The power of social media has enabled the pub performer to the celebrity the ability to share their music globally.
Twitter lets musicians share links to videos or songs and to keep their support base up to date with upcoming gigs and recent news. For fans, refreshing their Twitter feed means they can be reading a post within seconds of their favourite celebrity sharing it.
The aim of this Twitter list is to expose the average man to the discovery of new Melbourne talent. In addition, various Australian organisations which endeavour to develop musician’s careers are included and not to mention trending music magazines to tell the latest goss.
