Include songs… The calling card of the indie performer (Our example: Only Girl Rihanna) It’s an ever changing landscape for any independent musician or label (or for the majors as an example) Cover songs have become crucial in the marketing plan of any savvy indie musician and here’s why… It was a few months ago we first heard of the band Pomplamoose doing their version in the Lady Gaga song telephone.
They had a massive ‘hit’ (or a great deal of ‘hits’… 7 million plus in fact) about youtube. While in one way they are flying the flag for any indie route Black Ryan Tannehill Jersey , in another way what they are doing is obviously piggybacking on the millions of pounds that the key labels are spending creating the global demand for your song. (And quite right too!)
In any case, it must be part of the indie musician’s artillery thus to their promotional plans online. The issue for musicians is this… Finding a currently popular song that is being currently searched for and tweeted is significant, but it also has to be something that works like a calling card for the band. When you first encounter a group or act, it does help to hear a song you are already familiar with to hook you in Black Cameron Wake Jersey , but it has to be executed well. If it’s just bad acoustic karaoke then the band might in addition save the energy.
It needs to be creative, unique and most importantly a showcase from the bands ‘sound’ whatever that might end up being. Pomplamoose, did this really well with the Lady Gaga Telephone cover, and I have seen other bands do this really well too. Our first bash at it was Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl Inside World’. We took the Rihanna song via high energy R&B dance track to a chilled out Black Reshad Jones Jersey , soulful singer songwriter arrangement.
We have also tried out alternative cover versions too including Bruno mars “Grenade’ and Kings of Leon “Radioactive” you can check them all here. For me the Only girl (Rihanna) is the best example as that is the arrangement that we could alter essentially the most and showcase our own sound.

It can be almost as much of a creative challenge to reinterpret someone else’s song (and to do it well) as its to write your own material via scratch. It requires imagination and creativity to hear the way to make a song your own which is the challenge. Of course the real crunch comes once if you do follow up with your individual material that you not only continue to keep interest but at that point really make a true fan out of a casual listener because of the quality of the original material.
