Susan Bluechild, singer, songwriter, and recording artist from Ireland is using 21st century technology and the power of social media to set out her stall for the movers and shakers and smart decision makers in the music industry. In a business awash with talented performers, the clever young artist is using a new way to get the moguls to sit up and take note of her attributes. Susan has created a blogging website cheekily called AtlanticRecordsShouldSignMe.com where she addresses and comments on the vagaries of the music business.
A quick glance at her site underlines Ms Bluechild’s credentials to opine on such matters as she has been paddling her own canoe by writing and recording songs in order to establish herself as a viable prospect for any record company. Knowing the industry’s reticence to take a punt on a complete unknown, she decided to record her own album Non Stop to Venus and see how listeners responded. Happily, she was rewarded with very positive reactions from a wide range of people to a limited launch on her own record label.
At home in Ireland, Non Stop to Venus made album of the week on RTE and several other stations. Three singles, Rock Star, Sunrise, and Everybody Wants, taken from the album were playlisted on national, regional, and local radio. Sunrise reached No.1 in the Nielsen airplay charts and No.6 in the Nielsen international airplay charts. It was also single of the week in the Metro National newspaper, displacing Beyonce, Jay Z, The Killers, and a host of other heavyweight major label signings. An acoustic live performance was No.3 in the Youtube music video chart following a Videocast launch on Balcony TV, Rock Star was used on MTV's 'The Real World Hollywood', and in recent months BBC regional radio has begun to sit up and give the singles some airplay.
Such a strong reaction to a small release of her music would, you might have thought, have brought her to the attention of a big hitter in the industry, but it’s hard for a girl in Ireland to get heard above the clamour of all the other performers vying for their time. Among her well-wishers are P Diddy and Mungo Jerry who have written to say they like her sound, but these days you need to be not just creative in performing, but equally creative in getting your name in the public domain.
AtlanticRecordsShouldSignMe.com is an ingenious way of doing just that, and in the last few weeks the site has attracted a large and growing number of followers and fans for her music, while her blog has generated a surprising number of twitter comments from opinion shapers.
Canadian star Ron Sexsmith, former Prince manager Owen Husney, megastar producer and songwriter Nile Rodgers, and several high profile journalists and commentators have lauded her approach.
Here is an artist who has proven on a shoestring that there is a real audience for her talent, and with the resources and backing of an astute player in the currently beleaguered music industry she will make music, literally and metaphorically. This author for one would be really surprised if Susan Bluechild isn’t on the wish-list of more than just Atlantic Records before long.
