The Philadelphia music scene has featured some of the most iconic artist in the world. Most famously, rappers such as Cassidy, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, Will Smith and PNB Rock have come from the City of Brotherly Love. Singers such as Jill Scott, Pattie LaBelle and many more has made Philadelphia a music city.
Why Does it Need More Coverage
Every year there are more artists coming out of Philadelphia, which is one of the main reasons why this topic needs more coverage. Up-and-coming artist like Chynna, Grande Marshall, Miles Chancellor and Tierra Whack are artist who have a lot of talent, but go unnoticed because the lack of coverage on the Philadelphia music scene.
We’re the right people to cover this because….
Gail and I are the right people to cover this topic because we are two people who love music. Gail currently works for a music magazine and I love to create my own music. It’s a passion that we both share and finding new artist and new music is always interesting.
Three interesting ideas we hope to explore
Three interesting ideas that we hope to explore are Global Villages jam sessions, house music scenes and music therapy. The Global Village jam sessions are very laid back experiences where local artist come together play. House music scenes are very diverse shows. There are many different types of music that are played at these shows and we want to explore the artist that only survive based on their Soundcloud accounts. Also we want to investigate how music therapy helps people in their every day lives. For example, a form of musical therapy could include a pregnant woman who puts headphones on her stomach and plays it for the baby.
