Your Questions About How To Discover New Artists

John asks…

How can I play my favorite artist on LAUNCHCAST radio ?

I have signed up for the service. I cannot seem to get Shakira’s songs to play (I have made her my top artist, etc.) – only rarely do they play.

Is there a way for me to get Launchcast to play more of her songs? Right not it only plays her songs one in a thousand times (or less).

Launchcast is specifically designed NOT to be a “music on demand” service, and by that they mean the ability to have it play just what you want it to play. Launchcast has “variety” rules built into it to prevent any one artist from playing “too often”. Generally, about the best you can do is to hear just a couple of songs per day by any given artist, and often not even that many as you have discovered.

The reason they designed Launchcast this way has to do with royalty payments to the record companies. The royalties are a lot lower for a radio-like service versus a music-on-demand service.

Yahoo had a music-on-demand service that WOULD let you play whatever you want. It was called Yahoo Music Unlimited, but they recently sold it to Rhapsody.

Your best shot at hearing the most Shakira is to go to her main artist page at music.yahoo.com and play the “fan” radio station set up for her. It should play music “similar” to Shakira, based on the ratings of people who like Shakira.

Who needs a gifted illustrator and artist to work for free?

I will scan work digitally and send anywhere around the world for a childrens book etc…. lots of possibilities. I am a junior in Art School and my parents are professional artists as well.

Sounds like a good offer. I dont need you. But i have some good advice you may find useful. Try sharing your work with other people in your community, share with as wide of an audience as possible and get a good opinion on your work. Join a local art show they are often free and will help showcase your talents. Who knows, you may even be discovered.

Mandy asks…

What is the music genre where it sounds like a tribe in the jungle has discovered how to make techno?

Sometimes the public access radio station will play some really interesting strange music…it sounds very tribal, very foreign, but it’s layered with techno beats and is very digital.

Do you know of any artists like this that would be good to check out?

New Niche Finder answers:

Drum & bass jungle? Maybe?

What artist do you like thats not something you would normally listen to?

I wouldn’t have discovered Nigerian afro-rock and jazz if it wasn’t for my sister.

Kid cudi and eminem.
I don’t listen to ANY music like that, besides theirs.

Carol asks…

How would you feel if you were dating a pick up artist?

How would you feel if you discovered that the guy you were dating used principles of attraction (Venusian Arts) that he read in a book and practiced on many women to pick you up?

Vik is a hipocrite….Girls use all sorts of fake things ie hair, makeup, pushup bras and so on to attract the opposite sex. These are tools we can use to bring things into our favor. Just like they do!
