Were you there?

Last night indie music fans were glued to Impeccable Radio to listen to the Golden Kayak Award Show.  It went without a hitch and was ably presented by Scott and Zeeza while everyone waited to congratulate the winners on the Pipeline ‘Party Thread’

You can relive the occasion here  The artists will be receiving their awards in the next few days.  Management and admin worked so hard to organize, run and present the show and I think all the members who took part, voted and attended,  enjoyed themselves.

So start writing your original songs now…. every song uploaded will be eligible for nomination in the 2016 competition at IMP  later this year.  We are THE friendly music meeting place and listening post for indie music people.

Summer inspiration to Winter desolation

It’s rather quiet on the site forum (The Pipeline) at the moment, probably a combination of Weekend and Summer in most Countries – but it is noticeable that more new music comes from artists and bands in the Southern hemisphere at this time of the year – Australia is buzzing.  The Summertime is a great inspiration for songs however, happy songs about warmth and freedom, love and fun. These moments must be remembered in the colder months as we look back and wish the Summer was still here.  Maybe writing about Summer is an antidote to hard times while music written in winter reflects a different side of us..  Winter songs tend to be slower and deeper, colder and more emotionally challenging – while Summer songs tend to be upbeat, easy listening and sing-a-long in nature.

Then we have the in-between seasons of Spring and Autumn both very inspirational, one new, fresh and hopeful, the other glorious, rich, colorful and mature.the mojo

Where do listeners hang out?

The site is buzzing with new bands, especially since we lifted the song number restrictions.  We’re getting quality artists, popular bands and amazing music every day…..  but who is going to listen?   So many people I talk to say they love original new music or they want to support independent and struggling musicians but then they go to Spotify, Amazon and the like with a large % listening to the old classic bands…. No need folks, some of our artists are just as good and much more accessible.

Maybe the listeners hang out at Soundcloud or Bandcamp, fair enough, they have plenty of good original stuff…. but they don’t have a social arena, it’s not easy to talk to the artists or share with other listeners.

Good artists deserve good listeners SO BE ONE
