A proven technique to get some exposure is the use of YouTube.  A growing amount of young people say that they discover most of their new music through that source nowadays as they scroll through music videos craving some aural and visual entertainment.  One way that has been successful for new artists is to post videos of themselves performing cover songs of popular tracks and use this to build a following of fans eager for their next song.  When these artists spring in an original song the built in fanbase is more than willing to give it a listen.

A great example is Sean O’Reilly.  The singer songwriter has posted videos of himself doing cover version of songs from everyone from Justin Timberlake to Dave Matthews to Lady Gaga.  His latest original is a very enjoyable song and an even more entertaining video.  Enjoy “Ready For You Now” below:
