Ingredients for Musical Success: Originality

Posted in Articles, DIY Diva, Great Blog Off 2008, Indie Music | No Comments »

Over 30,000 CDs are released each year. In order to stand out from the rest of the releases, you need to be different. Do you write killer songs? Does your lead singer have unique vocals? Is your style or image different from what’s out there now? Take some time to think about your act and how it compares to others currently residing on iTunes and Billboard.

Sometimes it helps to write down a description of your act and its music. Ask a few friends and fans to do the same, even asking for comparisons to popular bands. Compare the notes, and see where you agree (or not). Pay close attention to the descriptions given by those who come to see you play. They may see things that you might never notice from the stage.

The results will be interesting.
