound of a better quality then
theirs. I can't stress enough how important quality is in this over saturated
music industry. It's already hard enough for consumers to weed through the
rubbish and find the quality, so why not make sure everything you do is of the
highest quality and make it easier for them to find you?
