Whoever thought to break a new artist or single by putting it in a commercial, I gotta say, bravo. It’s definitely helped Indie type, alternative artists like Fun., Grouplove , Alex Clare and even American Idol’s, Blake Lewis is looking for a career resurgence with his upcoming release being featured in a Microsoft campaign.
Turns out, you can find out about new music in a lot of places nowadays. With the popularity of Napster in the early 2000’s, the creation of iTunes, the career starting YouTube and more, you’re actually surrounded by new music all the time…so, where do you find your new faves? A recent study said that radio is still the first place many go (thank you!)
But, not everything makes it to radio…either due to lack of popularity or just lack of release. My favorite song of the moment is actually one that was featured on The Bachelor and it spawned a brand new EP. It’s called “Crazy Beautiful,” from Andy Grammer. If you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet – do it; super catchy, fun and beautiful all at the same time. The EP ain’t too shabby either.
