Sing with Piccolo has launched its first ever blog! After the launch of our new website and new music a few months ago, along with re-branding our social media platforms over the last couple of months, we're finally at the point to start up a blog.
Although our main focus is children's music, and I assure you we will give updates about what's happening with us, I want to not only write about and feature artists and leaders in the industry to help growth, but also talk honestly about the struggles we have and are having on a daily basis in this ever changing industry.
Anyone linked to music in any way knows that streaming and digitalisation has completely transformed the way we are operating as a music business. This means we are swimming in completely new waters with entirely different fish. Gone are the days where we would set up a CD stand in our music sessions, now we have to search and compare which distributors are most efficient to promote our music and on which platforms. There's so much out there at the moment for comparing distributors, how to market yourself as a musician and how to playlist yourself. BUT what does this mean for a children's music artist? The problem is with all of these articles is that they're written heavily for the 'traditional' musician and 'indie' artists- what we want to do is write and discuss how WE adapt this to our genre.
