In today's digital streaming age it's all but impossible for musicians to get their music heard.
40K tracks per day are added to Spotify alone!*
That's every single day!
1.2 MILLION TRACKS A MONTH!
In 2018 it was half that figure so it's just getting harder to get heard if you're a new musician.
Just having music on a streaming site isn't enough anymore, without active followers and being on playlists a band's music will just sit there and never be noticed so they need our support now more than ever.
So at Parallel Tribes we're offering a chance for bands and musicians to help themselves build that all elusive audience for their music. Our forum is somewhere you can chat about what has worked for you and more specifically what hasn't We are always actively promoting best practice in the promotion of new music but to be frank, best practice changes so often.
We like to think we're visionaries and perhaps some of the ideas we put forward seem a bit 'Out there!' but they're ideas and potential routes to new fans for your music.
FANS CAN HELP TOO
Streaming sites are run by automated algorithms, they look for tracks and artists that are gaining popularity and add them to automated playlists and radio for others to hear. The more playlists a track is added to the more it's played and the more it gets noticed.
Music fans can help new artists and bands directly by:
Listening to more new music on Spotify (Other streaming sites are available)
Adding the tracks they like to their own playlists
Following the new artists they've found
