Starting a local band can seem like a daunting task. How do you get venues to book you when you are still “unknown”? How do you grow your fanbases to other countries? How do you get those fans to keep buying your music?youbloom has the answer: youbloom is helping to uncover the many hidden talents around the world that are often overshadowed by the relatively few mainstream artists/bands who dominate the music industry. Independent artists have partnered with other bands on their own, but youbloomConnect opens the doors to many other opportunities that may have been outside a band’s immediate connections in their hometown.youbloom is also helping keep fans connected with the artists they love because fans have the opportunity to request artists to come to their city or perform virtually. These direct connections are the bedrock of youbloom and they keep fans interested as bands/artists continue to create new music. Artists love to know they have dedicated fans and fans love the direct connection with their favorite artists!Even if a band/artist only has a small group of fans, the dedication of those fans to their music is what can help ground them and create a concrete platform to branch off of. Similarly, creating a few great connections with other artists will form a strong web with connections from around the world, coast to coast. Visit our Artist Matching page to discover new artists from across the globe to start building those new connections!You can also check out our facebook page and join the Emerging Music Connection Hub group to talk with other artists currently working with youbloomConnect.
