Here it is at long last the secret to finding new songs…….wait for it…..LISTEN TO NEW MUSIC!
You probably started singing because you like to listen to other people sing. So to find new material you just continue to do what you love – listen to music. The resources today are incredible! In my day of pounding the pavement there was no youtube or spotify. If I wanted to seek out new musicals I hadn’t heard before I had to go to the library to hear them. Nowadays you can browse youtube or spotify by composer or find your favorite singer and see what they have recorded. And don’t be afraid to listen to shows that you have never heard of. Even “flop” shows can have terrific scores. One of my favorite things to do while doing the dishes is to put spotify on radio with a show I already know and let the radio feature come up with new songs for me. Then if I like one, I add it to a playlist to research later.
It’s a rainy Sunday here in Vermont, a perfect day to listen to new show tunes.
