Artist blogs to check...

The Internet, for all its bad points when it comes to downloading music, has allowed the relationship between artist and fan to get ever so close. Now just putting an album out and touring aren't enough. If people can't find you on Myspace, you're missing out on a potential new fan base. Getting to hear an artist's music months before it hits radio is great for the artist to receive feedback and it means many more new talents can be discovered. One of my favourite aspects though, of this closer bond between an artist and fan, is blogging. Before it was only critics who blogged, but now your favourite artist is filling you in on everything from making their album to touring and eating in restaurants to hitch hiking across America. These are some worthy of your browsing time.
