Gone are the days when music lovers had to rely on the radio and record labels to find the best new thing. Instead of waiting to hear something fun and interesting that others have written, packaged and dished out like a hotdog in a factory, people have a little thing called the internet to help in their search for good, raw music.
Avid music fans can see all there is to see after a few minutes searching the latest offerings on YouTube. The simple website has shot countless people (many of questionable talent – hello Bieber) to fame simply because they get to show what they are made of in an easy-to-find format. Even more interesting are the YouTubers who choose to stay within that venue and not sign a record deal. Some of them are making a killing at it, and it’s changing the entire face of music. Keep a close eye on these new rock and pop stars who use YouTube as their delivery method of choice.
