Lee Aaron feels an artist can release an album these days and people forget about it two days later
Canadian female rocker Lee Aaron was recently interviewed by Sakis Nikas for Greece’s Rock Pages. Lee Aaron was promoting her upcoming new album Radio On!, which will be available via Metalville Records on July 23, 2021.
The singer was asked whether she thinks that she would achieve the same level of commercial success if she started her career now to which she replied:
“That’s really hard to say because with the digital age and the social media, I think it’s even harder to make noise and get noticed. There’s such saturation…there are so many artists. On one hand, it’s easier for a female artist to pick up the guitar and play hard rock music and on the other hand it’s harder for fans to distinguish an artist. In the 80s, there was a huge marketing plan from the recording company. The labels invested on an artist and people knew us and bought our records. Nowadays, you release an album and everybody seems to have forgotten all about it after two days or something.”
When Nikas pointed out that this is a sad state, Lee Aaron added: “It is. But my plan is to carry on releasing good albums. I believe that good music will reach anyone who still loves albums and wants to support artists.”
