Music is changing - or is it?

As a musician, songwriter and co-founder of Gigable, I hear a lot of people saying there is no “good music these days.”

What really strikes me is that I think it’s the opposite!  There’s more great music being produced every day than any other time in history. It’s just that the traditional ways to discover are broken – or perhaps obsolete.

My wife asked me the other day, “who’s the next Rolling Stones?”
Well, when Brit-Pop-Blues-Rock comes back for a solid 10-20 years, there will be another Rolling Stones.

The bands from the 60s and 70s that made it big are a household brand, just like Coke. Two generations of music fans were spoon-fed very few options – and it stuck with them. 

There’s over 100 million songs that have been recorded. How will you pick the ones you listen to for the next 20-30 years?
