Indie music continues to make waves in the global music industry. It might not be as decorated as mainstream music, but it has inspired a lot of successful commercial artists. 2020 is a year to go down in indie music history.
We have listed two particular events that caused a massive shake-up both positively and negatively to indie music. Here they are.
Billie Eilish’s Massive Win During the 2020 Grammy
Music icon Billie Eilish is a newcomer in the music industry, and she already has 5 Grammy awards under her resume. In the most recent Grammy Awards, Eilish won most of the major awards including Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Now here is how we connect the line with indie music. Eilish’s music is highly considered as pop music, but it is also indie music. Thousands of aspiring indie musicians across the globe were inspired by Eilish’s massive accomplishments at the age of 18.
She’s not even old enough to drink yet. Eilish’s music is now a beacon of light for so many indie artists and musicians out there.
Eilish is now considered one of the biggest Indie pop singers and songwriters to go down in history. No one saw it coming.
Covid-19 Pushed Indie Musicians to Release New Music
It has been determined that Indie artists are already releasing new music at a faster rate back in February this year. However, more and more are coming because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In music streaming applications, people are making playlists of nothing but Indie music hits.
That has encouraged more indie artists and bands to release new music. Some are experienced and some are novices. We have seen a lot of new releases by artists and bands we’ve never even heard of before.
Some people stuck at home are also getting motivated to make music of their own. They of course mostly start with indie and acoustic. Nevertheless, it has truly been a challenging and amazing couple of months with the pandemic still rampant in many nations.
People are finding solace in music, especially to the music they can connect with.
