Take part in the Farida RCM Big Survey of Unsigned Bands and Artists, and you could win a guitar!
Today, a statistic published by the Official Charts Company revealed that in 2012, more songs were streamed than singles have been bought in the last 60-years.
It could be stated that, this statistic makes an unfair comparison, and that perhaps, streaming is more akin to listening to a song on the radio. Nevertheless, in an era that has seen the majority of high street music shops vanish, whilst musicians struggle to turn their talents into a viable career, it’s a worrying statistic.
This tumultuous period of change has made it more difficult than ever for unsigned bands and artists. However, there is hope. Many organisations are adapting to the rapidly changing music industry.
One such organisation is Right Chord Music (RCM). This company provides a full suite of services for musicians in the present climate, from brand marketing, to production, distribution and management.
Currently, RCM, in association with Farida, is trying to get an accurate picture of industry from the perspective of unsigned artists and bands, via its ‘Big Survey’.
Take part, and you could be in with a chance of winning a Farida guitar, too…
Take the survey, submit a song, and you could win
According to the team at RCM, the whole purpose of the survey is to help them ‘…better understand the realities of being a musician in 2013’. Taking part is easy- simply head over to the survey page, here.
First complete the questions, and then you’ll be prompted to enter your name, email, and a SoundCloud link to one of your tracks. RCM will judge the submitted tracks, and the best will win a Farida guitar, and be showcased on their Facebook page, the RCM blog and the Lost On Radio podcast.
Taking a survey has never been so interesting… 😉
So, what are you waiting for? Take part here, and you could get a guitar and some free publicity for your efforts.
