Modern Music: The Marvel of the Craft
Concerning the post on authenticity in the art of contemporary music, I felt the urge to not only comment on the presented analysis that deals in particular with genuine artistic and personal charisma, no, as an admirer and attendant in the field of music I felt the urge to give insight on the corporate strings behind the craft: a voice about the music we love and buy, the music we hate, but the music we cannot live without.
The modern music world underwent a tremendous shift where being a great artist is not the overt demand A&Rs or giant executive producers expect when you sign your future and become part of the music business.
