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 .

SoundCloud has become the amateur musicians best friend .

   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 .

Trayc Thompson of TraycTV Is A YouTube Star

 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 .

Ice Queen Chronicles by Veltis Angel : Grow / Doing Fine

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 .

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 .
