New Artists ???

Postby pianoworldstage » Thu Oct 01, 2020 5:16 pm

Hi

There was a time when you could browse through CD Baby and listen to new solo piano artists and there albums, however since the discontinuation of the CD Baby store, I'm not sure where else to search?

Could anyone recommend other platform's where one can listen to new solo piano composers and their music?

If you go to bandcamp.com and enter solo piano into the search bar it lets you choose anything with that tag.
e.g. https://bandcamp.com/tag/solo-piano

Should give you a bit to work with?

And if you need any further recommendations more specific than Bandcamp, I've already bought a number of CDs by the following, who are all essentially pianists:

Max Richter: https://www.maxrichtermusic.com/

Nils Frahm: https://www.nilsfrahm.com/

Poppy Ackroyd: https://poppyackroyd.com/

Zinovia: https://www.kitchen-label.com/artists/z ... rvanitidi/

Thanks for your feedback.

I listen mainly to solo piano works, where would be the best place to hear new talent, any specific sites? Or just the links you've already provided?

I was struggling to find new artists the other day, but then I realised something that could be useful to you right now.

Your current favourite artists Soundcloud profile will show their likes. I've found tonnes of new, upcoming artists by browsing through what my favourite artists like.

Not sure if there are many pianists on Soundcloud, but is there an equivalent you could try?
