I love love technology! I have to say that I have always been a tech geek. I have to say it probably started back when I was about 7. My dad brought home a quadraphonic stereo system with an Akai 1/4 inch reel to reel tape player. I was the only one he would let touch his gear. He showed me how to turn it on, and the proper way to thread the tape. There began my love of technology. From that Akai reel to reel, to a walkman, to am ipod... now ipad. I love how technology has the ability to empower us to go far beyond what we thought was possible.
As a vocalist, technology has opened up a world of possibilities. From being able to record my own music at home with my mac, or on the go with my ipad, to taking my own pictures and video with my phone and then uploading them to Youtube, Facebook as well as other social media sites. Technology if used properly gives artists the ability to express their creativity and share it with the world.
Now the newest thing that I have discovered is this new mobil app from Reverbnation. It gives fans unlimited access. Whether they're at home or on the road, your fans can listen to your music, see upcoming shows, check out photos, and view recent news. It's awesome and very easy to set up. In fact I am writing this blog post as the last step in the set up process. I can't wait to finish and try it out!
