Help!!! Sounds like what artists?
on: August 12, 2016, 21:16:02
« Last Edit: August 12, 2016, 22:38:28 by Jambrains »
I'm uploading one of my songs to feature.fm and suddenly I'm asked to name at least 3 artists that sound like my song.
The idea is that if a person likes those artists they will probably like my song as well since it is in the same genre/style whatever.

Problem is, I don't listen much to music these days and definitely not in the acoustic folk/singer-songwriter genre.
So guys, help me out, what artist comes to mind when you hear this song?

I @Jambrains  - Maybe Lady Antebellum  - The Band Perry - Sixpence None The Richer - all Alt-Country bands, although with women fronting and doing the singing.


There is always a comparison, I think it's a marketing thing, the better you can describe what you are - instead of the standard line "I don't sound like anybody else" - which I've read turns the powers that be off.

Hey @Jambrains , just listened to a lot of acoustic guitar songs, and this seems to be a very difficult question.. Closest matches (after 30 mins of searching) for me were:
Mr Big - I'm the one who wants to be with you
Eagles - Tequila sunrise
Green Day - She (Acoustic version)

But I'll give it some extra thoughts.. Or did you already submit?

Thanks a mill @MartiMedia !
However, I think they are looking for similarities with artists rather than particular songs i.e. even though She would be similar to my song She it is not a typical Green Day song and thus would not be suitable to play adjacent to Basket Case or American Idiot.

Hey my friend yw, ok mmm that's difficult... When thinking about artists in this genre also 'Bother' from 'Stone Sour' popped up, but again that's an exeption, their songs are heavy normally.
I give up man, maybe google 'songs like..' and see what the search engine gives you?
Or try to define your style and search using tags on spotify/soundcloud? (If that's possible)..

Lol, I got fed up with it and just found some singer/songwriter playlist on Spotify. Checked out a few and if they were male and had an acoustic on the track I put that name on the list :-)

This is the first song I've heard of yours I think, and it's great!  ::headphone::

I got a Tom Petty vibe from the song and from your voice a little, although I think yours is deeper.

I would even say, but this is more of a stretch, Cat Stevens.
