2020 has been a disappointment for most people and industries. There were very few positives to take from last year and cherish. But we can’t deny that the global lockdown has given nature and human beings a bit of a break. Nature came back to life in many ways and human beings stayed home and honed their skills. One of those silver linings amid the pandemic situation that kept us all going was music.
There have been a number of brilliant releases that have emerged from the Indian indie music scene. With more free time, musical artists hunkered down to write and record material from the comfort of their homes and collaborated with many musicians in the row. With some ease during lockdown, many have gone into the studio to record and collaborate with other musicians. And we, listeners, are entitled to a lot of earworms.
This year, too many of them are keeping that momentum going by writing more stellar music and with online streams, they’re generating a nice buzz across the country.
Very often there is a revolution in a country’s music scene. In India, things work a little differently. Bollywood mainly monopolizes the music scene of our country, and there is no denying it.
Famous singers and artists have bombarded the Indian music industry with the same kind of music everywhere. But is there absolutely no hope for new types of music and songs? Or don’t we make a lot of effort to look around and explore space? Well, to answer those questions and break the monotony of repetitive sounds, we bring to you – Traxeon, aka Rohan Shukla. Traxeon has proven to be an independent artist in the Indian music scene. And with a lot of other collaborations, the scene rises like mercury in the Indian music industry which looks rather promising. He is certainly one of the names of those budding artists from small town India who are giving birth to the boom of independent music in India immensely.
Traxeon’s recent single “Teri Kami” is her favorite creation to date. He came out with his voice to create this and feels so emotional for his song because it comes straight from his heart. Its beautiful audio track is available on all music streaming platforms by GrooveNexus Records.
Many of the challenges faced by talented independent artists do not stem from their work or their album release on various channels and in the music industry. Despite the fact that trends and markets have always changed often. So keeping pace with technology has revolutionized so many things over the last 10-20 years. Yet, there are musical artists who have been performing successfully and profitably for 30 to 40 years without wasting any time.
Independent artists who succeed in building a profitable and sustainable music career build their career, so that it is not affected by fickle outside influences.
