The age of the Internet artist is upon us. Thousands of artists work their day job, busting their proverbial butts to make a living. Every free moment, their mind wanders to a dream world where their music and their message are heard by millions. They grab their guitar nightly to release themselves from the pressure of daily life and pour their souls into their music. The result is pure and is what music is all about.
Once upon a time, the music we heard and listened to was controlled. Record and media companies led us down the path that was most profitable to them. They told us what artists to listen to, what artists were good and what to buy. Those days are over.
Today, the internet allows these artists to showcase their talents without restrictions. Their message can be and is heard by millions every day. The landscape is changing and the artists that recognize the new age of music will be the Rolling Stones, U2, and Green Days of the future.
One such artist is The C Elliot Project. C grew up in Montana and achieved great success in college at UNLV by finishing his law degree. In the end, he did not follow the legal career path. "The law really interested me at one point in my life but currently is not ‘the big thing’ for me," he says.
Searching for his path in life, he has achieved excellent success in the health care industry. Working for the same company for over 10 years, he has found a rewarding and successful career.
A source of therapy, C enjoys creating music and songwriting. He has released a 3 track EP called Trifecta. The lead song “Chasing the Wind” is an internet hit leading many of the underground indie sites in plays and downloads. He is the Clear Channel Top 5 New Artist and reached #2 in downloads on MP3.com. He was also nominated for Best Male Vocal by the Los Angeles Music awards.
