With the ease of availability for artists to get their music out via the internet through avenues in the likes of Soundcloud, Soundclick and so many more the internet has become inundated with new artists and the competition to stand out above the crowd and be heard is fiercer than ever!
So how does one stand out in today's crowded market? Well of course, first of all your music has to be great. But that doesn't cut it, there are plenty of great artists out there. You have to be creative, you have to learn how to market well, and you have to give the people a reason why they should listen to you as quickly as possible before they move on to the countless others.
As an example I would like to introduce an artist I found a few days ago. He goes by the name Kxng KO and he comes out of Boston, Massachusetts. His creativity of infusing styles from EDM, Trap, Soul, and Dance music comes together with a polished professional sound.
In his words he describes his single “MMMX (SwingFlex) as “A TrapRap, Soul Infused dance ballad inspired by the theory of genetic reincarnation” You see that? The description is short and sweet and grabs your attention so that you are intrigued to what that could be about so that you listen. How can a dance ballad be inspired by the theory of genetic reincarnation? I had no clue, but I wanted to find out.
The song mixes revolutionary cries of homage to Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X and makes it pop and relevant with well executed simple but hard-hitting drums and a catchy background melody that strings the many elements going on this song together.
Fellow artists if you want to stand out in this highly competitive world of music, take some notes from this new single by Kxng KO. Make your own unique sound and make it polished and high quality. If you don't take your art seriously, why should anyone else? Be able to briefly catch the attention of your listeners. And work hard, there are too many great artists out there for you to rest on your laurels, you've got to work harder than the other great artists.
Also, use whatever you may have that is unique to you that you can connect with your listeners with. Because at the end of the day music is about human connection. Maybe you and your listeners both like gaming, or hiking, or pet bunnies? Or maybe you are also a great writer and you can start a really cool blog
