When I was in high school and college during the late 80s / early 90s, the best way to get information about my favorite musicians and their work was to scour magazines, newspapers, album liner notes, etc.
Now it is 2021. We have websites and social media. And the best way to get information about my favorite musicians and their work is… by scouring magazines, newspapers, liner notes, etc.
I know it is a rough time to be a musician. The pandemic eliminated concerts for the last year. Most people consume music by stealing it or streaming it, which, in terms of artist income, are almost identical.
But I think many musicians are missing an opportunity to talk about their music. So many band websites and social media accounts consist of just a few promo photos and then a pitch to buy stuff. Why not also use those properties to talk about your music, your songwriting, your recording experiences? I love reading about that stuff. I am guessing some other people do as well.
