How digital music may be hurting artists

David Priest, a versatile music artist, spoke to NetOrbis about his nearly 35 years of musical journey. David is an unsigned artist (not affiliated to any record company) but has created and performed music for three generations across the US and UK
Jan. 30, 2013 - PRLog -- David Priest started performing at the age of 19 and has not looked back ever since. In his interview with NetOrbis, he provides an insight into his musical career that took him from his hometown of Bedfordshire, UK to Oklahoma, US and now back to Bedfordshire. From a vocalist to a musician to a movie producer, David has done it all. David has released eight singles so far and is releasing his ninth single on February 19, 2013.  His interview is a delightful read for any musician or for that matter, anyone passionate about his career.

David highlights how the music industry has changed over the last 35 years or so. He mentions that the trend of digital music downloads is putting more pressure on artists to take on world tours to make a living. He also blames manufactured bands for hurting many other original artists.

David advises upcoming artists to stay original. Even if they are doing a cover version, they need to make the song their own. They need to do something with the song so that it feels like the song belongs to them.

David’s own musical style has been influenced by David Bowie, Robyn Hitchcock, Andy Partridge, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and more recently Steven Page and Ed Robertson. Currently, he enjoys Californian alternative rock scene and some of the Canadian music. Though David’s music reflects current music style but his lyrics have remained consistent and reflect his own self.

David is currently working on a movie project called “O”.  As per him, it is an experimental art project, an emotionally rich film, which will be shot around Bedfordshire, UK. It is loosely based on his perception of one year (“1966”) in the life of Edie Sedgwick, an American actress, socialite, fashion model, and heiress.
