Taylor Swift: How She Started

  • Posted on January 6, 2014 at 3:22 am

001 About Taylor SwiftAmong the music lovers, who would definitely forget the name of the girl who sang many country music including fifteen, Tim McGraw, we are never ever getting back together, you belong with me, mean, teardrops in my guitar, love story, red, begin again, and so on?

Taylor Swift. She is a multi-Grammy award-winning American singer and songwriter, and who is also considered as the youngest artist in history to ever win the Album of the Year Award in the Grammy’s. Amazing, is it not? Other than that, she had also been awarded as the Billboard’s woman of the year during 2011. For seven weeks, her latest album entitled Red has topped in the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. Even over the past years, her other past albums, Fearless and Speak Now, had also topped the Billboard for 11 weeks and 6 weeks, respectively.  Also, during the year 2010, Taylor Swift also received the awards for Country Album of the Year for her second album Fearless, Best Country Female Vocal Performance, and Best Country Song in the Grammy Awards. Among these awards and recognitions mentioned, there are still plenty of awards unmentioned that are attached to the name of the twenty four year old singer and songwriter.

Taylor Swift, behind all these awards, recognitions, and all her fan’s supports, also grew up as an ordinary girl in a small town. Taylor Swift grew up in a Christmas tree farm in Reading, Pennsylvania. She was born on the 13th day of December, year 1989. And is probably one of the reasons behind the number 13 as her favourite number. Her parents are Scott and Andrea Swift.  By the year 1998 though, when Taylor was 9 years of age, her family decided to move to Wyomissing, Pennsylvania.

Taylor had first learned to play three chords in the guitar from a computer repairman when she was at the age of 12. She was then motivated and inspired to write her own songs. The first that she had ever written was entitled “Lucky you.” Later on though, after five years of staying in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, she and her family moved to Nashville where she had her artist development deal with the RC Records. Later on though, by the age of 15, she decided to be separated from the RC Records and release her own album with her original songs on it. When she was 16, Scott Borchetta, the executive of the Dreamworks Records, discovered her talent in an industry showcase in Nashville. By then, with the Big Machine Records, a new independent label established by Scott Borchetta, Taylor Swift became one of its first signings.

And that is all where Taylor Swift had started. Her passion for music and her dedication to write her own music had brought her to where she is now.

3 Tips On How To Make It In The Music Industry

  • Posted on November 2, 2013 at 5:03 pm

120 how to make it in the music industryAlmost everyone wants to get into the music industry. That is why for the past few years, numerous singing competitions on TV were produced to showcase the musical talents of those looking for their big break. You have witnessed the journey to stardom of some of your favorite artists and you cannot deny the fact that you have been dreaming of following their footsteps. However, the path to fame is not as easy as 1, 2, 3. You have to have the right combination of talent, skill and drive in order to make sold-out albums and concerts. If you want to know the secrets to finally achieving your dreams, here are three tips for you on how to make it in the music industry.

 

1. Make Your Talent Exceptional

You cannot very well get into the music industry if you do not have what it takes to be an outstanding artist. The first and most important thing you need is exceptional talent. With the number of struggling artists trying to make it, you have to make yourself stand out and you can only do that if you have a talent that no one has. Hone your talent, study more techniques and practice until it is almost perfect. Even if you have the talent, if it is not yet ripe for picking, no one will sign you up to be one of their artists so you have to have a talent that they cannot say no to.

 

2. Be Determined, Courageous and Motivated

You need to have as much determination, courage and motivation as you can muster. In the music industry, you may experience rejection so many times that you would want to give up at some point. However, if you have enough of these factors, you can go through with it until you reach the top. Accept constructive criticisms and do something about them especially if they are coming from people who know what they are doing. Remember to never let destructive criticisms let you down because as they say, you cannot please everybody.

 

3. Broaden Your Network

Most of the time, to be successful in your chosen field, you have to know the right people. This is very true for the music industry. That is why you should broaden your network at an early time. Know people who can help you get that big break. Attend events that you think will let you meet those big personalities in the music industry. Try to widen and lengthen your exposure and make people believe in you as much as you believe in yourself.

These tips on how to make it in the music industry will definitely help you in making a name for yourself in your chosen career.

The Origin Of Country Music

  • Posted on June 20, 2013 at 1:32 pm

Music, just like art, is one part of our lives that we cannot do away. It is something that can affect our lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually. There are lots of music genres nowadays and different people have different taste in music which affects them also in different ways. But one of the most popular genres that have been in the music world for a very long time is country music. So if you are trying to ask what kind of music this is, then here is a little background of it.

136 Country music

This kind of genre was started in Southern America. It has been a part of American history and this type of music was usually played in normal and simple occasions back in the day. For example, they would play ballads, rhythms, simple melodies and harmonies whenever they have gatherings. With the use of certain instruments mostly guitars, banjos, and harmonicas, they get to compose songs which is pleasing to the ears. Usually, the kind of lyrics that this music has is just about anything that happens in their lives. They would make music in connection with their journeys, their daily activities, their country, and most especially their loved ones. Most especially, the cowboys in their past time were always the ones who would compose songs when they traveled from one place to another. They would sing songs about their adventures and because of that their songs would be passed on to different people when they go from town to town. It was only in the 1940′s where this kind of genre emerged from a past time to something popular. It became the face of western music and it evolved into many styles which later on branched out into different subgenres. For example, nowadays, there are Christian, rock, blues, and folk country and if you listen closely to each one, there would be a slight difference in the tempo, melody, tune, and most of all the lyrics of their songs.

Indeed, this kind of music is something that we should not forget about because it does not only symbolize the artistic side of the early people back in the day but also their history. If you try to listen carefully, feel the music, and understand the lyrics, you will find a much deeper meaning in the songs. That is why music is very similar to art for it is something that is difficult to understand yet that kind of factor is the one that gives it its beauty.

Tim McGraw was basically written for her ex boyfriend named Brandon Borello. It was dedicated to him because their relationship has ended when he had to go to college. She had an interview with USA today and she told them that Borello had brought the album and he liked it so much even though his present girlfriend was not pleased.

Picture to Burn was obviously for an ex-boyfriend whom she really really hate because he never let Swift drive his truck.

Back to December was about her ex-boyfriend and ex-costar in Valentine’s Day, Taylor Lautner. This song is obviously an apology song for him. The chorus is “So this is me swallowing my pride standing in front of you saying I’m sorry for that night. And I’ll go back to December all the time.” At the very end of the song, Swift gave a hint that she wants to be reunited with Lautner. They were used to be called as the Taylor Squared because they both have the same name. But unfortunately, they haven’t reunited since then. At the recent American Music Awards, Swift performed back to December and right after her bridge, she added the song “Apologize” by the band One Republic which was a alluded to the parody video of Taylor Lautner.

It was rumored that Jake Gyllenhaal spent almost $150,000 for a private jet which was used for his date with Swift. Swift dedicated We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together to Gyllenhaal.

Swift had a fling with John Mayer one time. It was rumored that Dear John and I Knew You Were Trouble were about Mayer.

Sam Armstrong was also one of her ex-boyfriends. Unfortunately, Armstrong cheated on Swift and she made up a song entitled Should’ve Said No. It was obviously him because in the CD Booklet, every S A and M was capitalized in order within the lyrics.

All of Swift’s songs was inspired by some of her ex-boyfriends. And luckily, all of her songs made it to the top billboard.
