Gone are the days where artists where discovered jamming in hidden cafes all over the world. Time has definitely evolved and struggling artists have to find clever and unorthodox ways to draw attention to their craft. No, I’m not talking about those cheesy Idols shows or other variations of talent-less television shows that are thankfully dying down. Any struggling artist knows that in order to make a name for yourself in the music industry, you need to have your tracks on the internet.
What is Spotify?
So maybe you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what Spotify is. This brilliant music streaming system that allows people to access thousands of songs by artists thereby giving undiscovered musicians a platform to broadcast their music. Unlike other music streaming services, Spotify has managed to keep up to date with the latest pop trends. In fact Spotify recently started streaming Pokemon music which has reached an all time high. Love music? Check out this rock star pokie. Or play new pokies at Royal Vegas.
Famous musician discovered on the internet goes on to become multi-millionaire? It’s not the most insane idea in fact that’s how the talented yet controversial pop artist Justin Bieber was discovered. Bieber had posted home made music videos on YouTube which had garnered hundreds and then thousands of views. It wasn’t long before he was discovered. Spotify isn’t without controversy. In 2014, Taylor Swift pulled her music from the site citing low royalty as a reason. Despite this, Spotify still continues to grow and provide a platform for the undiscovered musician. Kllo is a relatively new two man band from Melbourne that have received around 10 million streams on Spotify so far, making them hugely popular. Would you use Spotify to share your music?
