Long ago, music used to be created for the sake of expressing creativity through beautiful sounds and it was mostly discovered through word of mouth. Then along came major record labels that would turn some bands popular while other bands with the same talent remained unknown. It could be argued that major record labels have made it somewhat harder for indie bands to catch a break if the band doesn’t create music that lives up to major record label standards, therefore making it hard for some bands to gain recognition, but with the internet it is now possible to market your own indie band.
With the internet, it is possible for any budding musician to get their sound heard by a large audience of music lovers. Many indie bands have opted to market their music through their own websites or through the use of social media like Facebook and My Space, and they are finding these ways work for getting their music recognized. If you would like to get your music heard by numerous potential fans, all it takes is a little computer savvy to market your own unique blend of indie rock music. By using the internet to market your indie music, it is a guarantee that you will not lose your artistic integrity through the rules often brought on by major record labels and before you know it, your indie band will have millions of fans.
