I moved to Michigan, United States and started my career as a freelance musician. After witnessing the drastic changes in the music industry brought by Artifical Intelligence, I dreamt of making something big out of myself. I have seen YouTube and Spotify taking over concerts and street shows. This change is at the same time progressive yet heartbreaking. Personally, I feel that apps like Spotify, SoundCloud, iHeart Radio, etc not only lets you stream and enjoy a plethora of choices but also provide a fresh platform for new artists. This particular blog is my third attempt to portray different aspects of music in the present day scenario.
