In today’s world, social media has become a popular platform for musicians to show their talents to the public eye. This phenomenon has helped many artists share their songs; gain an increasing amount of followers, with the hope that their music will get noticed. With websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Soundcloud, the competition is now stronger than ever for musicians to stand out and progress in the music industry.
Hey guys, I’m Jena. I am one amongst many local musicians in Melbourne who are working, creating and performing music. It is a real achievement to not only write, record and release it to the world, but ultimately, to have our music be inspirational to others. Throughout my experiences, I have met many passionate musicians whose work has amazed me and I have always wondered why the public have not been exposed to such extraordinary talent.
The Real Songwriters of Melbourne is a Melbourne music initiative designed to give artists the opportunity to share their story and their music. In its third year of running, The Real Songwriters of Melbourne has commenced PR services where artists can now take a step further into spreading the word about an event that they are hosting. Beginning May 2016, RSOM Live gave artists the opportunity to perform live in front of an intimate crowd of family, friends, fans and media representatives bringing them from the computer out into the vibrant Melbourne music scene.
We also has seen featured artists gain an increasing amount of followers, interviews with leading publications and many more. The most rewarding thing is as Editor of RSOM is to see the progression of the artist from the first time we meet and to me, that is what makes RSOM so enjoyable and rewarding.
What makes RSOM so unique is that we like to focus on artists who may not already have an online profile, or who would like to grow a sound fan base as opposed to those who already get countless features. We want your music to be heard!
I am very proud of what RSOM has achieved today and I hope you will be as well. Please support Melbourne’s live music scene and help protect the rights of Australian musicians.
