The Rise of Indie Artists Along Side Mainstream Artists

A large number of people are considering the benefits of looking at what Indie music professionals bring to the table. These are really interesting artists that have made it there mission to make music that is different from what the mainstream is doing. The good thing about these artists is that they now have access to a platform that allows them to create content that is easily accessible through the cloud network. It is going to be so much easier for people that want to change things up for their playlist to acquire some abstract artists.

 

Spotify is one of those streaming sites that plays a major part in the music that you hear from Indie artists. This is something that they had to do because it became such a big part of the industry as a whole. These indie artists are much more professional because they are getting their music out and doing the distribution themselves.

 

These artists are not waiting on the green light from any record executives anymore. To the contrary, these are artists that know what they want to do, and they know how they want to do it. They have more confidence, and they are able to make bigger profits because they have the opportunity to skip the major labels. This is exactly how Chance the Rapper gave himself a leg up in such a harsh music business.

 

While many rappers were in search of a contract Chance the Rapper made a decision to do something that most people may not have ever thought of. He made a ton of mix tapes and give his music away.

 

He would change the way that the world received Indie rap music. He would start a trend and become someone that was able to make himself a millionaire without ever being signed to a contract. This was rare, but now it appears that Indie music also entails things like mix tapes by rappers.

Chance the Rapper Brings American Sign Language interpreters on Tour

Chance the Rapper, a young Grammy award winning American rapper, singer, record producer, songwriter and subject of a hilarious Kit-kat commercial is well underway with his Be Encouraged tour. His tour began on April 24th in San Diego California and since April he has performed his show 34 times in 26 states and only has three more performances before his Spring Tour concludes. But instead of just finishing his tour using his perfected performance method, Chance the Rapper has decided to step up his performance game and make an exciting breakthrough in concert performance protocol.

American Sign Language Interpreters are used in numerous performance venues such as movie theaters, theatrical performances and sometimes even on the side of music festivals throughout the season. However, it is extremely uncommon to go to a concert and see an interpreter. But Chance the Rapper has never shied away from forging his own path and has a long history with philanthropy and community building, which led to an exciting development for hard-of-hearing Chance the Rapper fans. Chance has invited an Atlanta based organization called DEAFinitely Dope to join him on his Be Encouraged tour. Although there are only three performance dates left before the Be Encouraged tour takes a short hiatus, this announcement is nonetheless an exciting development for hard-of-hearing Chance the Rapper fans. There has not been word yet as to whether Chance will continue to partner with DEAFinitely Dope before he picks up again in October, but fans have so far gone crazy about this announcement! Hopefully other artists will follow in the same footsteps forged by Chance the Rapper and strive to make their own concerts equally as inclusive.
