I was recently invited to read a spreadsheet full of the comments and scores from 150 “industry experts” and their opinions of a song. The reviews ranged from 1 out of 10 to 10 out of 10 and everything in between. They ranged from “love” to “hate”, from “radio hit” to “flop”, and from “annoying song” to “stroke of genius”.
I don’t think anyone would argue with me that the music marketplace is more crowded than ever. With the advent of digital audio workstations like ProTools and Logic, almost anyone with a computer can create a record and sell it on iTunes. This comes with both positives and negatives, which is not the aim of this article to explore. But what I do want to briefly dive into is how you can stand out in a very crowded room without resorting to crazy antics.
On this episode, I interview my good friend, Sean Hill. Sean is a songwriter, artist, and producer in the Atlanta area.
