Interesting, the invisible energy of connection and beyond
Bring back smoking in pubs and venues, open smaller venues again, pay a decent fee to the musicians, abolish all X-Factor/The Voice type programmes. More independent labels and agencies are needed.
False commercial crap. Closed doors, Inflated egos who can play but have nothing to say or express really. Piped Piper audiences or the general sheep.
A few decent and innovative artists and bands. Generally very bleak though.
People expect music for free, so its still hard to get a larger exposure to new and original music that is cutting and interesting. Either join a tribute band or play 'Blues' to the mass. Then you'll have your larger audience.
