More people are capable of playing, recording and mixing music than ever before. Though they usually know jack shit about anything other than playing their instrument and so the presentatin is shoddy. "Bedroom artists" also have to stretch themselves a lot more than artists with label support, so it usually results in less quality overall.

I personally don't have much interest in checking out artists that have don't play their work in public.

Like me, for instance.

I'll listen to anybody.

My friend's older brother was in a band who played local bars, but they wrote and recorded great original songs.

Depends on the music and the information given. I do like tracking the progress of "unheard" bands/artists if they are good.

No, if it's good music, it's good music. I don't care if some "huge band" made it, or if some band I've never heard of made it. Frankly, recently, most of the bands I've started listening to come from bandcamp. (The "Free on Bandcamp" thread is awesome.)

Some of my favourite music comes from amateur artists I've chanced upon at the pub.

You've gotta start somewhere. Unless you're jbeebz or 1D or TSwiftz, who are essentially just models,crafted by corporations and thrust into the limelight at the apex of the industry right from their inception, you have to start at the bottom.

Just because he started out on Youtube doesn't mean what Butt Rayge said isn't true. They take these people and just craft them to make the most money humanely possible.

While searching for videos of a different singer, Scooter Braun, a former marketing executive of So So Def, clicked on one of Bieber's 2007 videos by accident. Impressed, Braun tracked down the theater Bieber was performing in, located Bieber's school, and finally contacted Mallette, who was reluctant because of Braun's Jewish religion; she remembered praying, "God, I gave him to you. You could send me a Christian man, a Christian label!... you donít want this Jewish kid to be Justinís man, do you?"


uh, wow.

Justin Bieber did not start at the bottom. A 12 year old getting picked up my a major record label while he's still living with his parents is not an emotional tale of an underdog struggling for success.
