March 2022 Newsletter
We have now reached March. We all hoped that 2022 would be a stronger, safer year for everyone around the globe however, it looks like for many, this isn’t and won’t be the case. There is nothing that Identity Music wants to say about the upcoming events in the industry. Right now, our thoughts are with supporting people worldwide. This newsletter will show you only updates from within Identity Music while our resources are going into those affected by this terrible conflict.
We are all saddened by the events in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people, as well as those who are affected by this conflict.
We are consulting with industry professionals and advisers regarding our Russian based music platforms e.g Yandex, UMA and SberZvuk.

HOW TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
With more and more artists entering the music scene we are seeing a huge variety of music and talent. How are you going to stand out in the crowd? How is your music going to be remembered? Here are just three ways in which you can stand out as an artist!
Yes, you are a musician and YOUR sound is the backbone of your career. However, striking and interesting visuals can be the defining factor in whether your track is listened to or remembered.
For example; a compelling and memorable music video will be burned into the viewer’s memory along with your music!
“You know that song right? The one with those guys dancing on treadmills, OK GO!”
Unique album artwork will also make you stand out while in a playlist. Taking the time and resources to get these RIGHT will lure new listeners right to you!
Having a varied portfolio of music will impress new listeners.
Having just one “sound” may make you seem like a one-trick pony. Showing variation and wide range of skills will impress the idea that you are a true lover of music and are open to trying new sounds! Applying these skills in thoughtful and specific ways is the key to making a portfolio shine.
This quality always makes new artists stand out! Clicking onto an artist’s channel and seeing a regular stream of new music is always going to make you feel drawn to them, as new music is always around the corner. Consistency doesn’t mean “every two weeks” instead it just means your audience will know when to expect a release, at your own pace. This quality should also transfer to your online presence with regular updates, behind the scenes, and real connections with your fans.
