What could have been is an incredible question. Back in the day, an artist would walk into a radio station. They would have a copy of their new music. Handing this brand spanking new album to the DJ for a first listen. this was something that had people run crank the volume. New music!
So many artists have not had this opportunity. Thanks to the growth of social media. Artists have had an opportunity with self promotion, viral content and fan usage to grow and get recognized.
Be unheard no more! From my desk is a series each week where we showcase bands and music that you may have never heard before. #weareunheard
