Indie music at a glance

Brief background of indie music

Originally “indie” was short for “independent”. That meant any music published by a smaller label rather than one of the major publishers. Over time it came to refer to a style, or collection of styles, that were typical of the type of music put out by such small labels.

Why Indie Music Is More Important Today Than Ever.

Indie artists, or independent artists are basically musicians that have all the control to be creative in their music because they don’t have a contract with a record label. Sounds great, but these people did start their journey from the bottom! They never really know whether they have a promising future or not. Their independent music creates this creative, new side to music released nowadays. Because if all music released had to be with a record label, they’d all be slightly similar to one another.

Indie music has its uniqueness. However, music released through record label contracts has a much bigger chance of becoming a hit and reaching much more people than music made by independent musicians. There probably isn’t a comparison as to how things would go when indie music is released from when record labels releasing music because of how different they are.

It’s always important to make sure the unique ones out there have a platform for their creativity. Because without these independent artists, there wouldn’t be different music every once in a while that breaks the one dimensional ‘mainstream music’ that’s always trending.
