These Are the Best Songs to Help You Get Over a BreakupИсточник: https://time.com/5287962/best-breakup-songs/
So you’re going through a breakup. The bad news: it’s never easy. The good news: you’re not alone with your aching heart. If the music we listen to is any indication, then breaking up, feeling down about it and hopefully finding the courage to move on are some of the most common shared human experiences. As centuries of forlorn singletons have learned and generations of songwriters have mastered, one of the best cures for heartbreak is the balm of music that speaks to our souls — or maybe helps us rationalize away the tears.
“Heartache is what motivates many artists to write songs in the first place,” explains Spotify’s trends expert Shanon Cook to TIME; there are over half a million breakup-themed playlists on the platform alone. “Some people might not want or know how to articulate how they’re feeling during a rough time,” Cook adds. “Maybe it’s nice to let Sam Smith or Kelly Clarkson express it for you.”
While some classics remain timeless in their appeal — songs like Beyoncé‘s “Irreplaceable,” Adele‘s “Someone Like You” and Kelly Clarkson‘s “Since U Been Gone” remain the top three most popular additions to breakup-themed playlists on Spotify, for instance — 2018 and recent years have their own new music to throw into the heartbreak-and-recovery mix. There’s The Weeknd‘s appropriately dejected songs from his new EP My Dear Melancholy, for instance, and some powerful tunes from the past year by pop queens St. Vincent, Lorde, Kesha and P!nk, to name just a few.
As Cook notes, you can pretty much slot breakup songs into two categories: “raw, tender tracks that tap into the fragility of the human heart” (think: Adele), or “dismissive, I-don’t-care-I’m-so-over-you type of songs” (here’s where Clarkson would come in). “Interestingly, a great many of the popular songs in break-up-themed playlists are pop songs and the artists, for the most part, are big celebrities,” Cook continues, suggesting that we often turn to familiar, beloved artists when we’re going through a rough time.
Below, TIME has pulled together a list of some of the most popular breakup songs on those Spotify playlists, as well as some under-the-radar favorites that might just come in handy when dealing with a broken heart. Here’s to moving on — eventually.
“Call Out My Name,” The Weeknd
When The Weeknd dropped an EP My Dear Melancholy in March 2018, he had not one but two breakups to pour out into his dark, moody R&B. On “Call Out My Name,” his raw heartbreak comes through loud and clear. “I almost cut a piece of myself for your life / Guess I was just another pit stop.” At least we can commiserate with The Weeknd, who’s going through it right alongside the rest of us.
“Chelsea Hotel #2,” Leonard Cohen
Some heartbreak is predicated on just a few powerful moments. “You got away, didn’t you babe?” Cohen recalls in this simple, poetic ode to a love affair gone awry. “I never once heard you say, ‘I need you.'” Time marches on, the moment passes, and we’re left with Cohen’s evocative memories.
“Stay,” Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko
As it turns out, Rihanna can turn on the tears just as well as she can pump up the party. “Stay,” her 2012 collaboration with singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko, is an aching, searching ballad that lets her lead in an expressive push and pull duet. “The reason I hold on / ’cause I need this hole gone
/ Funny you’re the broken one / but I’m the only one who needed saving,” they join together to sing — an apt description of how we can get it twisted.
“Heartbeats,” José González
Sweet and dreamy, González’s “Heartbeats” sounds like what a warm bath feels like at the end of a long, hard day. Let his subtle guitar and rolling voice take you away.
“Love Yourself,” Justin Bieber
It was a song that ruled airwaves — and, in its simplicity of construction and catchiness of refrain, remains timeless. When you’re ready to move on, “Love Yourself” should be on repeat. Because as Bieber tells us, “And now I know, I’m better sleeping on my own.”
“Ain’t No Sunshine,” Bill Withers
This Bill Withers classic tells it like it is, in signature blues style with its haunting instrumentation. “Only darkness when she’s gone,” he croons. “And this house just ain’t a home any time she goes away.”
“Skinny Love,” Bon Iver
For a little bit of folk salvation, turn to Bon Iver, whose evocative strums and lilting voice speak straight to the soul. “I tell my love to wreck it all
/ Cut out all the ropes and let me fall,” he mourns. “And now all your love is wasted / And then who the hell was I?” Sometimes we can’t be the people we want to be in love; sometimes they can’t be the people we want them to be, either.
“Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright,” Bob Dylan
A little harmonica, a little Dylan poetry, and you’re well on your way to recovery. Some things just aren’t meant to be. “It ain’t not use in turning on your light, babe / I’m on the dark side of the road,” he shrugs. Go ahead, shrug it off with him.
“Someone Like You,” Adele
Sit down. Grab the Kleenex. Cue up “Someone Like You.” This is the ritual of heartbreak. Adele’s range evokes every shade of pain, regret and nostalgia. “For me, it isn’t over,” she admits. And yet: “Never mind, I’ll find someone like you,” she fights on.
“Stitches,” Shawn Mendes
When you’re still in the thick of it, turn to young crooner Mendes, who sings like he means it. “Just like a moth drawn to a flame, you lured me in, I couldn’t sense the pain,” he sighs. Yet stitches suggests that things are soon to be on the mend.
“Back to Black,” Amy Winehouse
The jazzy swing of “Back to Black” belies the darkness of Winehouse’s challenging mixed emotions. “We only said goodbye with words / I died a hundred times,” she croons. Some failures hurt every time.
“Somebody That I Used to Know,” Gotye
Given a little time and introspection, perhaps the relationship wasn’t so perfect after all. That’s what Gotye and Kimbra are here to tell us on the insidious and light 2011 breakout hit “Somebody That I Used to Know.” “Told myself that you were right for me / But felt so lonely in your company / But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember,” Gotye sings: even the frustrations come with their lingering appeal, despite it all.
“Let Her Go,” Passenger
Passenger has a sweet, light touch on “Let Her Go” that will be soothing to anyone mourning a relationship’s end. “‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low / Only miss the sun when it starts to snow / Only know you love her when you let her go,” he sings. Yes: we always want what we can’t have. That bittersweet truth is something we just have to sit with.
“Stay With Me,” Sam Smith
After a breakup, it might not be a bad idea to just play both of Sam Smith‘s albums on back-to-back repeat for a few days — if your heart can handle it. That’s what the British crooner is best at: tapping into that emotional ache and wringing every bit of beautiful sound out of it. When you’re still in the thick of the regret stage, turn to “Stay With Me” to say in song everything you want to say out loud. The melody is so pretty that humming along might help you feel just a little better.
“To the left, to the left / everything you own in a box to the left.” In this 2006 classic and breakup mainstay, Beyoncé wrote the playbook on kicking someone out — and when the Queen speaks, it’s worth listening. The gentle R&B ballad is a reminder to value yourself first; let the partners make their own mistakes.
“I Fall Apart,” Post Malone
Post Malone’s big hit may be titled “rockstar,” but it turns out that the bulk of his work is actually not about living the good life. Instead, the Texan singer-songwriter has a knack for setting his heartbreak and emotional vulnerability to music. Exhibit A: “I Fall Apart,” a warbling, raw slow-jam that falls somewhere between ballad and R&B: “Try to brush it off but it keep on goin’ / All these scars can’t help from showing,” he sings, a reminder that self-medication is not always an answer.
“New York,” St. Vincent
Indie darling St. Vincent knows how to hit the emotional pain points on “New York,” her balladic ode to a relationship long gone, and the city that’s changed around her. “New York isn’t New York without you love,” she admits. “I have lost a hero / I have lost a friend / But for you, darling I’d do it all again.” For anyone who’s stayed in place while others have moved on, the soaring, simple tune should hit home.
“Happier,” Ed Sheeran
Turn to Ed Sheeran for that moment when you know your lover has moved on. And it’s a good thing. And yet. “Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you / but ain’t nobody need you like I do,” he reflects on this down-tempo ballad. It’s a moment of resigning yourself to fate, but also accepting that feelings remain.
“Fix You,” Coldplay
Chris Martin kicks things off with a gut punch: “When you try your best, but you don’t succeed / When you get what you want, but not what you need / When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep / Stuck in reverse… When you love someone but it goes to waste / Could it be worse?” Not by much, no. Thankfully we have the soothing chords of Coldplay to wash over us.
“Retrograde,” James Blake
James Blake’s haunting hum of a voice on “Retrograde” and the staticky buzz of the production in the background feels like a hymn. Is it a love song or a song of yearning? Maybe a bit of both, but dark enough to match a heartbreak mood anyway. “We’re alone now,” he intones. “Ignore everybody else, we’re alone now.”
“What About Us,” P!nk
P!nk has always made big, stadium-ready anthems. “What About Us” is that, but for the outcasts and the lovelorn, a purely beautiful melody amped up by her powerful voice and insistent questions. “What about us? What about the plans that ended in disaster?” she wonders. “What about love? What about trust? What about us?” She may not have the answers, but her music is a good place to start.
Few songs of 2017 pack as much emotional wallop as Kesha’s powerful comeback ballad. “You brought the flames and you put me through hell, I had to learn how to fight for myself,” she admits. But ultimately it’s a song of redemption and healing — with a whistle note good enough to break glass.
“Dreaming with a Broken Heart,” John Mayer
Mayer’s sweet piano ballad is a masterful ode to the broken-hearted. “Is she standing in my room? No she’s not, cause she’s gone, gone, gone, gone,” he sighs. At least his warm, soothing voice is right there with you.
“Fireworks,” First Aid Kit
“Why do I do this to myself?” croon the Swedish folk-singing sisters of First Aid Kit. “Every time, I know the way it ends.” Their song is a lullaby and a balm: we may not learn from our mistakes, but at least we’re not alone in making them.
“Act III: The Reason,” Dennis Lloyd
Don’t blame yourself for what went wrong. In fact, suggests Israeli singer-songwriter Dennis Lloyd, feel free to put it all on the other person. “Act III: The Reason” has an unbeatable, just-dark-enough electro-pop beat and a refrain that bears repeating once you’ve washed your hands of someone who’s done you wrong: “I’m not the reason that you walk away / baby I’m not / I’m not the reason / take all your bags and get the hell away / baby I’m not the reason.”
“Green Light,” Lorde
Lorde balances anger and confidence in equal measure on “Green Light,” an exuberant dance anthem that comes out of a dark place. She’s mad, but she’s over it, just waiting for her spirit to catch up with her mind. “Did it frighten you / How we kissed when we danced on the light up floor?” she taunts her ex. Lesson learned: if you can’t keep up with Lorde, don’t even try to date her.
“Since U Been Gone,” Kelly Clarkson
Clarkson’s classic pop-rock breakup jam is the ultimate I’m-over-it-now singalong song. If you haven’t rocked out to the chorus at full volume at least once in your life, well, you’ve probably never had your heart broken and made it to the other side.
“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Taylor Swift
Swift knows a thing or two about moving on. In this 2012 Red album classic, she channels her relatable experiences into the talk-singing that made it a hit. Shout it from the mountaintops along with her: “You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me, but we / are never ever ever getting back together.”
“Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!),” Blu Cantrell
R&B singer Blu Cantrell takes no prisoners on her memorable 2009 jam “Hit ‘Em Up Style.” It’s as good of an after-breakup playbook as any — if your situation suggests it’s time to get even, instead of getting sad (or mad). “There goes the love we had, but you cheated on me, and that’s for that now,” she chants. “For all the lies you told, this is what you’re owed.” Payback hurts.
“New Rules,” Dua Lipa
“One, don’t pick up the phone / he’s only calling cause he’s drunk and alone.” On her breakout hit, Dua Lipa laid down the law about how to get over someone who is lingering in your life — even though you know it’s high time they hit the road. Listen, memorize and apply to your own life as needed.
“Survivor,” Destiny’s Child
It’s time to pick your head up. From the opening strains of “Survivor,” Destiny’s Child proves that they have made the enduring after-breakup-anthem that the world needs. Take it away, Beyoncé: “Now that you’re out of my life, I’m so much better / You thought that I’d be weak without you, but I’m stronger / You thought that I’d be broke without you, but I’m richer / You thought that I’d be sad without you, I laugh harder.” And repeat.
“Dancing On My Own,” Robyn
“Somebody said you got a new friend. Does she love you better than I can?” iconic Swedish pop singer Robyn wants to know. But follow Robyn’s advice: dance all night. Dance on your own. Who needs anyone else, anyway? Love hurts, but dancing heals.More Must-Read Stories From TIME

This month, to celebrate the Internet’s unbridled love for wallowing in nostalgia and even greater relishing of talking about why certain cultural artifacts are horrible, Sound of the City presents First Worsts, a series in which our writers remember the first time… they ever hated a song enough to call it The Worst. (And to be fair, we’re also going to see how these songs have stood the test of time.)
THE SONG: Bryan Adams, “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You.”
THE YEAR: 1991.
THE REASONS: Being extremely lovey-dovey, cracking my cool exterior.
If there was one thing I loved as a child, it was movies with swashbuckling. The swords could have been wielded by Errol Flynn or Dolph Lundgren (remember the giant space sword he had when he played He-Man?)—even Star Wars is, in its way, a movie about swordfighting. (Laser swordfighting.) In 1991, the epic, awesome movie about swords and arrows and castles Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves came out, and I loved it. Which meant that I heard its love theme, Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” many, many times.
Bryan Adams, “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You”
If I’m being honest, the worst offense of “(Everything I Do)” is that it’s kind of good. Adams’ voice is gravelly in a fun “overcome with emotion” kind of way. It has a big guitar solo in the middle. In the video, Adams strolls through the woods, hangs out in Robin Hood’s camp in Sherwood Forest, and sings in front of a waterfall, surrounded by fog. Clips from the movie of flaming arrows and swords are spliced in—making it about as metal as a video for acid-washed-jean balladry can get.
So, OK, I loved it. But at the same time, even though I was only eight, I knew it was crap. My older brother was in punk bands—I’d watched him play keytar in our garage wearing a skinny tie while knowing, deep in my heart, that nothing could possibly be cooler. I spent my childhood thumbing over his band’s cassette, which had a Xeroxed cover that showed a hamster being strangled. I only listened to it once, and it scared the hell out of me.
What was I to do about this whole Bryan Adams thing? Overcompensate. I hated that song as much as an eight-year-old without anyone with whom to discuss pop music could, which is to say quietly but very deeply and truly. It ruined my swords and arrows movie, and it exposed my secret love of crap.
In the summer of 1991, my family spent the summer of 1991 on its longest family vacation ever. We wound from Florida, up through to Pennsylvania, then into New York City and upstate New York, before finally arriving Montreal, where my sister famously looked out a window at a French street sign and excitedly said it was “just like being in another country!” I’m not quite 30 and probably too young to talk about how things were “in my day,” but in terms of in-car entertainment 1991 was certainly another era. There were no iPods or iPads, no cell phones, no in-car DVDs—not even a CD player. For entertainment, there were two basic options. One of them was listen to my mother and sister taking turns reading to me from Mrs. Piggle Wiggle and Anne of Green Gables paperbacks that we’d had for a few decades longer than I’d been alive. The other was the radio, and every few hours, we would hit a new station. “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” was the top song on the year-end Billboard Hot 100, which meant that the trip went from being a simple family vacation to being an endless battery of four-minute-plus tests of my resolve to be cool.
I did not do well. I could not deny myself. I came home from that trip deliriously in love with love, with schmaltz, with power ballads. I used to tell my friends at recess how much I had hated and then loved that song; these conversations are the first time I remember someone telling me, “Yeah, I’ve heard that story before, Chris.” When I called my mother to research this piece, and I told her what song I’d be writing about, the first thing she said was, “Oh, I remember how much you loved that song!”
SO HOW IS IT NOW?
I have listened to “(Everything I Do)” many more times than was strictly necessary while writing this piece, and I sang it in line at the grocery store so loudly that the guy behind me in line interrupted me to tell me I was doing a good job. My mother’s memories, as it turns out, were not wrong, nor are they out of date.About us

My brother and I cannot listen to this song as it brings us to tears because it reminds us so much of our sister Penny who was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia.
There was always something a bit "off" with her when we were growing up, but we never knew she was so deeply disturbed and it esclilated into delusions and hallucinations where she ultimately began to believe that Bryan Adams wrote this song for her.
It all began when she started to believe that a particular T.V. show was being written and or produced by by someone speaking directly to her. It actually began before that in believing that certain online communities and blogs were directly speaking to her.
We had to have an intervention when
she began to "self-medicate" to "quiet the voices" by drinking herself into oblivion. Finally, she confided in me and told me that she believed that Bryan Adams had been completely and intimately involved in her life and the part where he sings, "walk the wire for you" meant that he was sending her messages through various media outlets and that this proved that everything he did was for her. She said that when she first began to believe that someone intimately knew her was when someone said she loved outter space because she deeply did since forever...we used to call her sailor moon. She just knew deep inside her heart that this one person knew her like no other but she said she racked her brain trying to figure it out.
I won't get into all the particulars but the elaborate story she had created in her head along with lethal concoctions of daily wine, it became apparent she had lost it.
The breaking point came when she said that satellites were watching her every move, that the television not only was talking to her but could see her too and that even some character in some T.V. show was supposed to be about her and Bryan Adams.
We deepy are concerned about her mental health, my brother and I, and hope you all keep her in your paryers and if you know someone in such a state, help them out. Schizophrenia is a devastating disorder to have to deal with as it forces those who care about the sufferer to clarify and provide reality checks to the individual delusions.
For instance, when she went into some drunken rant about Bryan Adams, my brother had to walk her back through to reality by telling her the truth of the situation. It was almost like I could see a glimmer of hope in her eyes that she was finally closer to the truth, but it soon faded as she folded her knees up to her chest and began to rock back and forth mumbling strange phrases such as, Bryan Adams has been following me which inspires him into some strange force-field of creative energy flow which he has left little bread-crumbs for her to find that confirms he loves her. There really is no hope, only heavy medication, padded rooms, and self-denial.
Hope this helps!Источник: https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/robin-hood-prince-of-thieves-bryan-adams-everything-i-do-song-soundtrack/
But in ’91? It’s doubtful even Adams and Lange anticipated they were making the biggest hit of the rocker’s career. “Everything I Do” was a single many pop acts initially turned down, but by the end of that year it would spend 16 consecutive weeks at the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart—which is still the longest uninterrupted run ever—and 17 consecutive weeks on the U.S. sales chart (it would also enjoy seven weeks at number one on Billboard’s Hot 100, which combines sales and radio play).
Our own UK editor Rosie Fletcher recalled the delight millions of Brits had each Sunday when the Adams single was revealed again to be the most purchased and listened to pop hit.
“In the UK in 1991 the official top 40 was a Big Deal,” Fletcher says, “and much attention was paid to what was at number one on any given week. So much so, that many of us of a certain age would listen to the charts on the radio on a Sunday night, ideally on a tape deck with a blank C90 in hand. That way you could basically make your own mixtape of the charts that you could listen how much to open checking account bank of america throughout the week so you were guaranteed to know all the words to the most popular hits. There was no Spotify. Most people didn’t have MTV. This was the ‘90s equivalent of a download.”
She continues, “For this reason you will find an entire generation of Brits who know, without hesitation or looking it up, that ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ was at number one in the UK charts for 16 weeks. 16 weeks! That was a MASSIVE deal. So massive, that every week when it was STILL number one, we’d be amazed! How long will this go on? How long can it last?! Everything i do i do it for you music video we would phone each other up on our landline telephones to discuss how amazed we were and we’d chat about it at school with our friends or on the bus, because there was no Twitter or Facebook or comments section to have an opinion about it on… That song was a legit cultural phenomenon and I still know every word.”
It cannot be overstated just how popular “Everything I Do” was that year. With its wistful guitar strings and angelic keyboard harmonies, the piece still oozes sweeping sentimentality and unabashed romance. It was so big, in fact, that for the VHS release of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Warner Bros. Pictures placed the single’s original music video over the end credits—a fact which either the studio or Adams might’ve regretted since it is absent on subsequent DVD releases, and the only music video on YouTube is the one without clips of Costner’s well-coiffed hair.
For adults of a certain age—the ones who can remember the early ‘90s from the vantage of being everything i do i do it for you music video teenager or a child—Adams’ earnest bridge where he vows, “Yeah, I’d fight for you, I’d lie for you, walk the wire for you, yeah, I’d die for you!” is as entrenched in the memory as a national anthem.New Trend 2021BuyИсточник: https://www.musicindustryhowto.com/6-top-ways-to-promote-your-music-that-actually-work/
So I've already written a free complete ebook introducing people to music marketing, and even created one of the (if not THE) best courses around on promoting your music.
That said, today I wanted to go a step further and bring you in on some hard hitting strategies that will gain you more fans, and that actually work in this day and age.
There are too many dated articles out there which talk about promoting your music. Many of them simply share old information which didn't work that well at it's peak.
Many of them give smaller results than they're worth. Today though, I'm going to cover 6 things you can do to better promote your music.
Marketing your music is essential if you want to get your name out there and actually start making money from your talent, so if these are some of your aims, be sure to read and implement as much of this guide as humanly possible.
In other words, all of it. 😉
And if you find it useful, please share it with friends or talk about it on your website. So, let's get into the promotion tips.
Note: If you want to save time and would rather pay someone to promote your music for you, here’s an affordable promo company our readers have had good success with.
But first, if it's your aim to do music professionally, you'll want to check out our free ebook while it's still available:
1. Market Yourself As A Business To Business Musician
Ok, so here's a huge tip I can give you:
Instead of focusing all of your efforts on reaching out to all your fans individually, focus a lot more of your efforts on building up good relationships with other businesses!
So I know some of you will be wondering what I mean by this.
What I mean is that you should spend a good portion of your time contacting event organizers, radio stations, websites that cover your genre of music in some way, TV channels, DJs, musicians who are more established than you, and the like.
What do all of the above have in common? They have a much bigger audience than you, and within their audiences are people who will fit into your ideal fan base!
While a lot of musicians spend lots of time grinding it out trying to make new fans one by one, more successful and full time musicians often spend jose marti statue central park time building up relationships with people who can get their music out there better than they can.
The thing is, if you get in good with bigger companies and they recommend you to their audience, you'll get a lot more exposure from that one article / event / show / interview than you would from spending a month on Facebook and Twitter trying to get new fans from scratch.
That's why it's worth investing time and effort into forming these kinds of relationships.
Now I'm not saying don't market to fans individually. You should, but usually only once they're already on your social sites and mailing list.
In terms of actually getting people to hear you the first time around, getting other established businesses to promote you is one of the best ways to go about doing this.
So switch your target audience and start focusing more of your efforts on other businesses. And remember, as a musician, you are a business!
2. Focus A Good Portion Of Your Time On Gigging
Gigging is one of those golden activities every musician should be doing! Not only can it be great for raising awareness of your brand, but it can also be monetized in multiple ways, and help you build a strong relationship with your core audience.
Now playing gigs isn’t anything new or ‘out there'. That said, it's something that works, and works well.
In terms of promotion, some of the best gigs you can do are events which have other acts in your genre also playing at the event. This will mean the audience will contain one or two types of people who you'll want to target:
- Fans of other musicians in your genre, or
- Fans of your genre in general.
For gaining NEW fans, this is the kind of audience you want! While for increased revenue you'd want to put on your own gigs and make it all about you, you won't get very many people first discovering your music at these kind of gigs.
Because of this, they won't do much in terms of increasing your fanbase. When playing at shows with multiple artists however, you have a good chance to get your music in front of new targeted music fans.
Gigging is great for both gaining new fans and making money from the music industry, so be sure to get your gigging game on!
3. Post Content Regularly On Your Own Professional Website
With so many new acts coming out every day, it can be hard to stay top-of-mind.
Yes, someone might hear one of your songs and like what you're doing, but if you don't keep giving them more content and keep them entertained in some form of another, there's a good chance that they may forget you.
It's because of this that you'll want to take advantage of your website, and employ a good blade runner m emmet walsh marketing‘ strategy.
Content marketing as described on Wikipedia is:
“any marketing format that involves the creation and sharing of media and everything i do i do it for you music video content in order to acquire customers”
In other words, you want to use your content to get in new fans and to keep existing fans happy.
But what kind of content can you publish? Here are some types of content you should be creating:
- Songs. This is the obvious one.
- Videos. Another obvious one.
- Blog posts to do with your music career. So what you're working on, where you'll be performing, asking fans for their opinions on things, etc.
- Blog posts related to your genre of music. You can get a lot of people finding out about you by publishing content related to your genre as a whole rather than just you as a musician. More on this later.
As I mentioned, the majority of content should initially be going on your own website. You can also post useful information about cheap medicines on your website. This will help build your website up into a valuable asset, and one that will go a long way to getting new fans as well as keeping existing ones happy.
If you haven't yet made a site, you can see how to make one here.
4. Be More Than A Musician
This is a big one, so listen up. If you want to get as much exposure for your music as possible, you'll really want to make yourself more than just a musician!
What do I mean by this? Well, you want to do everything you can to get yourself out there and in front of a targeted audience.
And by everything, I mean things that aren't directly related to promoting yourself as a musician (but that will still get new targeted eyes to you and your music).
The good news for you is, not many musicians are doing this. This means there are a lot of opportunities out there if you use this tactic correctly.
Some ways you can do this include:
Talking About More Than Just Your Music On Your Site
Remember the above point about posting more content on your site?
Well who's to say that you have to talk about you all the time?
By talking about other acts and your genre of music in general, not only do you have more content to share with your audience, but you'll have more things which you can rank for in search engines.
This will mean more traffic to your site in the long-run, as you'll be using relevant terms which people will be searching for to find your kind of music. This strategy is definitely worth using, so get started with it asap!
Creating A Platform Related To Your Genre Of Music
This is something I've talked about and helped people do in my other guides. So taking the above theory even further, why not create a website or podcast which you target at people who like your kind of music?
This can be a music review podcast, a radio show which showcases your genre, or even a website which generally covers everything in your music scene. Furthermore, it could everything i do i do it for you music video be something not 100% related to your genre that a lot of people in your genre also like.
So if you make music skateboarders often listen to, you may want to make a skateboarding site and play your music on the site and in the videos.
You'll also want to include a shop page where people can buy your music, and possibly even start selling skateboarder related merchandise with your logo on it.
Doing these kinds of things will get you in front of people you wouldn't have otherwise, and allow you to showcase your music to new people who are largely interested in your genre.
5. Use A Mailing List
As my regular readers will know, I've been banging on about this for as long as this site has been around.
Having a newsletter which people can join is one of the best ways to not only communicate with fans, but to also build up relationships with them and turn those relationships into profitable ones.
Once people visit your website, the last thing you want them to do is leave and never return again. This everything i do i do it for you music video where mailing lists come in!
If you can get people to sign up to your list before they leave, you'll have their email address. From here you can communicate with them on a weekly basis, and remind them about you and your music.
The following strategy on swapping their email address for a freebie works very well.
If you haven’t set your own newsletter up yet, you can see how to do so here.
6. Never Make Any Weak Moves!
Ok, so this one is more of a tip of how not to promote your music. That said, focusing on not losing fans is just as important as gaining new fans (I should have made that point 7 ;)).
If you can make good songs but also make the occasional dud, it's important to know what to do with that dud song. Even if you're spent money to record it, don't use it.
Don't give it out to fans. Instead, put it in a deep folder in your computer that will never be found by anyone!
This song will do you more harm than good, and work at chipping away at your reputation.
Similarly, when you're starting to do well, it's easy to want to scale up quick, or rinse and repeat what's been working for you. This is a good idea, but only if you don't let the quality of what you're doing slide.
In general, you want to avoid doing anything that will have a negative impact on your reputation. You want people to think of you as one of the best musicians in your genre, and you want to give people who haven’t heard you before the best first impression.
If you're putting out weak songs though or weak artwork, a percentage of people will first hear you through that weak song, and possibly never give you another chance.
So keep everything you're doing to a consistently high level, and people will regard you as a higher quality of musician.
7. Make Great Music
If you don’t make great music, nothing will ever change in your music career. As an independent musician, you’re fighting an uphill battle by default.
You’re competing for the attention of people who are constantly being bombarded with top 40 chart-topping hits. The bottom line is this – if you don’t go above and beyond the call of duty to write incredible music, your chances of being noticed are slim.
You need to “wow” people with your music to draw them in!
My friend, Hello Moth, recently co-wrote a song that became a hit. And you know what he said? “After all this time, it’s still about having one good song.”
If you’ve been in the music industry for any length of time, you’ve heard that before. To make everything i do i do it for you music video big, you just need one song that captures people.
As it turns out, this is still relevant advice today.
Additionally, without great music, a lot of the strategies mentioned in this guide won’t work for you. Gigging is great, and it will help you make money and improve as a performer, but if you don’t make music people care about, it doesn’t matter how often you play.
You can make as many industry connections as you want, but if they don’t feel like your music is up to their standards, there’s no incentive for them to help you promote it.
There is a fanbase for every type of music, but finding your audience is a lot of work. So it makes good sense that you’ll more readily stand behind a quality product than a product that’s subpar.
And the same goes for your fans and the connections you make too. They'll support something that's great, but not something that's just okay.
8. Define Roles Within Your Band Or Hire A Team To Help
If you’re in a band, then you need to figure out who can do what in terms of creating content, managing your social media sites, marketing, updating your website, and so on. If you’re a solo artist, you need to build a team.
And building a team is ultimately something you’ll want to do regardless of the size of your act.
You can either divide the work between you if you make music with others, but if you're a solo musician you can use companies and services to help you out. For example use a music promotion company to get your music out there, Upwork to find freelancers who can help with admin, and the like.
Is there someone in your band that’s great with social media? Fantastic – have them manage your online presence.
Is there someone else that’s technically proficient, and has all the gear necessary to record videos? Great, get them to start making engaging content for YouTube.
There’s always the chance that no one in your band knows the first thing about marketing or building a website. First and foremost, you are a musician, so you may not have many strengths outside of playing an instrument or singing.
The key is to figure out what everyone’s good at, and what they’re interested in learning. It doesn’t make sense to force a band member into doing something they don’t even want to do, so determining everyone’s strengths upfront is an important step.
This is something the band The Middle Coast does very well, and if you go to the contact page on their website, you can even see that each member has a clearly defined role – Dylan and Roman handle booking, and Liam does everything else.
It’s simple, but it works.
Then, as you become more successful, and first hawaiian bank guam online build a bit of a budget, you’re going to want to start growing your team. As a starting point, you can outsource tasks you don’t like doing or ones you’re not good at.
This gives you more time to focus on creating. Working with freelancers and contractors is a good way to get started, and you can find plenty of them on Upwork.
When you’re ready, you can start working with publicists, booking agents, managers, and so on.
The reason this works is because it gives you a foundation from which to execute your marketing strategy in a coordinated, organized, consistent way. And consistency is key when it comes to spreading the word coldwell banker homes unlimited claremont nh your music.
9. Find A Great Publicist & Work Closely With Them
If you’ve ever listened to Music Business Radio, you’ll notice that there is a common theme among some of the most successful artists – most if not all of them work with a publicist!
Things have changed a lot with public relations (PR) in recent years. Online press releases used to help you get the attention of the media, for potential interviews and news coverage.
Today, press releases actually do more to boost your SEO – they help you rank for particular keywords, and when they’re published and distributed to a large everything i do i do it for you music video of sites, you also get links pointing back to your site!
To overcome obscurity as an artist, it takes more than just luck and being at the right place at the right time.
Gigging might lead to some great exposure opportunities, but chances are everything i do i do it for you music video won’t, unless you’re playing well-known venues, or venues where industry people are known to gather.
You need to create newsworthy stories on a regular basis, engage the media, and develop awareness for your music, tours, special events, releases, awards, and so on.
A lot of artists wonder about the effectiveness of getting coverage on music blogs, podcast and radio interviews, or entertainment magazines. To be fair, you won’t have access to the best publications when you’re just getting started.
But there are two things you need to keep in mind:
- Content that goes up online often stays up for a long time. This gives people an opportunity to discover you over and over and over again, long after the publish date.
- You’re building connections with industry influencers. Once in their good graces, you would have to screw it up pretty bad to fall out of their graces. If they like you, they’ll keep covering you, and they may even be able to connect you with other industry people, or provide you with resources that can help you.
10. Capture Behind-The-Scenes Footage & Share It With Your Fans
Video is a bank of america unemployment debit card ky promotional tool. But the right kind of video? That makes all the difference.
One thing that’s fascinating to fans – and will always be fascinating to fans – is the recording process. There’s a lot of mystery and intrigue about the gear being used, mic techniques, how certain sounds were achieved, and so on.
And even if not for that, people love to see how their favorite songs came together in the first place.
These types of videos are great for your fans, because they offer insights into who you are as well as their favorite music, but can also convert new fans, because they see you putting in the hard work to create a great product.
Music is a strange thing, and first impressions may stay with you, but they aren’t always right.
I remember not liking Rush when I first heard them, mostly because of Geddy Lee’s voice. But watching Rush in Rio convinced me that they were an amazing band, and I’ve been a fan of theirs ever since.
Plus, you can turn your video into a DVD using a service like CreateSpace, and give it away as a bonus, or even monetize it by selling it to your fans. The cost of putting together great video could be significant, so if you don’t have a budget, don’t try to implement this strategy just yet.
But when you’re ready to take things to the next level, make sure to capture professional footage from your next major recording session.
