The Monsters Turned Out to Be Just Trees

The Monsters Turned Out to Be Just Trees

When you realized you've thrown young Taylor Swift over...for today's Taylor Swift.

I’ve got fond memories of sitting on the bus heading to marching band competitions in the seat behind the emergency exit while I ate LaffyTaffy. My friend and I would share headphones and listen to music, everything from Kesha’s “Take it Off” to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” But the best of all the music was none other than Taylor Swift.

Belting out T-Swift music was—and still is—the perfect way to pass time. Back then I thought that “Haunted,” “Back to December” and “Picture to Burn” were personally written for me. For most of the songs, I even had people that I pretended that I was singing them to. I’m sure every other girl and T-Swift fan did the same thing.

Prior to "Red" and "1989," I didn’t have any of her albums—only a random collection of songs I’d accumulated. I put those songs on a CD and jammed out to them in my car or on road trips. But those two albums replaced all of those songs and eventually found their way at very back of car’s CD case.

The other day I pulled it out. Immediately “Back to December” came on and memories came flooding back. Memories of high school and what that song once meant to me, but now I just wasn’t into it. So the next song, “Better than Revenge,” came on and I was like, OK, this is cool. Eventually kept going on and I reached my favorite, “Haunted.”

But the blasé feeling came back.

Don’t get me wrong, T-Swift is like royalty to me—I listen to her music religiously because she’s one of five singers/bands that I tend to rotate between. What I realized is, though, is that I’ve matured.

Nowadays, “Shake it Off” or “Wonderland” comes on and I’m immediately into it. I like to write and one of my most inspirational songs is always “All Too Well.”

I’ve somehow found this place where Taylor Swift’s older music seems young and I can’t relate to it (as much, because it’s still T-Swift and all her music is fantastic). The thing is, she’s matured, too, and it just so happened to have occurred along a similar timeline as me—even if when she was singing about being 22 I wasn’t even out of high school yet.

I think that back then Taylor was only represented by her music. But now, Taylor represents Taylor. Her music is just something that comes out of that. She’s her own being and she has so much more to offer than I think people realize: empowerment, confidence, positivity, humbleness. Her music has come to reflect all of that because she’s been writing songs that are more powerful and filled with more depth.

When I realized that, I took out that CD, put in "Red" and started jamming, even with the well-known head banging from the Grammys a few years ago, to “All Too Well.” I got into it, loved it, and realized that I’ve grown.

Not just because I’m not on a bus living off of LaffyTaffy and trying to use my telepathic powers to put music into others’ heads so they know my feelings toward them, but because I realized I’ve gotten over that phase.

Then again, maybe I haven’t.

Top 5 Tips for getting your music discovered online

A musician’s guide to SEO
1370
views

  1. Pick a unique band name

Usually, I’d say the name of a band doesn’t matter; but, in the cyber world, this can make all the difference. Picking a name that is easy to rank for on Google is essential for new fans to be able to find you! Ranking for keyword searches on google is very easy when the keyword or long tail keyword (combination of words) isn’t something many people search for. Let’s take the band “Real Estate” for example. This band has over 1 million monthly listeners, and over 40 thousand Instagram followers. With a quick google search of their name they rank…nowhere on the first 5 pages. Now let’s look at my high school band “Olympic Formal” (this isn’t me trying to plug my music I swear). With just over 50 followers on SoundCloud, and less than 700 followers on Instagram, all our sites pop up at the top of the first page. You think anyone is searching for “Olympic Formal” and not looking for us? PICK A GOOD BAND NAME! 

2. Stop using hashtag music 

When people are searching for new music, a lot of times it happens on Instagram or twitter, but #music has over 180 million posts. You are not going to rank for that hashtag. I promise. Instagram’s new algorithm discourages people from using a ton of hashtags, and doing so can lead to you even being “shadow banded”. So pick 5 or 6 relevant hashtags that are more niche than the umbrella terms people usually use. It’s a lot easier to rank for something like #bostonhiphop than #hiphop. 

3. Make a WordPress

Many people think Blogs are a thing of the past…and they’re kind of right. The likelihood of getting people to engage with a website that’s not a major social media platform isn’t nearly as high as it was in the early 2000’s. However, using a site like WordPress allows you to repost all your pictures and videos from Instagram and Facebook and add “alt text”. Alt Text is the description that is behind the photo that no one sees. Having the name of your band or other keywords in the alt text of your WordPress allows you to show up for searches on google images. 

4. Links are key

Google uses things called “Spiders” to search every page on anything that is relevant to your search. One of the things that these siders look for is internal links to relevant content. So if you want your Bandcamp page at the top of a Google search, be sure to post links to all your social media pages and websites, as well as have other sites (personal accounts/blogs and professional blogs) link your sites within their posts.

5. Content is king

The days of just putting out music are over! Musicians have to realize they are not in the music business, but also the entertainment business! The single best way to get your music discovered is by having something that lots of people engage with. It’s a hell of a lot easier to have 1000 people watch 1 minute Instagram video of a jam session than it is to get 1000 Spotify streams. It’s all about that content baby!
