Summer is a time when several songs are released across the Caribbean. Many artistes are working to push their career forward or even just getting their career started. I am sure that they are those of you who might be artistes or contimplating it. I am sure the others… I mean vocally challenged like myself lol, might have been approached about using one of your talents to assist artistes in their careers. Whatever your current position or pending position, I am sure you want to know more.
As you know I define myself of course as an Online Marketer and Web 2.0 Consultant, I would advise that you take the time to understand the role that the internet is playing within the industry. I would like for you to take some time to recognise that the game is changing. The music itself, the recorded track or album is not longer a product that is paid for. Many persons don’t pay for the songs they have in their possesion. We are coming into a world where the idea of paying a small fee and having access to an unlimited number of songs is very much a reality.
There is much to learn, I have written on the music industy on this blog,
Check out all my post here
Included in those list of posts is a guest post and a podcast with Simone Harris. Simone has been one person who helps to keep me on my toes when it comes to these specific changes in the music industry. Since that time Simone has now launched her own blog and website. You know I can’t beleive her – she’s gone off doing her own thing!!! lol I am kidding.
I am glad to see that I could have helped her to get her start, her blog – Simone Says has become one of those must read blogs for me. Simone shares her thoughts and highlights the happenings in the the industry which I find very helpful.
You can check out her spanking new website www.simoneharris.com
Simone also shared this video by Bobby Borg – author, musician and educator with me, which I feel has alot of relavance to us in the Caribbean as things for summer start to go into over drive.
