Freedom to express emotion, passion & drive. Music gives me power!
Tour the world and sell millions of records
I would bring British Guitar music back again to the official charts
There's too many to choose from.
Oasis, The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks
The troubles & anxiety of life
To never give up on your hopes & dreams and keep on fighting no matter how many people put you down the show must go on...
I think unsigned bands/artists should have a chance to play on the big stage
Ticks all the boxes for me and was very easy to use
The lack of support from big labels, artists etc and how expensive it is to record an album or single.
There is no local scene anymore as there's a community for all kinds of music these days
Firstly you need great catchy songs. Secondly you need contacts Thirdly a good image
Check out a Swedish Rock band called The Soundtrack of our Lives
