One of the most powerful websites for the beginning musician has to be SoundCloud !
When I first became interested in promoting my music the first place I chose was SoundCloud . It is available to professionals and amateurs alike . The ease of use along with a ready supply of music lovers seemed like the obvious venue . Just the fact that I can throw up a music file and have it instantly available for the public to listen to if they so desire makes the whole experience so much easier than it was just a few years ago . All you need to do is sign up for a free account and you’re ready to go .
I also like to search for new music that I have never heard before . I do admit that worthwhile music is sometimes hard to fine just because it is so easy and available for everyone to upload absolutely any sound file they wish to share . The work that is put into preparing the file for public listening doesn’t really seem to matter . The quality can be really bad on some .
There are a lot of choices on SoundCloud . There are some genres that are new to me . You shouldn’t have any trouble finding one for your music file . You can also make your music available as a free download if you wish to promote your music by giving some of it away . If you have a link , you can add it , to lead the listener to a site that sells your music .
There is also copyrighted music that may or may not be legal . It is the responsibility of the one who uploads the music to make sure their sound file is not infringing on the rights of others . I have to say that I do not know if any files have ever been flagged for copyright infringement on SoundCloud , like it is done on YouTube . There are covers , mashups , as well as copyrighted music tracks that are used for new rap songs . Is this legal you may ask ? I would think only with permission and this may include some sort of payment being involved , so definitely research this subject and keep it legal !
When I find new talent it feels like I have found gold and hopefully in a small way , along with the visitors on this site , we will be able to give a little boost to their music career .
After surfing and searching around the internet I believe I have come across a new YouTube star .
Her looks and personality are definitely up to speed but even more important , her videos are interesting . That’s good because even the prettiest girls become boring after a while .
However Trayc is not boring and has what they call a presence in front of the camera . Her good looks , a good speaking voice , charisma and humor makes her videos well worth watching . Plus , her videos actually have substance and substance is something YouTube seems to be running short of .
If you haven’t viewed her yet than I”ll give you a little preview of Trayctvtime .
Her videos are fun to watch and very entertaining but like so many new and talented YouTube vloggers her views seem way too low for her level of talent . I would expect that on my videos but definitely not on Trayctvtime videos . YouTube is just hard to figure out . I believe her channel is definitely worth taking notice of and I encourage you to check her out . She adds a new video every Sunday or Monday .
Here is the link to Trayc Thompson’s YouTube channel .
Looking for new talent is tedious and time consuming . There have been a lot of times that I have spent hours combing the internet only to come up empty of a find that I felt was suitable for TOMORROW’S ROCK STAR .
I came across a video about a week or two ago that caught my attention . There is a lady who vlogs everyday for about a couple of minutes for something called a VEDA challenge . I’ll get back to that later. The video that drawed my attention is a video called Ice Queen Chronicles by Veltis Angel : Grow / Doing Fine . The song is sung by an actress and singer from New York . Her name is Laura Fay Lewis and her voice is perfect for this song . The name of the band who owns this song is The Blisstones , and again they are or were based in New York .
Have a listen here to The Ice Queen Chronicles Video with the song : Grow / Doing Fine
Like I mentioned before there is something called Veda Challenges on YouTube where YouTubers make an effort to make a short video vlog everyday of the month just so you can get to know them and also to force themselves to put out a short video on a regular basis. This seems like it would take a lot of self discipline especially since most people are just going to work and living a normal life . As it turns out , these videos can be interesting and entertaining .
One of these YouTube channels is Veltis Angel. This is where I came across the Ice Queen Chronicles with music by The Blisstones. I admire the way she puts herself out there . It’s nice to see people follow their dreams and YouTube is a great place to start . I enjoy seeing her Veda Challenge videos and wish her lots of success .
