Making a Scene The #1 Resource for the Indie Artist and the Fans that Love them
Interview with a Pro - Melissa Clarke - Americana Highways
Interview with a Pro - Melissa Clarke - Americana Highways
Let’s face it 2020 is a wash for the gig economy and this is not good news for the Indie artist or their fans. Many musicians have taken to online live streaming shows to stay connected to their fans and hopefully generate some income to help as they try to negotiate this new reality.

One of the problems with all of these Live Streaming shows is they are fragmented all over social media and are presented on so many different platforms, Facebook live, Instagram Live, Stageit, etc. This presents an new problem for the fans and the artist as there is no sense of consistency and nor is there a central location where a fan can go and find a variety of artists performing, much like a venue and being able to view a schedule of shows to know when their favorite artist is presenting that show.

Review Kemper Amplifier Profiler
Review Kemper Amplifier Profiler
Making a Scene Presents a Review of the Kemper Profiling Amp!

When you have owned a recording studio for as long as I have you tend to collect amplifiers as part of the tools of the trade. I have amassed a collection of "Tone Monsters" that run from a 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb and a 68 Super Reverb to Ampegs, Marshalls, Crates, and even a Pignose Amps Cross mix! Guitar players are always looking for that magic tone for their recordings and a good studio has a collection that helps them find the sound they are searching for.

That may be all changing with the Kemper Profiler you can have Thousands of vintage amps at your fingertips that not only have their tone but also responds like you are plugged into them!

Check out our review of this unique Recording and LIVE guitar/Bass Tone monster!

LIVE MUSIC SURVEY!
We have a new reality in the music industry today. The new music consumer no longer looks at music as a commodity to purchase, but more as something they have unlimited access to. This has affected the whole industry but nowhere is it more evident then with the Independent Artist! During the 90’s the independent artist had the opportunity to take over the distribution of their music and have all the revenue come directly to them. CD Sales were still brisk, download sales were starting and was a windfall revenue stream for the indie artist. Today those streams are drying up and now the Indie Artist must depend on touring and performing live as their main income stream.
