Nashville, TN pop recording artist & songwriter sharing my thoughts on the music industry.
TikTok; The Future of Music?
Even if you're not an active user of social media, you've probably heard of an app called TikTok. This social media platform took off in the United States in 2017 and has steadily continued to grow in popularity. Users post videos up to 60 seconds in length, showcasing a wide range of subject matter. From comedy skits and "trending" dance routines to makeup artists and photographers sharing their talents, it is a ridiculously entertaining stream of random content that will suck you in. You'll begin scrolling through your "For You" page and suddenly realize 30 minutes have seemingly vanished.
Coronavirus & Recording Artists
The music industry is currently enduring one of the worst blows in history. As a pop recording artist engaged in the Nashville music scene, I can attest to this firsthand from my experience and from watching how this epidemic has affected my friends. Since the cancellation of every tour and one-off show, artists, band members, and touring crews are sitting at home. Music Row, which is home to many record labels, publishing houses, and recording studios, has gone dark. So has every honky-tonk that makes up Broadway, Nashville's most popular tourist attraction. It's an offbeat time here in Music City.
