I've given up on the idea of getting signed by a major label. An indie label, who actually cares about your music - maybe. But those dreams of getting swept off my feet by Sony and showcased to the world are over...
It boggles my mind that major labels are still around. With advances in technology, you can become successful in your living room! Just ask Justin Bieber.
Yes. That's what ruined music. The internet made it possible for any loser to get lucky and make music. And iTunes made it possible for said losers to sell bad music to kids who's parents pad their iTune accounts with cash.
Yeah, maybe it's because some people still hold onto that dream of 'getting signed' and breaking into the bigtime instantly. In a way that is what happened to Justin Bieber though, but it also demonstrates the ability of everyone to get noticed online. Lots of musicians have pretty popular youtube channels e.g. (Btw profesh-looking blog!)
