5 Great Ways to Discover New Indie Artists and Bands Online

The Internet is one of the most perfect arenas to discover new music, especially new independent music – mainly because there are so many venues. The key, though, to discovering new indie artists is to discover all the venues first. The world wide web is a liberating platform for independent artists, because they can flex their talents – even without the backing of a big record label. In the old days, it took record label capital to put bands on the road and to put records on the shelves, but these days, it can all be done online – for a fraction of the cost. Here are five great ways to discover new indie artists and bands online.

  1. Indie music blogs. There is a plethora of indie music blogs online and if you find one blog, there is a good chance that you will find others. One of the best ways to find an indie music blog that you like is to do some searching. You can perhaps start with an artist you already know and like. Simply search that artist online and with a little digging, you will find exactly what you are looking for.
  2. Bandcamp. This is another great way to discover new independent artists, because not only can you listen to their music, but you can also purchase records and other merchandise. Bandcamp allows artists to set up a profile page, which features music, photos, albums and new album release dates. It also has a link to the musician’s or band’s social media pages, so that you can follow them for upcoming news, tour dates and much more.
  3. Tweewoo. If you are looking for one of the web’s best music discovery tools, Tweewoo has it all – you can download music, stream new albums, keep up to date with bands you like and you can even watch live concerts. In the old days, it was hard for indie bands to build a following, because they didn’t have the money to travel and play live shows, but with Tweewoo, bands can reach out to music lovers all over the world. For bands and music lovers, this is an invaluable tool.
  4. Spotify. If you are looking for a more customized experience, this application is a great way to find new artists, because once you find a band or musician you like, Spotify will give you recommendations on other artists. Not only that, but you can share the music that you’ve listened to with your friends, so that you can share your discoveries. And, of course, you’ll probably discover a few artists through your friends as well.
  5. YouTube. This video uploading and sharing tool has been fundamental in breaking new artists. So, if you are looking for incredible new indie artists, simply browse YouTube and you’ll be able to watch countless videos from artists across the world. In the end, the age of the music video being on television is over – most of the newest music videos are released on YouTube first, so it’s a great way to be a part of a new artist’s big break.
