The Changing Singer-Songwriter Playlist & Player


img_1586 We used to be able to put music in boxes. We’d classify them as certain genres so we could associate artists with other artists. We based these genre categories on sound, style, and theme. However, the genres are bleeding into each other more and more as artists are being influenced by such vibrant and different music pieces.

The singer-songwriter isn’t the same anymore. I’m hearing more and more of this in new music and I think it’s spreading. And I believe we need this for a few reasons. We need to see how boxes are restricting, even if they can be helpful.

This week’s radio show is all about how the boxes no longer fit like they used to. It’s also a showcasing of some awesome new music you need to add to your record collection. And it’s worth noting that 3 of the artists are past guests of The DIY Artist Route Podcast, archived here. Dive in and explore the space!
