When is a Musician No Longer an Indie Musician?

To be an “indie musician” can mean a lot of different things to different people. It could mean playing a genre of music that doesn’t have a lot of mainstream appeal. To others, it can mean that the musician isn’t working with “the man” or music labels and corporations. Turns out, indie music actually has a definition, but even that doesn’t make much sense. Many sources agree that an indie musician is one who produces their own music without the help of big corporate labels. But then there are also indie labels that distribute music for lower costs than so-called big labels. How does an indie ..read more

America has had a deep history of punk rock since the 1970s. While that may not seem so long ago, the subculture it created expanded far outside of just music. Ideologies, fashion styles, visual arts, literature, dance, films, and more all wanted to be their own special kind of punk.

There are still people who wear their hair in spikes, make art about rebellion, and jam out to aggressive, loud, fast-paced music that can only be accurately labeled a ..read more
