Jennifer Cameron – Tell Me
Tell us how you develop your sound and style to make it different from other musicians.
The music I write comes from deep within my heart and soul. That is why my music is unique.
Tell us your opinion on the way new artists are coming up and the frequent release of songs.
Good on them! Hopefully, if they have talent then the talent will shine through. Money can buy lots of things, but it can’t make one a talented musician/singer/songwriter. The artist’s talent will speak for itself and eventually shine through if it is real.
Tell us your experience as a musician.
I’m not famous. And I don’t want to be. I would love my music to speak for itself and hopefully reach out to people and make them feel something, depending on what they are going through. I would like to touch people on a deeper level with my music.
Tell us your opinion on streaming and digital download of songs.
I think it’s brilliant! It allows indie musicians (like me) to be heard on a bigger platform. The possibilities are endless. As an artist, I do not currently have the capacity to tour, etc., but this platform enables my music to be heard around the world; and I am grateful for that.
Tell us your goals and plans.
To be known as a musical artist who has conviction.
For my music to be heard around the world and to touch listeners around the world.
To develop a strong catalog of original music; (and to be remembered for my music).
To make a full-length album (hopefully one day – but no one buys full-length albums anymore, do they?).
To hopefully get some reimbursement at some point for my musical endeavors (but that is not my motivation – I just want to get my tracks out there).
Tell us five current artists that are your favorite.
I like unique artists who write their own music and/or lyrics; who have conviction, who don’t try to be what others expect them to be (no flashy sideshow) and who are proud of the music they make that will stand the test of time!
Tell us your best song up to date.
My best song to date is Tell Me.
Followed closely by “Livin’ Without You.”
Tell us your dream and hope for the future.
To become an established singer/songwriter/instrumentalist. And for my music to be known and appreciated on a global level.
Tell us what has changed in the music industry.
Increased opportunities such as what you are doing to allow indie artists to be heard on a broader scale and to discover untapped talent. What you are doing to get music heard is brilliant!
Tell us your opinion on television/radio stations playing the same songs from established artists and giving little chances to independent artists.
It sucks! Some of the best songs ever written have not yet been heard!
Tell us the challenges independent artists are facing and how to tackle them.
Lack of money to finance producers/publishers etc.; who have excellent contacts. It seems to be about who you know and that’s not fair because there is a real untapped talent just waiting for an opportunity. The way to tackle it is by doing exactly what you are doing and you are awesome! Giving artists who have talent an opportunity and platform on which they can be heard!
Tell us your opinion on using social media to promote music online.
Yes! It is basically all I have got in terms of advertising and promoting my music.
Tell us about your music career.
It is not a career. It is about the love of music. And I reckon I have some pretty darn good songs!
Tell us what still motivates you to go on with your music career.
I write music that (hopefully) makes people feel! It certainly makes me feel like writing it. I write from the heart. And I want to touch people’s souls!
Tell us about you as a person.
I am a laid-back, honest Aussie girl.
