So, I decided to visit reverbnation.com to see who was in the top 10 in the area that I live in. Mainly, to see what genre’s showed up. I live outside the Austin, TX area and I assumed that a good chunk of the top 10 would be Country.
While there are a couple of country acts on there, I was surprised to see that there was a nice mix of genres.
By The Numbers
Country – 2 (Granger Smith & Earl Dibbles Jr – One is the others alter ego, pretty fun)
Pop – 1 (Ginger Leigh)
Rock – 2 (One-Eyed Doll & Ulrich Ellison and Tribe)
Experimental – 1 (Michael Garfield)
Jazz -1 (Judith Miller Band)
Americana – 1 (The Lunar Rollers)
R&B/Soul – 1 (Lauren Silva)
Hip Hop – 1 (Sane Texas Legend)
Actually, I was quite surprised to see the mix. Too many times you will see one genre dominate another in a region. As I mentioned, I thought I would see a lot of country.
Now, some of these artists are not my personal taste for music, however, I will give them all props for being in the top 10. They are obviously doing something right and have a fan base to help get them there.
Check them out, and check to see who are the top 10 in your city. You may discover a new Indie Artist you love!
