Yes less is more. Sometimes your tune doesn’t need a bunch of things going on in it. The one thing you never want to do is clutter your song with a bunch of unnecessary sounds that could be used in a spread of  8 tunes. Now building this short simple song took us a while because we went through most of the snare samples and never found what pops. So we built our own by stacking about 5 snares together with different textures to create one amazing sound that pops.

Social Media A Must Have Because…

it helps you collect fans and allow you to interact with your following.

 

No more the days where you have to pay a company all your earnings to be famous. No more the days where you have to wait until you are signed to a major label to become famous. You can become FAMOUS in your living room yes even your bedroom. Yup you read right. You don’t need a lot of money to be discovered. All you need to do is make sure you have a good internet connection; a phone/ tablet, or computer with a camera built in or compatible; and a account with these social media platforms for free. That’s it!

Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram | Google + | LinkedIn | Soundcloud

Those were just to name a few.

Please don’t hate us if we failed to mention your favorite social media platform. Just list it in the comment area and tell us what you like most about your choice.

Anyways, the point of this blog is to make sure you understand how important it is to have your beautiful presence associated with these social free accounts displaying who you are as a music professional. Each social media has their own way of displaying content. If you already have an account with one source, it may be challenging to learn another at first, but you’ll get the hang of it. Now while Twitter on one hand is more straight forward with posting content with only 140 characters per tweet, Facebook on the other hand has no limitations to its posting algorithm. However, both works the same essentially because you can import pictures in your post and add location details within your post or tweet. You can also add links, special characters, and videos if you like. You can refer to our tutorial on how to navigate around Facebook or Twitter by clicking the links in this sentence.

Our favorite at the moment happens to be Google+. The interaction is beyond our understanding literately. Google+ communities are filled with people who spend allot of time posting great content. The video calling feature called HANGOUTS is totally awesome. You can hold a video call up to ten people and broadcast live to the public via your YouTube channel if you choose to. How do you think we broadcast live every week?

Guess what the best part about this is… No problem we’ll wait.

It’s all connected via your Gmail account. No worries, no one will ever see your emails unless you screen share them on purpose, but Google made things easy for you to navigate between Gmail, G+, and YouTube FREE. Yes we have a tutorial on that as well, click here.

Whats your favorite social media platform? Tell us why.

Why artists need cover videos?

Why does a new artist need cover videos?

Well I’m glad you asked. My question to you is, who knows who you are besides mom, dad, sisters, and so forth? If you said your co-worker, keep reading because you just missed the point. Cover videos are designed to help you gain fans via subscription on Youtube or any other social media platform if the viewer likes you of course. This is where your creative brain juices starts flowing. The idea is to take a popular song you like and learn the words (avoid reading from paper or the computer, that’s tacky) and sing note for note as the original artist did but with your own style.

For the best results, type the exact title from the original video to your video upload and after that type (cover by: your artist name). The concept behind this is so that when people are searching for a song by their favorite artist, your video is liable of popping up too. You may get lucky and land your video into some music supervisor or some sort. WHO KNOWS!

Now GO practice and post or continue posting amazing videos. Yes you are welcome to post your awesome videos here.
