For those of you who don’t know it already. My friend David is taking part in the Toontrack songwriting competition. Now is the voting phase - the best 15 among 1000s of entries will be heard by the judges.
The fact that there are musicians in there who either already have a bigger fanbase or others who found a way to hack for votes -
(I’m not making this up, there are entries with more votes than views, which is impossible to achieve legally, because you can’t vote without viewing the entry)
- makes it incredibly hard for the rather unknown songwriters to get into the final round, and all their talent and hard work doesn’t help them anything.
The 15th place has almost 1000 votes by now. It’s a mere fight for the people’s support which has nothing to do with music anymore. And it means getting on people’s nerves and asking for help, some of you might call it even spamming, but there’s simply no chance without doing that.
And seriously now, is it so much to ask for? 2 clicks, voluntary clicks….
I’m aware that most of my followers won’t even read this entry, but anyway. For those of you who don’t mind to share some minutes of their time:
Please listen, and if you like what you hear please vote for this entry. For the sake of fairness I also suggest taking a look at other lower rated entries, if you like to. It’s also possible to vote once every 24 hours for one entry, but I guess that’s a little too much to ask for… ;-)
