The best thing about songwriters is Indie music does not only resemble music that is created without record label contracts, they resemble a much deeper message of creativity. Indie music has the ability to break away from any rules put for famous artists because they have the space to be as creative as they want. Indie music is about doing it yourself and ignoring the norms of society. It has given musicians their self identity, confidence and voice.
There has never been a better time to be an indie artist.
